Former WWE writer Vince Russo has weighed in on Janel Grant’s lawsuit against Vince McMahon, emphasizing the significance of the text message evidence provided.
Grant’s lawsuit, filed on January 25, accuses McMahon of sexual assault and trafficking over three years, featuring screenshots of explicit text exchanges allegedly involving McMahon.
Speaking on Sportskeeda’s The Wrestling Outlaws show alongside Dr. Chris Featherstone and EC3, Russo underscored the potential impact of these text messages on the case. He acknowledged that some fans may already be considering boycotting WWE due to the allegations against McMahon.
Russo further highlighted the straightforward nature of the evidence, suggesting that obtaining McMahon’s phone records could easily verify the origin of the messages:
“I’ve already read people saying that [they will stop watching WWE] already,” Russo said. “Let’s be honest, she gave, as evidence, text messages. Bro, all they have to do is get Vince’s phone records, and they’re going to do that.
They’re gonna get Vince’s phone records, and they’re gonna be able to tell if those text messages came from Vince’s phone. I mean, it’s that simple.”
