Bruce Prichard Talks About XFL’s Original Launch In 2001

The relaunch of XFL started on Saturday, February 8th. So far the league and its games has received positive feedback.

While the XFL relaunch seems to be a success, it’s original launch in 2001 was considered a flop. 

During a recent episode of his podcast, Bruce Prichard talks about XFL’s disastrous launch in 2001. 

Here’s what he had to say: 

"We were you know, we were we were in the forefront and WrestleMania was in front of us,"he continued. "And on the wrestling side of things, that's what we were focusing on, and in the middle of it, we got thrown the monkey wrench with, oh, by the way, we need to go down to Panama City and produce the last Nitro. 'Oh, shit. Okay.' And by the way, we've got WrestleMania coming up. And in the middle of getting to the biggest show of the year, you have all this other shit going on. The XFL, for us, was [a mindset of] get them through their big game at the end of the year and we'll see what happens at the end. You'll let us know. But I don't know that anybody was that dug in on the XFL from our side, especially like myself, Michael Hayes, and Brian Gewirtz, who had experienced it firsthand. We were like, 'thank you, God! Get us out.'"
