Vince McMahon announces return of the XFL

DUaX7XAWsAAYFc4

Every city is on the radar. "Not reinvent", he said in an interview last week. He hasn't played a football game since the end of the 2015 NFL season.

"You want someone who doesn't have anything criminally associated with them", McMahon said in a conference call with national media. He also claimed the league would remain apolitical, but when pressed acknowledged that players standing for the national anthem would likely be a part of the rulebook. McMahon's wife, Linda, serves as the administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration for Trump.

Trump has hosted wrestling events at his properties and has been involved in the showmanship, once shaving McMahon's head in the middle of a ring.

McMahon said he made a decision to go with the XFL name even though his new league won't provide the same gimmicks that were both a hallmark and a black mark on the original league.

"The new XFL will be fan-centric with all the things you like to see and less of the things you don't", McMahon explained.

"Democrat, Republican, Independent, I don't care, and no one should", said McMahon. When the Xtreme played at the Coliseum in 2001, the area had been without professional outdoor football since 1994, and the USC and UCLA programs were mediocre at best.

McMahon and the XFL have yet to make any sort of official statement regarding Manziel's eligibility. This time around, McMahon emphasized that WWE would have no involvement in the new league, and that he is funding the $100 million startup funds out of his own pocket. "We're going to listen to football experts and we're going to listen to what the fans want more than anyone else".

As for the actual details of the league, only the outline is visible.


Vince says the league will launch with 8 teams - 40-man rosters - and nobody with a criminal background will be eligible to play. Teams will play a ten game schedule and there will be two rounds of playoffs. McMahon said he's not sure about that yet, but he'll be listening to fans to see what they want.

This time, McMahon is promoting games that will be "shorter, faster-paced, family friendly and easier to understand".

- Vince says they are open to all broadcasting options or a combination of options.

The XFL postseason will have two semifinal games and a championship game.

WWE chairman Vince McMahon confirmed on Thursday that his long-lost football league, the short-lived XFL, is scheduled for a 2020 return.

Some of the original XFL's biggest successes came from the way it produced games on television, specifically its use of Skycam and on-field cameras - innovations that became staples of NFL TV productions in the years after the XFL folded.

The old XFL needed to be popular enough to justify broadcasts on NBC, but the advent of companies that stream sports digitally means the XFL might find a deal more suited to its size.

A DESIRE THAT NEVER LEFT: McMahon said he has been thinking about relaunching the XFL since '01, when he reluctantly shut down the league's first version.
