NDAs That Vince McMahon Allegedly Signed Without WWE’s Knowledge Might Not Be Enforceable

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Janel Grant, a former WWE employee, has filed a lawsuit against WWE, Vince McMahon, and John Laurinaitis in a Connecticut federal court. McMahon was accused of sex trafficking in the complaint.

According to a Vice.com article, McMahon had NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) drafted and signed without WWE’s knowledge. Vice also heard from experts who said the signed NDAs may not be enforceable.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“The issues are possibly academic in Grant’s case, as in her lawsuit, she says that McMahon didn’t pay her all of the hush money he agreed to pay her in exchange for her signing the NDA, which would almost certainly make the contract void. If similar language was used in NDAs other people signed, though—something a person familiar with the case says is a reasonable inference—they may be able to set aside the agreements.”
