WWE chairman Vince McMahon launches 'new XFL'

Titus-ONeil-WWE WWE chairman Vince McMahon launches 'new XFL'
Shannon Reynolds | 26 January, 2018, 20:38

The XFL is set for a surprising second life under WWE leader Vince McMahon.

"It's still football, but it's professional football reimagined", the 72-year-old McMahon told a news conference. Although the XFL is coming back, games won't actually be played until 2020. Former NFL players or NFL hopefuls played in the league then.

McMahon said the league would consult medical experts to make the game safer, and would seek to keep politics off the field. "We're there to play football". It's interesting to note that McMahon has also stated that any player with a criminal background will not be allowed to enter his league, even down to a DUI.

McMahon's announcement gained traction on Twitter with #XFL2020 becoming the top trending hashtag in the United States.

Lady Gaga Shares a New Stripped-Down Piano Version of 'Joanne'
Gaga is up for two Grammy Awards: "Best Pop Solo Performance" for "Million Reasons" and "Best Pop Vocal Album" for " Joanne ". Late previous year Gaga wrote on 'Today is the anniversary of my father's sister Joanne's passing.

The last time the XFL was seen on television was in 2001, their only season in existence. "I got ya. May be I do have 1 more comeback left me".

The league will consist of eight 40-man teams. So if he's got the goods, he's willing to play ball.

Vince McMahon promised a lot of things when he re-launched the XFL.

Ultimately, the right combination could be a running clock, until the final five or two minutes of the half, coupled with a shortened play clock that essentially forces teams to run a two-minute drill for the full 60 minutes of clock time.
