Vince McMahon's luck has gone from bad to worse now that the former XFL commissioner is suing him.
Vince McMahon's reboot of the XFL appeared as though it was going to be a fruitful endeavor. That was until, of course, the league had to completely shut down operations due to the Coronavirus. Despite promising to come back the following year, the XFL terminated all of its employees and then filed for bankruptcy. It was a shocking development to a story that looked as though it was actually going to be positive.
Now, McMahon is going to be in for yet another legal battle as former XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck is suing the WWE president for wrongful termination. As reported by Daniel Kaplan of the Athletic, Luck is looking to receive some of the money he missed out on due to his firing. Of course, Luck and his legal team feel as though this dismissal was unjust.
