• Vince McMahon Looking To Use WWE Money For Additional XFL Funding, People In WWE Concerned
XFL will relaunch next year and Vince McMahon is looking to make it a success this time.
According to Brad Shepard, Vince McMahon is looking to use WWE money for additional XFL funding, leaving some people in WWE concerned:
“According to a source in the company, Vince McMahon wants to dabble into WWE money (not personal stock) to provide additional funding for the XFL, leaving some concern internally about how that may impact the company’s finances.”
This isn’t surprising at all as WWE has a ton of money at the moment (with $2 Billion+ coming from TV deals for RAW & SmackDown and Saudi Arabia also paying them a lot of money for their partnership).
