With the XFL relaunching in 2020, Bruce Prichard recently spent some time talking about an interesting Vince McMahon football story during an episode of his Something To Wrestle With podcast.
Prichard recalled the time McMahon nearly purchased the NFL's Minnesota Vikings franchise, coincidentally enough, a little over a year before he would go on to launch the XFL for the first time.
"We didn't know what the hell he was talking about," Bruce Prichard said during a recent episode of his show. "More than anything it was a publicity stunt because they were floating out there that the Vikings were up for sale and Vince floated it out there that he was interested in it."
Prichard continued, "I dare say that if the price would have been right he might have bought the damn thing for publicity purposes to make it -- okay the WWF just bought the Minnesota Vikings and Vince McMahon is now entering the football arena. So it worked, it got people talking."
