• Jim Ross On Why Vince McMahon Is Bringing Back XFL
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross had the following to say regarding Vince McMahon bringing the XFL back in 2020:
“He loves taking calculated risks. I had the first meeting with him after the first XFL went down, and I think we lost 50 million or something like that. We had a regular meeting and we talked about the XFL for a minute or two. He said ‘JR I took a calculated risk and it didn’t go down. I still believe in the concept.’
I don’t have an issue with the concept. I don’t know if he’s bored or he just loves the challenge. I know that was a challenge that went unfulfilled, didn’t succeed at it, and maybe there’s something to be said about his competitive nature. I can tell you that he sees something that is different than the last go-round. It should be exciting as it progresses.”
