Attorney claims former WWE executive John Laurinaitis is a victim of Vince McMahon

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

An attorney for former WWE executive John Laurinaitis claims that his client is a victim of Vince McMahon. “Mr. Laurinaitis denies the allegations in the misguided complaint and will be vigorously defending these charges in Court, not the media,” attorney Edward Brennan told Vice News regarding the lawsuit filed by former WWE employee Janel Grant. “Like the Plaintiff, Mr. Laurinaitis is a victim in this case, not a predator. The truth will come out.”

When Vice News followed up, Brennan added the following: “Read the allegations. Read the Federal Statute. Power, control, employment supervisory capacity, dictatorial sexual demands with repercussions if not met. Count how many times in the complaint Vince exerts control over both of them.” Read more at

Powell’s POV: Grant’s lawsuit alleges that McMahon and Laurinaitis sexually assaulted her at WWE’s corporate headquarters, and that McMahon trafficked Grant to Laurinaitis. Let’s just say that after reading the lawsuit filed by Grant, I won’t be attending any candlelight vigils for “Victim” Johnny.

  1. “Like the Plaintiff, Mr. Laurinaitis is a victim in this case” he’s really trying to put Laurinaitis on the same level as the accuser? I get that’s what attorneys do, but that’s still pretty rich

  2. I remember Jim Ross saying he shed no tears when Laurinaitis was fired. Ross felt like he gave him a chance, but Laurinaitis was arrogant and ungrateful. Now he’s turning on McMahon to establish his story first.

    I wonder what his lawyer told the Bella Twins’ mom. She has to be torn apart right now.
