Vince McMahon announced that the XFL would be coming back in 2020 and he made a lot of different claims like how this will change the game of football. We didn’t have any specifics as he said everything was being looked into. But now we know at least one promise he’s already reportedly broken.
Brad Shepard reported on Oh, You Didn’t Know that WWE’s involvement in the upcoming rebirth of McMahon’s football league is actually way more involved than The Chairman Of The Board ever said in the beginning.
“When Vince McMahon first re-launched the XFL, which is a story I broke, by the way, he promised that it would be completely separate from WWE. I don’t know if you remember that conference call, but the promise was, yes this is totally separate. This is not WWE doing XFL in an intertwined company.”
“Well, I can now report that the XFL is all over WWE headquarters now. Several departments are directly involved with it and the idea of it being completely separate is now gone.”
It looks like WWE will be way more involved with the XFL than first thought. Whether it amounts to Michael Cole calling football games in the future is another story. But at least in the WWE offices, Shepard reports that several departments are getting prepared for the 2020 re-launch of the XFL.
