The XFL has experienced a sudden drop in bankruptcy, and a new report from The Athletic suggests that Vince McMahon may be trying to buy the league out of Delaware bankruptcy court.

Speaking to various XFL creditors and sources, Daniel Kaplan noted that XFL president Jeffrey Pollack had called locations in St. Louis and Seattle to reinstate the rental agreements. After its launch in February, the XFL only lasted five weeks before closing due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Since then, the league has closed surprisingly for good and filed for Chapter 11 in mid-April.

According to the report, however, some team officials believe that McMahon may have played on purpose to try to overcome the pandemic and subsequent economic turmoil without having to pay to operate the league. It remains to be seen if McMahon actually plans to restore the league after the COVID-19 epidemic is over, but this is probably not the last time we will hear about XFL in the months to come.
