We had some MAJOR football news break on Twitter while you guys were out drinking last night. This guy Brad Shephard, who I’m not sure is even a reporter and is only rocking with 3700 Twitter followers, casually threw this report out to the Twitter masses that has me feeling like a kid on Christmas morning.

The XFL may be coming back.

EXCLUSIVE: Vince McMahon is looking to bring back the XFL and may announce it on January 25th, 2018.

Again, who knows if we can believe anything this guy is saying. I’m still not even sure who he works for or what he does, so he might just be out here throwing shit against the wall.

But then we had more people come out later last night, like legitimate reporters, who reached out to the WWE about this and actually got a response.

A WWE spokesperson issued the attached statement to me & @Deadspin in response to my inquiry about tonight's rumors of a soon to be announced XFL revival. They declined further comment. Whatever Vince McMahon's "Alpha Entertainment" is, it's self-funded & separate from WWE.

Worth noting that the Alpha Entertainment statement came in response to me asking WWE to "confirm or deny" the XFL relaunch rumor.

In what IÔÇÖm sure is a complete coincidence, WWE filed for two new XFL trademarks this year, both long after the 30 for 30 premiered.

And now we’re officially cooking with gas. They didn’t┬áconfirm or deny anything and Vince has a separate company┬áready to roll. This sounds┬álike┬áa thing that could actually happen and the internet is going to lose its mind. Maybe Vince McMahon saw how well received that XFL 30 For 30 was, along with all the shit and controversy the NFL is constantly dealing with and decided it’s time to bring back the nonstop entertainment that was the XFL.

Just imagine how incredible this could be with social media. So many possibilities. Vince, give the people what they want.
