As we all know, XFL may be revitalized soon, and we all know that the WWE programming television deal with NBCUniversal expires soon. We have read of an executive at WWE even imply that WWE may already be in negotiations with other networks or will be able to very shortly. One idea that may make sense is that WWE and Alpha will try to package deal Raw, SmackDown, NXT, 205, XFL on one network, and since Spike (Paramount) has done wrestling a couple of times, and has done UFC, then this could be there way in. I mention NXT because they are at a point where they could air on television.

Would it be reasonable to assume that NBCUniversal no longer wants WWE on their networks?

Also, keep in mind that in Canada, WWE has exclusivity with SportsNet360 which would be enticing for WWE and Alpha to offer XFL programming to SN360.

Basically, XFL is coming to Canada, not just the U.S

Sportsnet 360 exclusivity in Canada, and Spike (Paramount) exclusivity for XFL, WWE programming in the U.S?

Would they really take 205 Live and NXT away from being WWE Network exclusive shows?

Is the NFL a big thing in Canada? If so then I guess you might as well air it in Canada along with the US in hope of success, if the NFL isn't too popular in Canada then the XFL V2 won't just be a flop but a disaster of epic proportions.
