WWE’s senior vice president of special events John Saboor contacted Orlando’s executive director of venues about the prospect of putting a team in Camping World Stadium.

It’s worth noting that Vince McMahon initially claimed WWE and XFL would be separate entities, but clearly that’s not the case if WWE employees are working on the new league.

Is this for real, fake news, or just having fun? What do your sources say?

Sources around the XFL say the league wants to 'fast track" to begin their season in 2019 instead of 2020. If true, this would be a treat for football fans in Orlando with both the XFL and Alliance of American Football starting at the same time. And Spurrier and Glanville here..

*edit to add "is this for real" possibilty :shock: :o :?

Just fun I hope. Speeding the process up would hurt the XFL.
AAF all south teams. XFL all north teams? :o

Memphis is city #3 for the AAF. They didn't get as far west as some were thinking :D

2 out of 3 cities are former XFL cities.

Singletary now joins Steve Spurrier (Orlando) and Brad Childress (Atlanta) as other official Alliance head coaching hires. A source told Sporting News that Mike Martz (Southern California), Rick Neuheisel (Phoenix) and Jim Mora (Salt Lake City) are three other expected additions that will be announced in the coming weeks.

A league spokesman told Sporting News that “those names/cities aren’t confirmed so at this point would just be speculation."

The Memphis squad will play its games at the Liberty Bowl. Kosha Irby, a former WWE marketing executive, was named team president.

Hearing that the Alliance of Amrtican Football wants to put a team in Tulsa and will approach former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops about coaching the team. Sources close to the situation tell me Stoops is "all ears and is dying to get back into coaching at any level without moving"..
