Randy Ambrosie won’t get in the squared circle with Vince McMahon.
“Well I was just glad that he didn’t announce that he wanted to wrestle against me because I would’ve had to turn that down…there was a bit of relief there for me,” the CFL commissioner told TSN 690 in Montreal.
Ambrosie is, however, going to monitor what the XFL does as the league works towards its 2020 launch.
“We’re going to watch. He obviously has a tremendous reputation. I’m quite sure his access to capital is quite spectacular. But their first go round lasted one year, we’re going to have our 106th Grey Cup in Edmonton this year. I will keep an eye out for further developments as they happen,” Ambrosie said.
McMahon sold 3.34 million shares of WWE, worth approximately $100 million, late last year preparing for a second XFL run. The XFL will launch with eight teams, owned by the league, 40-man active rosters and a 10-week regular-season schedule that may or may not overlap with the CFL regular season.
Either way, Ambrosie is watching McMahon from outside the ropes.
