    I’ve never heard of that. Isn’t he the president of WWE

    It was the company ties to NBC, who wanted back into football after losing the NFL contract, which got the diaster rolling. The league was supposed to start a year later, but the timeline was pushed up and it was an utter train wreck. Vinnie has failed in every business venture outside his late daddy’s company, but the XFL may be the worst of the worst.

    The XFL was a professional American football league that played for one season in 2001. The XFL was intended to be a major professional sports league complement to the offseason of the NFL, but failed to find an audience and folded after its first season. On April 21, 2001, the season concluded as the Los Angeles Xtreme defeated the San Francisco Demons 38-6 in the XFL Championship Game (which was originally given the Zen-like moniker “The Big Game at the End of the Season”, but was later dubbed the Million Dollar Game, after the amount of money awarded to the winning team).

    Though paid attendance at games remained respectable, if unimpressive (overall attendance were only 10% below what the league’s goal had been at the start of the season), the XFL ceased operations after just one season due to astonishingly low TV ratings. The NBC telecast of the Chicago/NY-NJ game on March 31 received a 1.5 rating, at that time the lowest ever for any major network primetime television broadcast in the United States. (On July 19, 2006, an episode of the reality game show The One: Making a Music Star broke the that record with only a 1.3 on ABC.)

    NBC itself attempted to win back the audience that it had lost when it lost the rights to air NFL games two years previously, which seems to have been the reason behind both its investment in and broadcasting of a new professional football league. But despite initially agreeing to broadcast XFL games for two years and owning half of the league, NBC announced it would not broadcast a second XFL season, thus admitting failure in their attempt at airing replacement pro football. WWF President Vince McMahon initially announced that the XFL would continue, as it still had UPN and TNN as broadcast outlets. However, in order to continue broadcasting XFL games, UPN demanded that WWF SmackDown! broadcasts be cut from two hours to one and a half hours. McMahon found these terms unacceptable and he announced the XFL’s closure on May 10, 2001.

    One reason for the failure of the league to catch on, despite its financial solvency and massive visibility (perhaps infamy), and perhaps epiphenomenal of its TV ratings, was the lack of respect for the league in the sports media. XFL games were never treated as sports events, but were regarded more as WWF-like sensationalism. Lacking any noteworthy exposition of talent, save Tommy Maddox, the league’s MVP, or thoughtful analysis or even consideration by sports columnists, the XFL never gained the necessary recognition to be regarded as a viable league. Most news teams refused to air clips or scores of XFL games. Most newspapers did not report the scores either. This led to many football fans treating the XFL as a joke, rather than competition.

    The XFL ranked #3 on TV Guide’s list of the worst TV shows of all time in July 2002.

    Vince started the XFL to make money. It wasn’t to compete with the NFL as the seasons were in different times of the year, but they thought they could make good money using players who were good college players, but not quite NFL material. The biggest reason it failed was the lack of support by ESPN and ABC. They wouldn’t show quality highlights and did everything they could to make the XFL look bad. Also, i think Vince overestimated the number of fans he would bring in for each game… He was trying to sell out major stadiums like the LA Colusiem instead of playing in smaller markets like the AFL does. And the final straw was NBC pulling their support after only 7 games, because the ratings weren’t what they expected. I think the XLF could have been a good league, far better than NFL Europe ever was, but you have to give it a few years to develop and not just quit after half a season.
