Vince McMahon settles XFL lawsuit with Oliver Luck

When the XFL ceased operations midway through its first season back in operations since 2001, it left a bad taste in mouths across the greater football/WWE landscape.

After turning in a few weeks of promising performances, with good engagement on social media and strong word of mouth among fans looking to watch some meaningful football in the spring, the COVID-19 pandemic put the league on ice like, well, like basically every other professional sports league in the country, and, despite having a strong infrastructure in place, the XFL never returned to the field again, as the name was sold off to one of Vince McMahon’s biggest success stories, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and the then-WWE Chairman asserted in court that he would not try to pursue the venture again.

Was that the end of that? Theoretically, yes, but one person in particular, then-league commissioner Oliver Luck, had an issue with how his stint in the company ended, and he filed suit to the tune of $24 million on April 21st of 2020 for “wrongful termination” as a result.

Fast forward two years into the future and the two parties involved have officially settled their issues out of court instead of taking the case in front of the judge on July 11th, in an agreement that has been sealed by the court indefinitely, according to NBC Sports,

With one of the last loose ends of the second XFL run now tied off, McMahan can turn his attention back to the WWE, where he remains in place as the head booker/creative lead despite having stepped down from his role as chairman and CEO of the business following reports of his improprieties forcing the rest of the board to pursue an independent investigation into the $3 million payouts he’s paid out to a former employee.
