HE HATE ME has to be the commissioner.
It all started with a random tweet from THE Brad Shepard, no one knew who he was, so Deadspin reached out to the WWE and they didn’t deny it.
A WWE spokesperson issued the attached statement to me & @Deadspin in response to my inquiry about tonight's rumors of a soon to be announced XFL revival. They declined further comment. Whatever Vince McMahon's "Alpha Entertainment" is, it's self-funded & separate from WWE. pic.twitter.com/oT0Oxyi2fV

The XFL was ahead of its time and the NFL frankly has stolen a lot of their ideas. There wasn’t much of any social media around back then, I think most of us were on dial up in 2001.
But, if there was ever a league that was built for social media it would be the XFL, especially if they did it in the summer where people are dying to find things to talk about.
I hope it comes back.
