    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.

    Hell, I might have a decent shot making the team.

    Only $48k a year on a standard? How the hell are they going to be able to retain players?

    Well, they are preparing with a full year. The AAF tried to start in less than six months, which was crazy.
    The NFL's failed pathetic attempt to undercut them has backfired.

    Go, Vince, Go!
