The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that federal prosecutors have been interviewing women who have accused Vince McMahon of inappropriate sexual behaviour as another accusation is levelled against John Laurinaitis.

WSJ reports that “Over the summer, feds executed a search warrant for McMahon’s phone and served him a subpoena for documents related to allegations of “rape, sex trafficking, sexual assault, commercial sex transaction, harassment or discrimination” against current or former WWE employees.”

The woman who were interviewed in the investigation include:

  • A WWE contractor whom McMahon allegedly sent unsolicited nude photos and sexually harassed;
  • A former WWE wrestler who said McMahon coerced her into giving him oral sex;
  • Former WWE referee Rita Chatterton, who publicly accused McMahon of raping her;
  • A spa manager who said McMahon assaulted her at a Southern California resort;

Last year, Chatterton reached a settlement with McMahon.

As far as Laurinaitis’ involvement is concerned federal prosecutors spoke to a former WWE employee who alleges “the head of talent relations at the company at the time, John Laurinaitis, demoted her after she broke off an affair with him”.

It is not clear who the former WWE employee is or was.

Former WCW, WWE superstar Torrie Wilson is shedding some new light on perhaps how the female talent were treated and felt during the WWE’s Attitude Era which often featured the women in mud pit matches, bikini matches and matches in which they were required to rip off each other’s clothes.

Wilson told Chris Van Vliet that: “They were all mortifying, people don’t realize. I went out there and owned it the best I could and pushed through the fear but it was mortifying. I remember specifically a house show that I was in this bikini showdown with Dawn Marie and Sable and someone else. I was standing in the corner watching one of the girls dance in the middle and literally fighting back tears. I cannot believe I’m doing this right now because it got to like a raunchy point, and I’m like, I don’t want to be a part of this but that was also my job,” she said.

In the interview Wilson also says that McMahon pressured her into doing hardcore pay-per-view after her Playboy shoot.

“It was really hard for me to say ‘no’ but I absolutely didn’t want that,” she said.
