Vince couldn't have picked a better time. Also Vince isn't stupid, look how long WWE has been promoted on ESPN. He was reintroducing WWE to that market again. He's had this under his hat for a while.

I must be missing something, but didn't see anything about race being a factor in the XFL...

The XFL players will be contractually obligated to stand during the anthem, in response to the protests by black athletes in the NFL.

The only good thing out of this is hopefully it'll keep Vince distracted enough that he'll stop meddling with the WWE :D

I've never seen a man who truly hates the business that made him and his family a dynasty like Vince does.....the man has such a LONG history of failure in his outside projects (I mean is the movie studio even still a thing??) It's hard to believe he can do anything successful that's NOT wrestling, and God help him he'll try to run both and run himself right into the grave doing it......

Hell it isn't even going to start for 2 years. He could kick the bucket before they even take the field.....he sure as hell isn't getting any younger!

As long as the there is more focus on the game, and they can get some good athletes that can play it's worth a shot I guess. I'll give it a chance. I just hope the games end up better than the original XFL, because a lot of those were such crap shows!

Well.... we can finally bring Tommy Maddox and "He Hate Me" Rod Smart out of retirement now!!  :laugh:

I remember I had both of those guys in my one and only XFL Fantasy Football League, and I was able to easily win our SuperBowl that year.... what year was that? 1998? 1999?

The movie studio is still running. The Miz dropped the IC title until Monday so he could go film the 30,000th Marine movie that no one gives a crap about.

This is going to be more successful than people think. The NFL audience is divided. Tired of New England Patriots winning, nobody tackles anymore, players kneel during anthem. Vince couldn't have picked a better time. Also Vince isn't stupid, look how long WWE has been promoted on ESPN. He was reintroducing WWE to that market again. He's had this under his hat for a while.

I think there's other factors regarding the NFL's ratings decline: cord-cutting, losing younger people to sports like basketball and soccer, and the knowledge of what football does to the human body play a factor too.

I certainly believe the national anthem protests have turned a section of the audience off. Whether it's people who disagree with the protests (which is their right to feel that way) or people who cry out "STICK TO SPORTS" (which is impossible), I think it factors in. The New England Patriot dynasty I would argue however is a good thing. Over the years, I've come to believe that dynasties are good for sports. People want to see David vs. Goliath, and they want to see the dynasty fall.

As for no one tackling anymore, there's a simple solution: have rugby players teach tackling. They know how to tackle and do so with minimal risk of injury.

Don't let this signature distract you from the fact that Dele Alli has 29 more PL goals than Jack Wilshere.

I'm hoping it increases the value of all the original XFL product I bought back during the first run. Trading cards, beanies, stickers, etc. =)
