Vince McMahon SELLING WWE To Restart XFL?! | WrestleTalk News Jan. 2018


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis… WHAT YEAR IS IT?!
…and a very belated happy birthday to Pat Patterson for last Friday. Not that timing matters, as Vince McMahon
showed in his birthday wish to his best friend forever:
“Wishing a very happy 80th birthday to my longtime friend and @WWE’s first Intercontinental
Champion, Pat Patterson!” The problem with McMahon’s well-wish is
that Patterson isn’t 80, as WrestleZone’s Nick Hausman pointed out, quoting Chapter
1’s first line from Pat’s book: “I was born January 19, 1941…” Making Patterson 77 years old last Friday. Which reminds me… WHAT DAY IS IT?! …what day is it? Move aside generic smartphone calendar app! WWE.com… Is today Rusev Day? Yes. Submit. WHAT? 23% SAID IT ISN’T? Don’t you even Rusev Day, bros? Hopefully Vince wishing 77-year-old Pat a
happy 80th birthday was just a rib, and not a sign of declining mental faculties. Because you’ll want your wits about you
if you’re selling your multi-billion dollar company and starting your own football league. Vince McMahon Selling WWE? It was first reported last month that Vince
was planning to relaunch the XFL – his failed NFL alternative that only ran for one season
back in 2001. It’s considered to be McMahon’s biggest
business failure, supposedly costing the company $70 million. A WWE spokesperson issued a statement in response,
revealing Vince was personally funding a new company called Alpha Entertainment “to explore
investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscapes, including football.” This new company then filed five different
trademarks of ‘XFL’, and then Vince reportedly sold about $100 million worth of WWE shares
– which many are speculating is to fund the revived football league. In Brad Shepard’s original report breaking
the XFL News, he tweeted McMahon “may announce it on January 25th, 2018. That is, of course, today. With an announcement possibly pending, Sports
Illustrated are reporting Vince’s WWE future was a much-talked about topic backstage at
Monday’s 25th Anniversary episode of Raw – and how he might sell the company all together. Justin Barrasso writes “The Fox Entertainment
Group is interested in purchasing WWE, which should come as no surprise because WWE programming
is so valuable.” Fox owner Rupert Murdoch has a fair bit of
spending money after Disney bought the bulk of 21st Century Fox from him last month for
$52.4 billion, and they would possibly be looking to put WWE programming on their Fox
Network channels. WWE’s TV rights deal with the USA Network
expires next year. Sports Illustrated add that WWE is “adding
no new major expenses”, which could mean they’re positioning themselves for a sale. HEEL KICK! Wrestling Movie Out Now
