Nick Khan, Brad Blum, Stephanie McMahon, and Brian Nurse identified as the previously unnamed corporate officers listed in Janel Grant’s lawsuit against Vince McMahon and WWE

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

WWE President Nick Khan and WWE COO Brad Blum have been identified as Corporate Officers No. 1 and No. 2 in the lawsuit filed by Janel Grant back in January. “Unlike [Vince] McMahon and [John] Laurinaitis, the two are not personally accused of sexual misconduct or violence; rather, the suit claims that they and others facilitated and covered up exploitation in ways that make WWE liable under federal anti-trafficking law,” reads a story written by Tim Marchman, Brandon Thurston, and John Pollock at Front Office Sports. Grant’s attorney Ann Callis is quoted in the story as stating, “I can confirm that these names are correct.”

The following statement from a WWE spokesperson was also published in the story: “WWE takes Ms. Grant’s allegations very seriously and has no tolerance for any physical abuse or unwanted physical contact. 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.” Read the full story at

Powell’s POV: Stephanie McMahon is also identified as Corporate Officer No. 3, while former head of WWE legal Brian Nurse is identified as Corporate Officer No. 4 in the Front Office piece. Although Khan and Blum are not listed as defendants in the lawsuit, they and others are accused of facilitating or covering up exploitation. The lawsuit also alleges that Vince McMahon introduced Grant to Khan and Blum as his fixers.

    I’m assuming a thoughtful journalist somewhere will ask the question: how would Ms. Grant know who was involved with covering up the alleged actions of McMahon?
    Seems to me like a simple question that, if really pondered, may not have an answer.

    This comes from a failed Deadspin writer citing two dirtsheet guys and literally says that Khan and Blum are not alleged to have participated. Then it says that VINCE told Janel that he told Khan and Blum about the nature of their relationship.

    It could all be true but this is shit “journalism” even by dirtsheet standards.

  3. What a sordid disgrace of a company worst wrestling excrement is. Khan needs to be removed. I doubt they can touch steph but papa h would have known I’m sure. He’s probably sweating on something coming out. Nobody truly believes he knew nothing about this.

      Literally the first thing said in the article is that neither Khan or Blum has been alleged to have participated in or known about abuse of any kind.

  4. I think this is all BS for a woman scorned and turned away. She’s not good looking. And it’s hard to believe as more “comes out” that any of this is true. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? This woman is ruining a reputation with something that is alleged only.
