Did all my wildest dreams cultivate themselves into one massive wet dream!? I think it did because the XFL is going to make its return. Vince McMahon who is best known for running the WWE, a company started by his father. Under Vince, the WWE reached historic peaks and had done a great job at continuing to capture viewers imaginations over the years. Vince has held a lot of different roles during his lifetime he was an American professional wrestling promoter, former commentator, announcer, film producer, actor, and professional wrestler. Basically, the guy lives and breaths entertainment and success, the one lingering black spot on his resume is the failed football league; the XFL.
What Is The XFL?
The XFL was supposed to rival the NFL in every way, the big difference there was nothing too extreme in the XFL. The XFL was only around for one season(2001), but man did it leave an imprint, they even made a 30 for 30 about it (which you should watch if you haven’t already). Vince is selling $100 million in stock in the WWE to help finance his new project with his company Alpha Entertainment who just so happened to have file a patent on the name XFL.
The best part of the XFL coming back is that it opens the door for all these rejected NFL players to make comebacks in another league that’s not in Canada or the Arena Football League. Imagine seeing the XFL with strippers as cheerleaders, crazy celebrations, and just a ball of controlled chaos, and then all of a sudden Johnny Manziel runs out of one tunnel with Randy Moss, Chad Ochocinco, and Terrell Owens right behind him, I think I would lose my shit. You can also get guys like RGIII heck maybe even throw $40 million at Baker Mayfield to come join! The possibilities are endless, and if you’re not hyped, you’re doing something wrong.
