Vince McMahon Reason for Reviving XFL Revealed in Lawsuit Filing

Sports reporter Darren Rovell in a series of tweets today hinted at the catalyst for what potentially motivated Vince McMahon to relaunch the XFL, which is slated to make its return in 2020. Some new information on the XFL was revealed in a lawsuit filed against the Alliance of American Football (AAF) and Charlie Ebersol by Robert Vanech. Vanech is saying it was his idea to come up with the AAF and is entitled to 50 percent ownership. Vanech is claiming that many of his ideas for the league are being credited to others.
The lawsuit filing stated that the original plan for the AAF was to use the XFL name and purchase all the XFL assets from WWE and NBC for $50 million. The AAF officials met with Vince McMahon, and then he simply decided to ultimately restart the XFL on his own rather than take the deal.
Charlie Ebersol is the son of former NBC Sports Executive Dick Ebersol, and he also directed the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary on the XFL. You can also check out Rovell’s tweets on the situation below.
