Vince McMahon has started a new company called Alpha Entertainment and many believe this company’s intention is to bring back some form of the once-defunct XFL football league.
When reached regarding the matter, a WWE spokesperson told us:
“Vince McMahon has established and is personally funding a separate entity from WWE, Alpha Entertainment, to explore investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscapes, including professional football. Mr. McMahon has nothing further to announce at this time.”
I should also note that WWE registered for XFL trademarks a few months ago and, during the XFL 30 for 30 documentary on ESPN, McMahon and Dick Eberson expressed interest in starting the XFL again. The TV landscape has changed since 2001 and there are a ton of networks looking for live sports content so a new football league could work out better than it did last time.
But from the sounds of it, the plan is to have everything ready to announce by January 25th, 2018.
Conservative blogger Brad Shepard broke the XFL news on Friday night:
EXCLUSIVE: Vince McMahon is looking to bring back the XFL and may announce it on January 25th, 2018.
