Oliver Luck is suing Vince McMahon for wrongful termination, as first reported by the Action Network.
Luck, along with other XFL executives, was not included in the list of creditors when the league filed for bankruptcy last week. The Action Network reported Luck’s contract as commissioner of the startup league was set to pay him between $20 and $25 million for five years.
McMahon said he had upwards of half a billion dollars set aside to fund the revamped XFL for three years, before closing the league just five weeks in. The XFL dismissed all of its employees on April 10.
Vince McMahon's lawyer Jerry McDevitt on Oliver Luck's lawsuit suing McMahon of "wrongful termination":
"His allegations will be disputed and the position of Mr. McMahon will be set forth in our response to his lawsuit."
