We know reboots are all the rage lately, and even though there were hints about this one, it’s still a shocker.
After selling 3.34 million shares (about $100 million worth) of WWE stock last month and establishing a new venture called Alpha Entertainment, Vince McMahon is set to announce the relaunch of the infamous XFL. First reported by PWinsider.com, the XFL would be making its triumphant return in 2020.
The football league was highlighted by ESPN last year as part of their outstanding 30 for 30 series, and while the retrospective received glowing reviews by critics and fans alike, we’re not exactly sure that equates to fans actually wanting the XFL back.
Considering McMahon and NBC reportedly lost around $35 million each during the first incarnation of the XFL and the money he is investing now, we can’t help be feel nervous about everything. Frankly, there are a lot of feelings about this entire situation. To help, here are ten GIFs that break all the feels.
When McMahon first sold all of those WWE shares last month.
When the XFL news broke today.
Our feelings after the shock of the news initially wore off.
Thinking about all the money that’s on the line.
Thinking about who the new “He Hate Me” will be, but then remembering just how painful the XFL games were to watch.
Thinking about how excited McMahon is about all this press and then him reading any given comment section.
Realizing McMahon has walked the line of brilliance and insanity for decades and is going to do whatever the hell he wants until the day he dies.
Realizing, “Who am I kidding? Of course I’m going to watch this potential sh*tshow, because I’m the strangest type of masochist ever.”
