  • XFL To Return in 2020

    It appears Vince McMahon is ready to get back in to football, as ESPN's Darren Rovell is reporting the WWE CEO will announce Thursday afternoon that he's starting a new professional league.

    McMahon previously launched his own professional football league, the XFL, in 2001 but the organization folded after just one season.

    McMahon registered a number of trademarks in December that suggested a potential foray into professional football, and sold $100 million of his WWE stock to fund a new venture.

    The XFL lost $70 million in its one season of operation, according to Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.com, so it's doubtful that McMahon would simply reboot the defunct league with no changes.

                  If they lose the gimmicks and try to put something together as serious as the USFL, I might watch. Until then, it's just arena league football.

                    I'll watch it. The Cowboys are often a joke, so what's the difference?

                      Vince McMahon vows higher quality play in the new XFL
                      Posted by Michael David Smith on January 25, 2018, 3:24 PM EST

                      This is the XFL again, but it’s a better XFL, according to Vince McMahon.

                      McMahon, the wrestling mogul who announced today that he is re-launching his pro football league, said that the No. 1 priority will be making the quality of play on the field better than it was when he tried and failed to establish the league in 2001.

                      “I think the most important thing we learned with the older XFL and now the new XFL is the quality of the play,” he said. “We have two years to really get it right. It’s the quality of the play.”

                      McMahon didn’t say precisely how he plans to make the game on the field better, but he did say he will spend a great deal of time listening to everyone — football players, coaches, fans, members of the media, sports medicine experts and others — to figure out how to make the game better.

                      As for whether the XFL will have the famous jerseys with nicknames on the back, McMahon isn’t sure.

                      “I’m not sure if we’ll have the individuality like ‘He Hate Me.’ We’re not there yet,” McMahon said.

                      The new league won’t launch until January of 2020, and McMahon said he has no idea where teams will be located.

                      “We’re way away from announcing any cities,” McMahon said.

                      There’s still a lot McMahon doesn’t know. But he does know he has some unfinished business in pro football.

                              Not if he also wants to field a "quality product".
