Mini Film Review – This Was The XFL

An incredible documentary about possibly the most interesting adaptation of one of the most popular sports in the world. Part of the 30 for 30 series: This Was The XFL tells the story about the creation, foundation, production, hype, history and the ultimate closure of the attempt of two men to create something to rival the NFL. The XFL was an alternative football league founded by two powerhouses of the entertainment industry; NBC Sports executive Dick Ebersol and WWE owner Vince McMahon. The documentary explained in great detail the successes and failure’s as well as the entertainment and the controversy that surrounded the league. Altogether it is very entertaining, but also very educational, and not only showed what were some of the issues, but also some of the more appealing assets that it had over the NFL, and whose legacy still lives on today. Well worth a look out, and watch for.
