In an update to this, XFL (owned by WWE CEO Vince McMahon’s Alpha Entertainment) has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Below is what Eric Fisher of SportBusiness Group is reporting about this:
“The XFL has gone down, and gone down hard – today there was a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in Delaware.
Assets/liabilities both listed in $10-50m range. Lot of pain out there in a lot of different places, but this is still such a sweeping turn of events from where they were…
Vince McMahon had 100 pct of the XFL’s Class A shares. He also had 76.5% of the Class B shares, with WWE holding the rest.”
