The XFL may be making a comeback

Recommended Posts

I know he’d have less control, but wouldn’t it be more profitable if Vince McMahon (with an investment group) bought the Carolina Panthers instead?

Vince grew up in North Carolina and obviously has always had a major bone for pro football. Owing the Panthers would be a legit fit, assuming he'd get the actual "OK" from current owners.

 

 

Wouldn't bet on it though.

Has anyone else besides Sean Combs come out and express interest in buying the team?

The Panthers will sell for $2B.  Vince doesn't have that kind of money.  I"d love to see it happen though - especially if Charlotte resident Ric Flair could be involved some how.

 

Forbes had WWE valued at $1.5 billion in summer of 2016, right around the sale of UFC for $4 billion, though not only is the article a year-and-a-half old, but it also mentions that WWE could potentially be under-valued at that price. So if Vince plays his cards right, he and an investment group could scrape enough money together to actually pull it off.

Keep this in mind. Jerry Richardson personally owns only 48%, 14 others own the other 52% including his wife, son and daughter.  Other billionaires within the ownership group include two members of the Belk Department Stores family who sold their department store for $3B in 2015, Leon Levine, the founder of the Family Dollar store chain, and two commercial real estate guys: Smoky Bissell, who sold a Charlotte area business park this year for $1.2B and Johnny Harris, who also owns the Quail Hollow Golf Club, which held this year's PGA Championship.

Has there been any more news on Vinnie Mac's XFL 2.0 project?

 

While we're at it, what type of audience is he trying to aim for the second time around?

I recently read somewhere (sorry no link) that it’s not likely to be called xfl, and possibly something like UFL or UDFL. 

 

Edit:

according to WhatCulture, Vince filed for trademarks for “UFL” and “URFL”, not uDfl

What do you suppose the R in URFL is supposed to stand for?

UFL/URFL = YOUR Football League ... like it's about YOU the fans, and not politics and other NFL stuff I guess... 

 

That's the way I have interpreted it.

Regional? Possibly doing a regional draft to stock teams since he may expect that to bring in fans to certain teams.

I'm fairly certain URFL would be pronounced "awful."

Yup. And I'm sure whatever the league is named, it'll only spark a renaissance for the NFL.

"UFL" Perhaps Ultimate Football League?

 

That would be a nice possibility.

I know you are kidding but with the Universal championship and the "WWE Universe" and "NXT universe"...ect, ect. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised at all if that ends up being the name.
