More WWE Superstars Weigh In On Vince McMahon Allegations

Kevin Owens, Becky Lynch offer thoughts about disgraced former chairman.

Vince McMahon

As WrestleMania season heats up and WWE wrestlers begin doing more media appearances in advance of the big show, it's only logical that more superstars will be asked for their thoughts on disgraced former chairman Vince McMahon, who was ousted from the company -- again -- last month amid allegations of sexual assault and sex trafficking. Two more major stars weighed in recently.

McMahon is the subject of a civil suit filed in January by former WWE employee Janel Grant, who alleged sexual, physical and emotional abuse by McMahon between 2019 and 2022. There also is a federal investigation for sexual assault and sex trafficking.

Becky Lynch, who just punched her ticket to WrestleMania 40 to challenge Rhea Ripley for the Women's World Championship, offered her thoughts while speaking to Alex McCarthy of Inside The Ropes:

"I've been fortunate in my career that I've always felt supported by the company. These allegations are horrible. It's hard to reconcile, as a talent and as a woman, but my experience in WWE has only ever been amazing. Yes, in the beginning, there were some restrictions put on things. We couldn't punch, we had to hair pull, there were weird things there. Being able to push us forward, push women forward, I'm very grateful for that and the opportunity to even have my family. This company...some of these things are hard to reconcile."

Kevin Owens also spoke with Alex McCarthy for the Daily Mail and commented on his former boss' troubles:

"Everything that has come out is awful. Just terrible. There's really no words to describe how sad this makes me feel. If the people [who] spoke out went through what they went through, that's terrible. It's shameful and it can't ever happen again. That's what it comes down to."

Several WWE superstars, legends, and Hall-of-Famers have commented on the horrific allegations against McMahon, with the vast majority -- including current superstars Randy Orton and Seth Rollins -- condemning them. Only John Cena stands out as someone who not only didn't condemn the situation, but downplayed it as a "hill to climb" while professing his "love" for Vince.
