Bruce Prichard discussed a recent Something to Wrestle With the rumors in 1998 that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had interest in buying the Minnesota Vikings Prichard looked back on the Vikings were entertaining offers for sale and word got out that McMahon was interested.

“We didn’t know what the hell he was talking about,” Prichard said of McMahon’s interest (per Wrestling Inc). “More than anything it was a publicity stunt because they were floating out there that the Vikings were up for sale and Vince floated it out there that he was interested in it. I dare say that if the price would have been right he might have bought the damn thing for publicity purposes to make it — okay the WWF just bought the Minnesota Vikings and Vince McMahon is now entering the football arena. So it worked, it got people talking.”
