Mike Tyson should be at the AAU event

There will be no doubles or nothing to present the #TNTChampships to the winner of the final between Iron @ MikTyson @ Codyroads and @Lansheit.

Vince McMahon responded to the trial
WWE chief executive Vince McMahon is facing 2020, but he is shooting at those who are attacking.
McMahon fired back through his legal team after Oliver Luck commented on a lawsuit.
Luck, the father of former NFL standout Andrew Luck, has sued McMahon over the closure of the XFL. The league did not survive the COVID-19 epidemic and closed early in the planned 2020 season.
The lawsuit filed against McMahon alleges breach of fortune. McMahon’s lawyers, however, have claimed that his use of the XFL-issued iPhone for personal reasons and the former player’s signature on legal issues, as well as his role as early commissioner of the epidemic, were neglected.
Just in: Oliver Luck asked a federal judge to issue an immediate “৮ 23.6 million” preliminary verdict against Vince McMahon, as well as to order an affiliation or embellishment of McMahon’s property and an order requiring McMahon to disclose his assets. Remedy. pic.twitter.com/at1nWv4f1u

That player, Antonio Calway, played in the NFL before the XFL. McMahon, however, argued that no player with legal issues would sign his league.
Much of the legal rhetoric between the two parties is digested by Sports Business Daily, which McMahon personally guarantees a deal with the luck of XFL parents Alpha Entertainment.

This allowed Fate McMahon to sue rather than appeal to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to oversee the XFL settlement.
Luck, who played quarterback in the NFL, was West Virginia’s athletic director and was executive vice president of the NCAA before joining the XFL.
