Real Reason Vince McMahon Settled Oliver Luck Lawsuit?

Real Reason Vince McMahon Settled Oliver Luck Lawsuit? WWE

A new report has discussed the Vince McMahon vs Oliver Luck lawsuit settlement, sharing a possible reason for the two sides coming to terms.

McMahon and former XFL commissioner Oliver Luck will reportedly no longer be going to trial next month after reaching a settlement in a wrongful termination lawsuit stemming from the 2020 relaunch of the XFL.

This news came as somewhat of a surprise to some, with recent talks between McMahon and Luck’s parties ‘fizzling out’ in a matter of minutes.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer pointed this out, noting that the timing of the two sides’ agreement now makes ‘all the sense in the world’:

“It’s pretty clear that with all of the stuff on Vince’s plate, that going through a trial right now was probably the worst thing possible because it would bring a lot of coverage on every little thing, and it was also a trial that… nearly everybody thought he was gonna lose that trial, so it would be a big public loss. And this is probably a way as far as the publicity goes to cut that loss.

“The timing of it makes all the sense in the world, in the sense that, okay, this is not a time to have Vince go to court and have another set of things come out on Vince.

“Before this (the allegations/investigations becoming public) happened, it was pretty adamant both sides weren’t going to settle.”
