he's one of their top stars.  13 time World Champion in WWE.  He has been criticized at times as not putting in 100% effort in the ring. 

It's not like they're called "The Randy Ortons" lol. So they're not named after him, but his moniker is transferrable to a sports mascot.

A team nicknamed the Warriors CONFIRMED!

This is just a friendly reminder about the kind of guy Jim Hellwig was before WWE and his estate whitewashed him.

And he's important enough to name a football team after him?

 

Probably not actually important enough, but I could see somebody taking inspiration from that. Similarly, I've been joking for a while that Seattle will be the Dragons after famous wrestler Daniel Bryan's indie nickname of the American Dragon.

WWE had a pro-LBTQ+ thing recently that co-opted the Warrior gimmick. On the one hand it feels kind of insulting to use somebody who had such heinous views, but it's also kind of fun that somebody like that had their trademark image used for something they would have hated so much. With WWE I assume it was an embarrassing case of misguided pandering, but hopefully it was expert trolling.

Well, I would show the image from Warrior’s comic where he violated Santa, but I think it violates forum rules. Rumors of a few gay encounters have surfaced over the years about Hellwig, so perhaps he was overcompensating?

 

Either way, I do enjoy the trolling of a pro-LGBTQ Warrior. I don’t enjoy the whitewashing or the burying (like WWE tried during the mid-00s), but rather I prefer the honest depiction of him as an insane, homophobic, and difficult dick with excellent organizational timing (the cartoony WWF and the “pay them everything” WCW) and good branding sense.

The WWE's claim has been "the views of the Warrior do not reflect the views of his wife" which is why they have been so friendly with his wife. 

 

On the one hand, they have been known to kiss the butt of a guy who is said to be extremely nice and cool (The Rock, but every movie studio kisses his butt pretty much so I will defend WWE in that case) and on the other hand, they have been kissing Hulk Hogan's butt.

I 100% hope I’m wrong and the XFL has nailed it.  With the rumor of a “Vipers” team and several teases here, you can consider me nervous.  I want this league to long-lasting and successful.

 

What's wrong with Vipers?

The good news for the XFL is that it's an outdoor league and not one of the 500 indoor leagues in existence right now.

Vipers all but confirmed, gargoyles, some sort of jet, bikers of some sort, and military. Can't tell what the others are.

Is laziness just part of the character that was scripted for him?

Nada. Alleged RL attitude problems that seem viable when you watch some of his stuff.

That flame shooting out looks like it could be a refinery. I'm thinking Houston.

 

The swamp towards the end looks like that could be Tampa.

 

The wing on the tattoo looks like it could be LA.

I deal with athletic team branding every single day, and in my professional opinion, the only AAF logo & color scheme that was marginally acceptable was San Diego’s.  The rest were a debacle, not even on the level of many MiLB branding, and part of the reason the league didn’t catch fire.

Far be it for me to disagree with a "professional," but I find that to be a remarkably bad take.

This could be WWE's corporate slogan, really :P

Obviously having a team named after snakes is a death sentence for any league 🙃

That doesn't seem to stop MLB from using snakes for its Arizona franchise.

 

Besides, what's wrong with snake names?

I was joking. Obviously there's nothing wrong with the name Vipers. I was making fun of the guy who thinks the name is a problem.

See above.

 

I thought the 🙃 emoji was the universal sign of sarcasm.

I'm thinking Vipers is St Louis.... then there's only one reason why.

It would be hilarious if, after the song and dance about the new XFL not having anything to do with WWE this time around, Vince just named all the teams after wrestlers.

Vince McMahon doesn't do anything part-time. He'll micromanage this thing into the grave like he did the first one.
