McMahon had a lot to say during a press conference he held earlier today. "As we move towards kickoff, we look forward to listening and implementing innovative ideas from players, coaches, medical experts, technology executives, the media and most importantly football fans". In 2000, when McMahon announced the first XFL, the league had only one year to prepare for competition, which is considered a factor for its downfall. McMahon said he plans to remain its chairman and CEO of WWE, and he remains its main shareholder.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN the league would not comment on the XFL. "The new XFL is an exciting opportunity to reimagine America's favorite sport". No cities or TV partners were named. Competition will begin with eight teams of 40-man rosters and what McMahon called a "faster, more fan-centric game".
In 1999, WWE'sVince McMahon founded his own football league as an alternative to the NFL. The four XFL teams from 2001 were based in Orlando, Chicago, New York/New Jersey, Birmingham, Memphis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. When asked whether those big names would be welcome in the new XFL, Vince McMahon had an interesting response... Four teams will make the playoffs, setting up semifinals and a championship game. There's surely a representative number of National Football League players with whom McMahon is more popular than Roger Goodell. He struck out in his attempt to get a piece of the football pie years ago, but maybe he can learn from those failures. Running back Rod Smart, famously nicknamed "He Hate Me", and quarterback Tommy Maddox, the XFL's MVP, were among those who made the most of their days in the sparsely watched league.
While Vince McMahon stopped short of saying standing during the anthem would be mandated, he said he believes standing is the right thing to do and that XFL players won't get involved in politics or social justice.
The name will be the same as the failed 2001 league, but it won't rely gimmicks, McMahon said. Anyone who is a skilled football player and is s good person is welcome. Alpha Entertainment has also since acquired five XFL trademarks that WWE abandoned between 2002 and 2005. The XFL will play a 10-game regular-season schedule beginning in January or February of 2020, he said.
