McMahon files for five new XFL trademarks, report says

According to Darren Rovell, the WWE recently filed for the "He Hate Me" trademark, which was abandoned by XFL player Rod Smart in 2011, which also hints that an XFL resurgence is in the works.

McMahon is clearly committed to trying his hand at the XFL again and may be doing so with the intention of taking advantage of the NFL's low ratings.

The XFL also tried to combine the WWE and National Football League, with mixed results.

There had already been plenty of smoke around McMahon wanting to reboot the XFL, which crashed and burned after one season in 2001.

Yesterday, the WWE chairman took a step closer towards bringing back the XFL, as he sold 3,340,000 shares of WWE stock by to help fund his new Alpha Entertainment company.

WWE released the following report today informing stockholders that McMahon has no intention of selling any more stock and will continue as the company's Chairman and CEO.

With the National Football League being at a crossroads with multiple controversies that have turned fans away from the sport, a report surfaced last week that Vince McMahon might be trying to revive the XFL.

On Thursday, McMahon sold 3.34 million shares of WWE, which is worth $100 million.

The shares sold by Mr. McMahon represent approximately 4.3% of the Company's total outstanding shares of Class A and Class B common stock. "After the sale, Mr. McMahon beneficially owns 32,193,375 shares of the Company's Class B common stock, which represents approximately 82.8% of the Company's total voting power and approximately 41.8% of the Company's total outstanding shares of common stock". And they aren't the only ones being used to try to identify a professional football league under Alpha, as McMahon and Co. are also seeking the rights to "URFL", per Rovell.
