Really disappointing if that's the case. They actually did a fairly decent job this time round.

It’s mad that they were doing alright this time and it’s been killed off by external factors. But selfishly, I’m glad that it means less promotion and crossover stuff on the wrestling. Although I don’t think there was that much this time compared the old XFL.

That's not actually a new revelation: WWE was given the stock as part of the deal with the new XFL company "buying" the rights to the XFL brand from WWE.

Yeah. Effectively WWE as a corporate entity owned some class b stock, so in effect WWE still had "no involvement" in the same way I have "no involvement" with HSBC despite having some shares with them. I imagine WWE as a company have multiple shares / investments with other businesses. 

Plus Im sure it helped with relations with the board members of WWE knowing that XFL success = financial income for WWE as a company.

In isolation, I feel sorry that XFL folded in this manner. A real shame.
