WWE president Nick Khan among executives revealed in Vince McMahon sex-trafficking suit

The identities of two WWE executives identified as Corporate Officers No. 1 and 2 in a sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon and former talent-relations executive John Laurinaitis have been revealed. 

Front Office Sports reported the two men to be WWE president Nick Khan and COO Brad Blum. 

It’s the latest revelation from a lawsuit filed by Janel Grant in January that rocked the pro wrestling world and led to the resignation of McMahon from parent company TKO in the face of serious allegations against the former WWE chairman.

The suit, which was filed against McMahon and the WWE, does not allege any sexual misconduct by either Khan or Blum, but charges that the pair were part of a scheme to employ Grant “in a completely undefined role, except for the understanding that she remain a sexual slave to be used and trafficked by McMahon within the WWE.”

The suit, according to FOS, paints the two execs as men who helped to facilitate and cover it up to protect the WWE. 

WWE denied that Khan or Plum had any knowledge of what had been going on

“WWE takes Ms. Grant’s allegations very seriously and has no tolerance for any physical abuse or unwanted physical contact,” a WWE spokesperson said in a statement to FOS. “Neither Nick Khan nor Brad Blum, prior to the lawsuit being filed on January 25, 2024, were aware of any allegation by Ms. Grant that she was the victim of abuse or unwanted physical contact; nor does the complaint allege that either had knowledge of such.” 

Grant’s lawyer, Ann Callis, confirmed to Front Office Sports that their reporting had been accurate about the identities of Corporate Officers No. 1 and 2.

Vince McMahon’s daughter, Stephanie McMahon, was also named as Corporate Officer No. 3 in the suit, though she is only ambiguously mentioned, and former general counsel and head of WWE’s legal department Brian Nurse was identified as Corporate Officer No. 4. 

The suit alleged that McMahon and Laurinaitis sexually assaulted and trafficked Grant on numerous occasions, with the lawsuit laying out several graphic instances. 

McMahon and Laurinaitis have both denied the allegations with McMahon saying that he would “vigorously defend myself against these baseless accusations.” 

Janel Grant filed a lawsuit accusing McMahon of sexually abusing her and trafficking her to other men inside the wresting giant.

Laurinaitis has previously claimed his innocence and his lawyer, Edward Brennan, told Vice News that “Mr. Laurinaitis is a victim in this case, not a predator.”

“The truth will come out,” he said.
