The contract dispute between former XFL commissioner Oliver Luck and league owner Vince McMahon spilled into the public eye Wednesday through a response to Luck’s wrongful termination lawsuit.
McMahon’s attorneys said he fired Luck “for cause” and cited three examples of what he called a failure to follow “multiple” XFL policies and directives.
Luck received his termination notice April 9, one day before the XFL suspended operations and three days before it declared bankruptcy. The league is now for sale, according to McMahon’s attorneys.
McMahon hired Luck in May 2018 to be the public face of his second attempt to establish a professional football league. Luck’s contract called for a $5 million annual salary and a $2 million bonus. McMahon personally guaranteed the contract but claims that Luck’s actions invalidated it.
