WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon sold 3.2 million shares of WWE stock on Wednesday, according to SeekingAlpha.com. The story states that McMahon sold the stock mainly to fund Alpha Entertainment, parent company of the XFL, and that he has no plans to sell additional shares.

Vince better have one hell of a streaming or television deal in the works because it’s hard to see how the XFL wouldn’t meet a similar fate without a major revenue stream.
