VINCE MCMAHON/OLIVER LUCK: Vince McMahon, Oliver Luck settle XFL lawsuit days before hitting trial

Posted on 6/20/122 by Colin Vassallo

Vince McMahon and former XFL Commissioner
Oliver Luck have reached a settlement in
their lawsuit according to the Sports
Business Journal, days after the two failed
mediation and the case was headed to trial
on July 11.

Luck was seeking $24 million in compensation
from Alpha Entertainment LLC, the parent
company of the XFL, for wrongful
termination. McMahon countersued saying that
Luck was fired for leaking confidential
information, using his phone for personal
use, and abandoning ship when COVID-19 hit,
among others.

The settlement terms are unknown but Luck’s
attorney filed a motion to get the records
permanently sealed.

“The parties reached an agreement to resolve
this case on June 16, 2022,” attorney Paul
Dobrowski wrote. McMahon’s lawyer, Jerry
McDevitt, did not oppose the motion.

The XFL eventually folded and declared
bankrupt with Dwayne Johnson and his team
purchasing it out of bankruptcy court.

McMahon is now facing an even bigger battle
as he is under investigation for a $3
million payout in hush money. Last week,
McMahon voluntarily stepped down from
Chairman and CEO of WWE pending the outcome
of the investigation. His daughter,
Stephanie, has been named interim Chairwoman
and CEO.
