Up next in ESPN’s critically acclaimed 30 for 30 documentary series is This Was The XFL. I’ve been chomping at the bit to check this one out since the trailer dropped back in December, as the XFL was both a revolutionary and totally ridiculous concept.
Vince McMahon of the WWE and Dick Ebersol of NBC tried to create an extreme alternative to the NFL, but they ended up failing miserably. The league folded after one season in 2001, which feels like it was a million years ago. Just watch this video about poor Jeff Brohm returning to the field after taking a brutal hit. I can practically feel the onset of CTE through my computer screen.
But instead of dwelling on the upsetting player safety issues, let’s focus on sky cams, scantily clad cheerleaders, and He Hate Me jerseys. Here are all of the different ways you can watch This Was The XFL.
