Why is she waiting til now? Ashley’s been dead awhile. If someone is my best friend and I have all this information I’m not waiting til I get on tv to share it years and years after the fact.

Maybe nobody wanted to listen before. I find the why not argument very pointless, personally. It only serves to dismiss victims even if not intentional. Don't make excuses for these ppl, who cares how long it's been.

Let’s not forget Maria & Ron Simmons were on that tour. Found her in Kuwait even. Not a word.

Maria was the only one that refused to provide a statement saying nothing happened either, she was under contract with WWE at the time of the original lawsuit. She's mentioned recently about having things "she can't say" so not sure what she's held to if anything

I don't know all the details regarding Maria at all either, I just recently found out she refused to give the statement but other than that she's been very vague but just encouraging support for women.

Jerry McDevitt said that everyone on that tour but Maria Kanellis had told WWE they knew nothing about it and he described not knowing why, when WWE asked, that Kanellis refused to say anything.

Sounds like she might have been threatened behind the scenes and signed an NDA for it. :draper2

Fwiw they probably thought they were helping Ashley at first, even if they thought Vince was a scumbag, there was probably that idea he'd at least be loyal to his own talent being abused by outside parties.

Not speaking up after of course is an entirely different conversation but I wouldn't particularly blame them more than anyone else who had knowledge. I can't really fault any wrestlers not speaking up when Ashley herself agreed to silence it. I think it's normal to want to honor the wishes of the victim even in situations like this where they shouldn't

It’s more than likely HHH, Khan, etc just didn’t want anymore shit coming to light and wanted whatever Vince was trying to do in coming back to WWE as easy as possible, just to keep everything as quiet as possible.

I can’t look at HHH, Steph, Shane, etc as the hero’s some people online paint them as. They knew, and at best they did nothing to help the victims and just kept things quiet.

This is just going to keep getting worse and worse as more people come forward and more people are implicated. But it has to happen.

Would the reason be money if you're ready to tell via the media and not legal action? As in money to pay for legal proceedings and not getting money for a media appearance.

Yeah especially with a company as large as TKO. They can stretch it awhile and the more legal bills you have to pay the easier it is to pressure into a settlement as well.

I think the other big reason would just be risk if blowback in the industry but personally unless they're a current WWE employee, I think we might actually be past that level of blackballing from the entire business

Some more information has surfaced regarding the ongoing lawsuit involving Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis and WWE.

Fightful Select is reporting that the unnamed executives that are being heavily speculated on remains a mystery to many within the company, however, one source high up in the WWE claims that one of them had “long been gone from WWE.”​

A fairly large law firm is now looking to start a class action case it seems


WWE Founder Vince McMahon Under Investigation for Exploitation and Sex Trafficking

Vince McMahon and WWE/UFC are under investigation for sexual assault and sex trafficking after former employees of WWE/UFC came forward with allegations of profoundly disturbing misconduct.

According to a recent lawsuit, the founder and other leaders forced employees to participate in sexual acts by threatening to terminate their employment and share intimate images of them.

This is not the first time Vince McMahon or WWE/UFC have faced accusations of sex abuse.
  • In 1992, Rita Chatterton, the first female referee, came forward with allegations that she was raped by Vince McMahon while traveling with him in his limousine.
  • In 2022, investigators seized documents and discovered nondisclosure agreements and multi-million dollar payouts covering up sexual misconduct.
Thousands of abuse victims are speaking up every year to receive the compensation and justice they deserve. Fill in the form above or call us today for a confidential and free conversation with one of our female attorneys.
