I called it when they didn't bring a team to Oakland
The league was doomed from that point on
Yeah, it had nothing to do with COVID-19. Oakland said, "no." They didn't have a place for a XFL team to play.
Don't try to rewrite history, bro
but they did for the nfl. lol
Yes. Because the NFL season didn't conflict with preparations for the baseball season. The XFL season did.
but that stadium wasn't nfl worthy
Vince is trying to sell the XFL.
SWERVE. Ted Turner buys the XFL and buries it
The circle of life is then complete!
Why would he dig something already buried up just to bury it again? That would be almost as bad as someone buying the AAF and then not using it.
XFL Commisioner (Luck) suing XFL CEO (Vince) for not paying out his contract when he had a guarantee for payment for wrongful termination clause.
I'm guessing tossed out due to the bankruptcy superceding that, but that's probably all she wrote if the bankroller and commisiner are fighting. I though the backruptucy may have been a tactical decision to stop the bleeding they'd start again in 2021
The moment Vince announced he wanted to sell the XFL, I knew that starting again in 2021 wasn't going to happen. The WWE is suffering financially right now, and if the WWE isn't doing well, there is no XFL.
I agree that the suit will probably get thrown out due to bankruptcy. I would think that Luck could get something out of it though if Vince is successful in selling the league.
This may have been Vince's ace card all along...
Declaring bankruptcy and then buying the XFL back for cheap under a new parent company basically allows him to continue the XFL while getting out of paying his bills.
Vince is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers.
Vince didn't like the negative press he was getting from this, and has said he will not be bidding for the XFL.
Hopefully someone committed to it buys it.
How does any investor listen to Vince MacMahon about anything that isn't wrestling related again?
This league generated a lot of interest in some markets. It was sunk by COVID-19...
It was shut down for a little bit because of covid. He closed shop completely and that wasn't because of covid. He did it for the same reason Owen Hart died..... to save money.
Even Meltzer said it.
