McMahon Responds

In response to the lawsuit, McMahon labeled the allegations  "meritless" and "the height of hypocrisy," asserting that the relationship was consensual, Wresting Inc. reports.

McMahon's legal team argued that Grant did not disclose the messages and images she sent, focusing only on what McMahon sent her. 

The court filing further alleges that Grant was in love with McMahon, wanted a relationship even after signing a nondisclosure agreement, and sought to continue living in the same building as him.

Grant, who worked at WWE between June 2019 and March 2022, allegedly asked McMahon for financial gifts, including clothes, money for plastic surgery, and other items. 

McMahon's response to the lawsuit stressed that he deleted the text messages when he ended the relationship with Grant, indicating a lack of evidence from his side.

Furthermore, McMahon filed a motion to take the dispute to arbitration, arguing that the matter should be settled privately due to the nondisclosure agreement. He was willing to cooperate, believing the matter would be resolved through arbitration rather than court.
