Vince McMahon Announces The XFL Will Return In 2020

Vince McMahon Announces The XFL Will Return In 2020

Teams will consist of 40-player rosters and will compete in a 10-week regular season. They want quality humans as well as quality players. Many players in the NFL have criminal records and commit crimes while participating in the league.

"I think, it's a time-honored tradition to stand and appreciate the national anthem for any sport here in America, for that matter in any country", McMahon said.

For those wondering, McMahon said he was unsure whether or not player nicknames will be allowed on the back of uniforms, as they were during the XFL's first run. When asked how the league would deal with the issue of concussions, McMahon said, "Reimagining the game of football means reimagining it on all levels", and said one of the goals of the league would be to "Make it as safe as possible". The first thing McMahon said was that the "new" XFL will looks to "give the game of football back to fans". "This is 2020. We've got time to draft good players and be able to put really good football on the field". He even said he would take a backseat to hired experts in running the league. During its inception, the XFL sold itself as a "no-holds-barred" league that encouraged hard hitting. "Mr. McMahon has nothing further to announce at this time", WWE said in a statement back on December 16, 2017.

As for which cities will actually take part in the XFL, the press release said the selection of cities will take place over the coming months, and a mix of major and mid-major markets in all regions of the US are possibilities.

McMahon's WWE Properties International and NBC co-owned the original XFL, an eight-team league which played a single season in 2001 before shutting down as a ratings and financial failure.

The XFL is no longer an ex-football league.

According to WKMS , Hubbard hid beneath a set of stairs with another girl as they listened to the screams of their teachers. The incident began at 7:57 a.m. when a 15-year-old student armed with a handgun entered the school and started shooting.

The retrospective below offers a more detailed (and hilarious) recap of the initial XFL run. 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.

Another point McMahon seemed to want to drive home was that they want a "faster game", which seems to be the biggest complaint Irish and United Kingdom sports fans have about American sports. McMahon said he plans to remain its chairman and CEO of WWE, and he remains its main shareholder.

McMahon's announcement comes at a time when the National Football League is TV's most watched property, but its ratings and ad revenues have begun to fall.

One person who's likely to be an XFL fan: President Trump.

One important note, to wrestling fans at least, was that McMahon made sure to note that this repeat venue into football was completely separate from WWE. Salaries will be determined, but McMahon said players will make more money for winning. "It's still football. But it's professional football reimagined".
