Former WWE broadcaster and ESPN host, Jonathan Coachman, believes it is likely Vince McMahon is looking at buying an NFL team. According to Coachman, he thinks it’s possible the 72-year-old Chairman of WWE might be looking at purchasing the Carolina Panthers.
On reasons to believe Vince isn’t bringing back the XFL:
“He’s not going to come out and blow 50 or 100 million on something he’s already tried…”
On Calling Games for the XFL:
“If he calls me, cause I’m the only person in the history of the world to be the voice of Monday Night Raw and to be on Sports Center for 10 years so if Vince calls for somebody who knows both sides of the fence you’re damn right I’m going to pick up the phone.”
On Vince possibly buying the Carolina Panthers
“He’s got a restaurant in North Carolina, hell Triple H‘s bachelor party was in Raleigh, North Carolina…
“I’m not saying that he would but I think it’s a second possibility that people aren’t tossing out there because they want to believe that he’ll start his own entity.”
