Another reason why no one who worked in the inner management at WWE over the last 10-15 years, or had close ties to those key players in the company, should be still working there, especially in key roles.

I hope so much that more people find the courage and strength to speak out, otherwise too many gonna get away unscathed, who have been a part in whichever way of this iceberg of horrible shit.

I honestly don’t think it’s even really started yet. I think so much more will come to light.

A lot of Vince's NDAs are about to be voided, this is just the beginning.

Hopefully... we all know all too well how this could also go.

And it's not just Vince, I'm sure. If he offered one Woman around like a sex toy, including towards talent as possible signing bonuses, then he sure as shit did it with more over a long time.

“I’m going to speak my truth,” Hart told me over the phone from his home in Calgary. “I’m not worried about Vince’s feelings. He’s never cared about mine.”

“I don’t have any problem with everybody kicking his head around the parking lot,” Hart said. “I’m OK with the truth coming out.”

According to the filing, McMahon coerced Grant into a three-way sexual encounter, during which McMahon allegedly defecated on Grant’s head and back while she was being raped by another man, then forced her to continue being assaulted for an hour and a half before letting her shower.

It was too much for Hart. “When you get that vision in your head, you go, ‘That’s messed up,’ ” Hart said. “It’s too sick and disgusting to really imagine.”

But at the same time, the lewd text messages included in the suit, allegedly sent by McMahon after the incident, have a convincingly familiar ring, Hart said.

“They sound like Vince,” he told me.

Wrestling has long tolerated sadistic alpha males who exploit women. Indeed, Hart spoke at length of all the sexual abuse he heard whispered about during his time in the industry. It was commonplace: “I don’t think this is the only incident of this kind of predatory behavior,” Hart said. “I think you’ll find that it’s everywhere in [WWE].”

“I always had a respect for him,” Hart said. “Now it’s tainted. I’m embarrassed that I thought so highly of him.”

Even after the 2022 revelations of alleged hush money payments from McMahon to former employees became public and he briefly resigned, Hart had kept his mouth shut. Same when McMahon forced his way back into the boardroom in 2023, despite the unresolved accusations.

But a few months ago, after hearing the advance rumblings of these latest accusations, Hart ran into Chatterton at a convention.

“I apologized from the bottom of my heart,” Hart recalled, “and I said, ‘I believe that what happened to you, happened to you. And I apologize. I was wrong.’ ”

Hart sounds genuinely remorseful when he tells me these things. He already lost his father, a legendary wrestling promoter in his own right, 20 years ago. Now, it is as though he has lost another.

“I think, despite all of the issues I ever had with Vince, I know, deep down, I always respected him; but now, knowing what kind of a weirdo he became, I have absolutely zero respect for him,” Hart wrote to me in a text message after our conversation. “I do not think I could ever shake his hand if he extended it. Too creepy.”

The previously unpublished statement was initially included as a section in the finalized affidavit, but members of Massaro’s legal team ultimately decided to leave it out because it wasn’t clearly relevant given that the lawsuit was about concussions. “Our colleagues ultimately decided we should focus only on the sexual assault and physical in-ring injuries Ashley sustained,” Mirabella said, “so I discussed this with Ashley and she agreed that we could remove it, so it was deleted. We then finalized the affidavit, she signed it, and we submitted it to the court.”

The statement reads as follows; it has been reproduced verbatim as it was provided to VICE News with the exception of one redaction.

During my time with the WWE, I had observed Vince McMahon making-out with other divas in the locker room, but he never paid attention to me, and I assumed I was not his type. This changed after my Playboy cover was released. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to fly on the company jet and stay at the same hotels as the executives for a period of time so that I could get home faster to spend more time with my daughter. On one of these occasions, Vince was attempting to get me alone with him in his hotel room late at night and I felt extraordinarily uncomfortable. He began calling the hotel room phone and my cell phone nonstop. I called Kevin Dunn to explain the situation and he said I should tell Vince I was not feeling well and would see him on TV the next day, so I did. Immediately after that night, Vince started writing my promos for me. Vince does not write promos for female wrestlers—that is the job of the creative department—and he certainly wouldn’t have, under any normal circumstances, written a promo for me. But he did, and the promos were written with the clear intention of ruining my career. I brought the first script Vince wrote for me to the WWE employee in charge of Creative at the time, Michael Hayes, and he said, ‘you’re not saying this, who the [expletive] wrote this?’ and I told him that Vince did. He said, ‘Well kid, these are the breaks,’ meaning that Vince wanted to end my career and destroy my reputation on my way out. He is known for this type of behavior and also did this to [REDACTED] upon her departure from WWE. In addition, after that night, each time I walk by him he would make vulgar sexual comments that were clearly designed to make me uncomfortable.
