Vince McMahon under federal investigation for sex trafficking allegations

News for Vince McMahon have gone from bad to worse as the Wall Street Journal has revealed that the former WWE chief has been under a federal investigation for sex trafficking allegations.

The story says that federal agents executed a search warrant for Vince’s phone and subpoenaed him for various documents regarding allegations of rape, sex trafficking, sexual assault, commercial sex transaction, harassment or discrimination against current and and former WWE employees.

Federal prosecutors in New York have talked with different women over the past few months, all of whom accused McMahon of some type of sexual misconduct. The WSJ story says that women named in the grand jury subpoena include a “WWE contractor whom McMahon allegedly sent unsolicited nude photos and sexually harassed; a former WWE wrestler who said McMahon coerced her into giving him oral sex; former WWE referee Rita Chatterton, who publicly accused McMahon of raping her; a spa manager who said McMahon assaulted her at a Southern California resort; and a former WWE employee who alleged the head of talent relations at the company at the time, John Laurinaitis, demoted her after she broke off an affair with him.”

McMahon has denied all allegations against him but resigned from Executive Chairman of TKO Group Holdings last week.
