Vince McMahon files 29-page motion to force binding arbitration clause in Grant’s NDA

Former TKO Executive Chairman Vince McMahon filed a 29-page motion with the United States District Court of Connecticut to force a binding arbitration clause which was included in the NDA which Janel Grant signed back in 2021.

In the motion, McMahon’s legal team refuted Grant’s outlandish claims in the lawsuit, arguing that she was not really in financial difficulties, lived with her boyfriend in a luxury tower in Stamford during their relationship, and was not the caregiver for her parents as her father passed away two years before the two met and he was listed as widowed, which means that her mother passed away before.

The NDA included a clause that if the need arises for a dispute, it would have to be through arbitration and McMahon’s team are fighting that Grant broke the NDA by exposing their relationship and said agreement.

“Plaintiff was represented by a lawyer who negotiated the Agreement for her before she executed it. When Defendant learned that Plaintiff, despite her promises, had violated the Agreement by wrongfully disclosing both the existence of the Agreement and their relationship, he exercised his contractual right to withhold payment otherwise owed under the Agreement,” the motion said.

McMahon stopped paying what Grant was entitled to in the NDA and then filed this lawsuit against him, WWE, and John Laurinaitis.
