After refiling the XFL trademark last summer, as well as more trademarks in late-2017, there is no question that Vince McMahon has interest in a new football project. Whether it will be a revival of the XFL, the XFL being a part of the WWE Network, or XFL film being a part of a launch of another league, is still unknown. There are rumors that Vince might make an announcement regarding the XFL's future during the 25th Anniversary of Raw broadcast on January 23rd or on January 25th. Vince also has started a company outside of the WWE, Alpha Entertainment, LLC. that is being/going to be funded by the $100 million worth of stock Vince recently sold. According to a WWE Spokesperson, this company is looking to venture into investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscapes, including pro football. Again, other than what's already been reported Vince McMahon has kept silent about what the plans are. Now that you're all caught up on what's going on, or at least as much as we know thus far, you have to wonder if this MIGHT lead to Vince McMahon gradually stepping aside as WWE CEO in order to focus his time and energy on this new venture. As everyone knows, Vince McMahon is extremely hands on when it comes to pretty much anything he's involved with, the man's a control freak of legendary stature. As a result, depending on what his goals are, you have to think he's going to want to devote as much time and energy to make sure the XFL, Alpha Entertainment and whatever it ultimately is that he's got cooking doesn't lay another goose egg. This doesn't mean or remotely suggest that Vince is just gonna say "I'm out" to WWE but, as I suggested, it might be part of a gradual process in which he extricates himself from his position; however, this all revolves around exactly what he has planned, when he intends to implement it and how successful it is. After all, when you really think about it, Vince isn't the type of person who "retires" and just sits on the porch in his rocking chair watching the sunset; in some way, shape or form, Vince will have something to do with WWE 'til the day he dies but if he's no longer CEO, it means he no longer legally calls the shots, especially when it comes to the creative aspects of WWE, no matter how many shares of stock he owns.
