The XFL is dead…again. 

According to Darren Rovell of Action Network, the XFL, owned by Vince McMahon’s Alpha Entertainment, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday. The league’s estimated assets/liabilities are said to be somewhere in the $10-50 million range. 

The filing also revealed that WWE did in fact own a portion of the league. WWE was listed in control of approximately 23.5 percent of Class B shares with the rest held by McMahon. 

Creditors mentioned in the filing include Dallas Renegades head coach and general manager Bob Stoops ($1.083 million), Tampa Bay Vipers head coach and general manager Marc Trestman ($777,777), Ticketmaster ($655,148), St. Louis Battlehawks head coach and general manager Jonathan Hayes ($633,333), other coaches ($583,333 each) and MetLife Stadium lease ($368,000). 

The filing comes just days after XFL COO Jeffrey Pollack informed employees the league was suspending operations and all employees had been laid off.  

The Seattle Dragons went 1-4 and drew an XFL record 29,172 fans at the team’s home opener at CenturyLink Field in Week 2.

Dragons president Ryan Gustafson delivered this message to fans days before the league shuttered. 

This was McMahon’s second attempt at developing a professional football league after the XFL folded in 2001 due to low viewership. 

XFL 2020, what a ride.
