Oliver Luck Wants Vince McMahon To Set Aside $23.8 Million Over Lawsuit


According to a report from Law 360 and OK Magazine, former XFL commissioner Oliver Luck has asked that Vince McMahon set aside $23.8 million dollars for a potential award in Luck’s wrongful termination lawsuit. Luck recently filed a motion asking a federal judge to order McMahon to put aside the money in case he wins the lawsuit he filed back in April.

Following his firing from the XFL, Luck sued McMahon. Luck’s firing came just four days before the XFL filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Luck claims he was fired without cause and is owed his pay for the remaining three years of his contract.

Luck says the evidence is clearly in his favor and says McMahon should be ordered to put the money in escrow while they wait for the court to make a decision. According to the filing, “The facts clearly demonstrate that Mr. Luck never performed any act or omission that would qualify for termination for cause under the employment contract.”
