Vince McMahon’s revival of the XFL did not work out at all. The league’s former commissioner, Oliver Luck, sued McMahon over his firing just before the XFL folded once more. Now they are set to take things to trial.

A judge has set the date for a trial involving Vince McMahon and Oliver Luck. According to the Sunday Daily Update on F4W Wrestling Observer, the trial will begin on July 11.

Judge S. Dave Vatti issued orders for the trial date to begin in July. The Observer noted that WWE claims Luck destroyed evidence within an hour of being terminated by the XFL.

This is the first firm trial date regarding the lawsuit since Oliver Luck filed against Vince McMahon in the spring of 2020. Previously, Connecticut US District Judge Victor Bolden had set two separate deadlines regarding the lawsuit.

Judge Bolden had previously made several other rulings regarding the case in September of 2021. He dismissed Luck’s claim that McMahon violated “the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.”

The judge had also refused to dismiss the same claim against Alpha Entertainment, the private enterprise Vince McMahon founded when relaunching the XFL.
