You cannot make this stuff up. XFL players were suing the XFL after it shut down back on March 13, 2020. The players were suing to recover 14,560 dollars according to a players group. Well, they are going to win, but they are not going to get the amount they were hoping for.

According to the Athletic’s Daniel Kaplan the players will get around 580 dollars rather than the 14,560 they sued for.

To add insult to injury, the players will not even get the money right now. They have to wait until next year or the end of this year to get their lousy 580 bucks.

The XFL is expected to return with a new owner in 2022, but it has not worked too well over the years. Hopefully the Rock can get it working correctly because it has not been a very amazing investment over the years.
