Mere weeks after the second iteration of the XFL canceled the remainder of its debut season and later filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, its commissioner, Oliver Luck, sued league founder Vince McMahon for wrongful termination, The Athletic reported.
“Despite fulfilling his obligations as Commissioner and CEO since May 30, 2018, Mr. Luck was wrongfully terminated by Alpha Entertainment LLC (“Alpha”), an affiliate of Defendant, on April 9, 2020,” the lawsuit reportedly says. “Thus, Alpha has repudiated Mr. Luck’s employment agreement. Mr. Luck brings this action for breach of contract and declaratory judgment against McMahon.”
