Default Why do people ignore The XFL situation?

People remember Austin's Heel turn and WCW buyout/end as the downfall of WWF product but you need to remember, XFL did damage too, I believe it was huge damage(WWF/Vince tried so hard promoting it, spent alot of money), anyone have statistics on how bad this was, surely hurt WWF product and the business as well as Austin Heel turn and WCW buyout.

It was 50M bad, to be exact. The only people ignoring it seem to be working for WWE.

I don't think it gets ignored at all... however it is largely irrelevant to most topics discussed around here so it isn't exactly brought up much.

Only time I mention the XFL is when a thread pops up mentioning Vince is gonna tackle another market that he has no right trying to get involved in - then I'll say "didn't he learn from his crappy body building federation, the XFL or his profitless movies he keeps making?".

Other than that, I'm not the man's accountant so I'm not inclined to remember the XFL otherwise.

Vince invested a lot of time in that and actually neglected the WWF at that time.

I dont think the XFL did any damage to the WWE product. They were two seperate things

Actually the movies are making a decent profit now. They make more in the Rental markets and DVD sales. All movie studios have a ton of flops...

See No Evil made about $7 Million
The Call made $40 Million
12 Rounds made about $5 Million
The Marine made about $35 Million

You've missed the point. The OP means that when people discuss the turning point of the WWF output becoming less exciting - namely, after the peak of WrestleMania XVII and then the failed Invasion storyline - why do they neglect to consider the distraction of the XFL as a factor?

The money spent would not have had any effect on their ability to write good TV and effectively utilize the roster they had, arguably the best individual roster in wrestling history to that point. The roster that won the Monday Night War PLUS an influx of fresh talent from WCW, and the newly-arrived Rob Van Dam.

You're doing the writing team a great disservice. Vince doesn't do it all by himself.

It pains me to think that money could've been used to buy out all the contracts of the top guys in WCW and have a proper Invasion...

That's where you are totally wrong. To say that that catastrophic failure didn't change Vince in some shape or form for the worst is naive. He became steadily less ballsy with his business moves after the fact.
