WWE Chairman Vince McMahon to bring back XFL Football

Post by HavanaMatt » Thu Jan 25, 2018 4:09 pm

WWE owner and chairman Vince McMahon has announced that he will resurrect the XFL American football league in 2020.

McMahon originally launched the XFL as part of a joint-collaboration with NBC in 2001, but the league lasted
just one season amid criticism of the quality of football, flagging audiences and too much crossover with WWE.

McMahon also has confirmed following much media speculation that the league will return in a new guise.

"The new XFL will kick off in 2020, and quite frankly, we'll give the game of football back to the fans," McMahon told

The Los Angeles Xtreme were the league's last champions.

The 1st season of the new XFL will feature 8 teams with a 10-week schedule. McMahon also noted that games
will be faster, with 2 hours marked as a goal run time.
