In January, former WWE employee Janel Grant filed a lawsuit against Vince McMahon and WWE, accusing McMahon of sexual assault, emotional abuse, and sex trafficking.

Speaking to Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post, Randy Orton was asked about the allegations.

“I’ve seen the horrible things online that I don’t want to believe because this man has done so many things for me,” Orton said. “If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have been given second and third chances [in WWE]. I wouldn’t be in the position that I’m in now if it wasn’t for that man. So part of me wants to not believe it and then the other part of me understands that he could have done all these wonderful things for me and the business and created this amazing thing that will go on and on well after he’s gone, but on the other hand he’s human and he made some f–king terrible mistakes.”

Orton continued, “There’s three sides to every story. Their side, the other side and then the truth. I think a lot more has to come out before I can really speak on any of this. I think that would be the case for any talent that you ask, but I do know about Vince McMahon the man that I’ve known for the past 24 years personally and I owe him for everything he’s done for me. I say that with conviction because I won’t be in this position without a lot of help from him. But if these allegations are true, then it’s some horrible s–t right there. I’m torn. It’s hard.”

McMahon has denied the allegations against him.

He is under federal investigation.
