Vince McMahon’s revival of the XFL did not go as planned at all. The league fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic, marking one of the many things that the pandemic destroyed. The league released their commissioner Oliver Luck in the process, and Luck followed up with a lawsuit.
Luck has asked a federal judge that he order Vince McMahon to put back $23.8 million. That amount would then go to Oliver Luck as an award for the current wrongful termination lawsuit he has against McMahon according to Law360.
Oliver Luck was fired from the XFL in April over “breach of contract.” It was alleged that Luck used his company cell phone for personal activities. Luck’s lawsuit details the final days with XFL and how McMahon attempted to ghost him.
The new filing made eariler this week says that Luck has evidence in his favor. This evidence is allegedly so clear that Vince McMahon should put back money in preparation for a big loss.
Wording in the filing says: “The facts clearly demonstrate that Mr. Luck never performed any act or omission that would qualify for termination for cause under the employment contract.” They are very confident in a victory over Vince McMahon in this case.
It is alleged that Vince McMahon guaranteed Oliver Luck a position, and he was fired without reason. Luck is looking for that money he was promised for the remaining three years of his deal.
