About two weeks ago, Vince McMahon announced his resignation as TKO Executive Chairman and from the TKO Board of Directors due to a lawsuit filed by former employee Janel Grant against McMahon, WWE, and former executive John Laurinaitis on January 25th.

Grant’s lawsuit is a litany of serious accusations, including $ex trafficking, emotional abuse, and $exual assault, catapulting McMahon and the WWE into the mainstream spotlight. This legal bombshell detonated shortly after the announcement of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joining the TKO Board of Directors and the revelation that Monday Night RAW would be migrating to Netflix in 2025.

The fallout was swift. Slim Jim, a prominent promotional partner of WWE, hit pause on its collaboration ahead of WWE Royal Rumble in response to the lawsuit. However, once McMahon stepped down, the sponsorship resumed.

In a recent development reported by The Hollywood Reporter, TKO CEO Ari Emanuel and TKO President & COO Mark Shapiro personally contacted McMahon, urging him to resign in light of the allegations.

While McMahon complied with their request, he staunchly denied the accusations levied against him. Nevertheless, he remains under federal investigation in addition to facing the lawsuit.

During an interview on the Maggie and Perloff show this morning, World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was asked about the allegations against his former boss.

Here’s what Rollins said:

“It’s awful. It’s terrible. I hate it. It’s a disgusting situation.”
