The Vikings still have a lot on the line with an 11-3 record, as Minnesota is just one game behind the Eagles in the race for home-field advantage in the NFC.
McMahon has also secured previously abandoned XFL trademarks and the WWE hasn’t denied the failed professional football league returning.
A report Friday night on Twitter said an announcement about bringing back the XFL may come next month.
Based on a conversation between McMahon and XFL co-founder Dick Ebersol that aired as part of ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary about the league, rumors about a potential revival do not come as a complete shock.
“Do you ever have any thoughts about trying again?” Ebersol asked McMahon (via Pro Football Talk).
“Yes I do,” McMahon responded. “I don’t know what it would be. I don’t know if it’s gonna be another XFL or what it may be or how different I would make it. It seems like in some way it would tie in either with the NFL itself or the owners.”
According to ESPN, WWE and its broadcast partner NBC lost approximately $35 million each on the league.
“‘You’re new. You’re pretty. You’ll be targeted. Be careful,’” McParland said Cantor told her when she began working at the network. “She was very clear that she didn’t doubt my professionalism, but that some of the talent were exceptionally aggressive and inappropriate when it came to sexual behavior in the workplace.”
McParland claims Irvin inappropriately grabbed her waist on the set of “NFL Gameday.”
It’s not the first serious allegation made against Irvin this year. He was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a 27-year-old woman in March in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., but after the police investigated the incident and handed it over to Broward County, the district attorney’s office decided not to charge Irvin citing a lack of evidence.
