Oh man I hadn't even thought about that. Vince really is cursed when it comes to football.

Man, so many fans and sports pundits heaped praise on this version of the XFL. 

Covid19 couldn't stop Wrestlemania but it stomped VKM's latest pigskin run.

How old would Vince be then? 95?

I wonder how much Vince lost over the revival of the XFL.

 

The guy should have just bought an NFL team instead. Shit.

I feel a little bad for vince. If it was going to fail I would have preferred seeing Vince go down with a fair fight.

They aren’t the only sports league/franchise that will disappear because of COVID.

Vince is going to have some explaining to do considering he claimed that WWE had no financial stake in XFL

I hope Vince and wwe get sued to oblivion if this is true. Unless this is already being handled in that other lawsuit I recall reading about
