The XFL may have a new ownership group, but there’s still ongoing litigation from with previous owner Vince McMahon.
For those who are unaware of the conditions behind the trial, Luck sued McMahon, Alpha, and WWE back in April of 2020 after the XFL folded. The suit claims Vince McMahon wrongfully terminated his contract days before the league filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. McMahon and Alpha Entertainment countered by saying that Luck violated his contract and was insubordinate, which gave McMahon reason to fire him and ended their obligation to pay the rest of his contract.
Needless to say, this has been an ugly battle and it hasn’t even really begun.
Earlier today a settlement hearing took place for Oliver Luck and Vince McMahon’s lawsuits over the former’s XFL firing. According to PWInsider a hearing was scheduled for 11 AM ET today at the United States Courthouse in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
At the moment there’s no information on what took place at the hearing. Earlier this month we reported that the lawsuit has a trial date set for July 11th. If the two parties cannot resolve the issue with a settlement, then we should see every settled in July. Most of the documents in the case have been sealed, depending on how this plays out it’s possible they never come to light.
Most XFL fans we’ve interacted with are on Team Luck and are hoping to see him paid what he feels he’s owed from the former XFL owner.
