The XFL is absolutely annihilating other pro sports teams in their respective local markets.

According to Fox Sports’ Michael Mulvihill, the XFL is absolutely crushing all other sports rating in their local markets. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The only pro sports team with better ratings in their local market than the XFL team in the city is the Lakers.

I feel like a broken record at this point, but the success of the XFL through two weeks is nothing short of shocking.

The league is selling tickets, people are tuning in on TV and the ratings are beating out the NHL and NBA.

Anybody who claims they new the XFL would be off to this hot a start is a liar.

It just goes to show how much people in America care about football. We can’t get enough. Some people said a spring league would never surprise.

Clearly, those people jumped the gun or vastly underestimated the passion for the sport in this country.

If the XFL continues to beat out two established pro sports leagues, then there’s no doubt at all they’re going to be here for the long haul.

Can’t wait to see how much more successful it can become!
