The XFL is coming back in 2020. Vince McMahon might have promised to keep WWE and his relaunching football league separate, but it’s just too hard to pass up a good cross-promotional opportunity.
During Friday Night SmackDown this week in Brooklyn, they plugged the XFL in a big way. Fans reported that WWE showed a number of New York Guardians commercials on the big screen. Then they set up a contest for tickets as Brad Shepard explained.
I’m told in the arena at #WWE #SmackDown tonight they just showed a number of @XFLGuardians advertisements on the tron and the ring announcer did a promo on it with a contest for tickets. There’s also a booth set up in the arena too.
The XFL is coming back in 2020 so we might see more cross-over activity. We’re not sure if the XFL is paying WWE for the plugs, but it’s logical to assume they might get a discount since both companies are owned by Vince McMahon.
