Vince McMahon forms and funds Alpha Entertainment: Possible XFL Revival

Recommended Posts

Good. Vince needs to stick to wrestling.

How much appetite is there for another American Football League? Surely the NFL is enough, and only they are suitably placed to run another league.

With CBS on board for the Ebersol Jr football league, Fox with the NFL, it surely closes a lot of doors for Vince. He ideally needs a major network to pick up the XFL. ABC I doubt would want it, NBC is a outside possibility but they got burnt before, CW could be likely but I have a feeling they'll be broadcasting games via the WWE Network. Shouldn't Vince call it quits now and say it was an early April fools day joke.

CBS have a deal with Ebersol Jr? Surely this is the deal that Vince needs to get in on. Isn't he bezzie mates with Ebersol Snr?

CBS also show the NFL, and the new league is a 'summer' league. From what I've read, the XFL will be too, and could easily end up on Fox. It makes the most sense considering who is involved. Ebersol Snr is still an advisor with NBC, which doesn't look like an immediate fit for the revamped XFL, but you never know, and Ebersol Jr directed the recent XFL 30 for 30 documentary which is a lovely little addition to it all.

Just announced that Oliver Luck (a former NFL quarterback & father of current Colts QB Andrew) is to be CEO/Commissioner of the XFL.

He's got a pretty distinguished background in sports administration, so they seem to be going down the 'serious' route for now...

He is blatantly sowing the seeds for the inevitable "I'm sorry honey, we can't afford another run at congress" in a few years.

He does, but she was running for elected office, her role is appointed. It's like the difference between a cabinet minister and a government advisor.  Mind you, I can picture Vince asking Donnie to give her a milk monitor job to keep her out of Vinces magnificent hair for 4 years.

This is actually happening then?  I can't see this is going to be anything but a huge financial failure, but fair play.. the mad old bastard has got it off the ground.
