    Depends on if and how much McMahon can reimburse the networks when they start paying make goods to the advertisers. In the intervening years since the last iteration his main brand just got more valuable: it saved the CW as UPN had no good shows but nothing on the WB beat wrestling, watched two of its biggest stars become bankable film actors, and saved a non-fake championship fighter near the peak of her fame from an impending breakdown in Rousey.

    anybody want to take a guess of the team name before the 1130am scheduled announcement?

    They released a teaser view with clues but I couldn't make out anything

    I don't guess there is any way to really do a name/logo that's original and exciting. How many millions of them have been done for Fantasy Football. The Guardians is the coolest of the lame, OC the lamest.

    I like the name Guardians and the Battle Hawks logo (though I don't like their name with it).

    The DC Defenders with a damn soccer team name and logo.

    Well see, that's just an illegible font.

    If they don’t draft JM2, I’m not watching this garbage ****.

    I was a fan of the Memphis maniax, they will forever hold my loyalty.
