Blum had been with WWE since 2006.

Blum was named as Corporate Officer No. 2 in the lawsuit filed by former employee Janel Grant against WWE, Vince McMahon, and John Laurinaitis alleging sexual assault and sex trafficking.

WWE gave the following statement regarding Blum and Nick Khan (Corporate Officer No. 1) being referred to in the lawsuit:

"WWE takes Ms. Grant's allegations very seriously and has no tolerance for any physical abuse or unwanted physical contact. Neither Nick Khan nor Brad Blum, prior to the lawsuit being filed on January 25, 2024, were aware of any allegation by Ms. Grant that she was the victim of abuse or unwanted physical contact; nor does the complaint allege that either had knowledge of such."
