Martha Hart On Vince McMahon: “I Was Not Surprised When I Heard There Was Yet Another Lawsuit”

Martha Hart, the late Owen Hart’s wife, responded to the allegations against former WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon.

A lawsuit claimed that McMahon was involved in a sex trafficking and abuse scandal involving Janel Grant, a former WWE employee. The lawsuit also named the company and its former executive, John Laurnatis.

Martha’s husband died in 1999 at the WWE Over The Edge PPV event after a horrific fall from the ceiling. Martha told NewsNation’s Ashleigh Banfield that she was not surprised by the allegations against McMahon.

“Yes, well, Ashleigh, thank you so much for inviting me on the show, and you’re right; I was a little reluctant to come on, but I thought it’s such an important topic that I just wanted to be able to contribute to that. No, I was not surprised when I heard there was yet another lawsuit (against Vince McMahon & WWE). Over the years, the WWE they’ve had many lawsuits and they’ve had a lot of bad press. I tell you, I read all of the 67 pages in that complaint, and it is absolutely horrific. I have to say that the level of wickedness that’s described is beyond the pale in that complaint, and anyone with a shred of humanity would find the indignant act just incomprehensible, frankly. So, it wasn’t a shock that there was another lawsuit, but the level of, I guess, depravity there certainly was, and I’m a doctor in mental health. I’m also the founder and director of the Owen Hart Foundation, so no matter what hat I’m wearing, I always work with at-risk people. I can tell you that it’s the — anyone that takes advantage of a vulnerable person is the most despicable type of person because these are people that need to be supported and protected, not exploited and by Janel Grant’s own admission, she was a vulnerable person. She was unemployed, her parents had passed away, she was suffering with grief, and she was also just on the cusp of financial collapse. So these are all the makings of a very vulnerable person.”

Martha mentioned her lawsuit against WWE and McMahon over her husband’s death, describing it as a David and Goliath situation. She observed that the wealthy believe their wealth has no bounds or boundaries.
