McMahon gives XFL second life


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

"The new XFL is an exciting opportunity to reimagine America's favorite sport", said Vince McMahon.

While the league was mocked for many of its gimmicks, it also deserves credit for bringing some new ideas to the football world. The postseason will feature two semifinal playoff games before the championship.

McMahon said it will not affect his WWE role as chairman or creatively at all, and that he thinks the distribution will be a combination of standard and a new way. XFL salaries have yet to be decided, though players will be paid more to win.

The announcement of the return of the XFL is now sparking speculation about pro football returning to St. Louis.

It may be too early to determine whether the XFL will allow marijuana, and perhaps even the National Football League will have changed its policies by 2020.

McCallum says McMahon made it clear that he loved the nicknames when he met with players shortly before the first game. The league was plagued with anthem protests, players getting into trouble and a general sense that the animals were running the circus.

"People don't want social and political issues coming into play when they are trying to be entertained", McMahon said in an interview with ESPN.

For example, NBC broadcast an entire National Football League game this season using the SkyCam - a camera suspended from cables that allows the viewer to watch from the view of the quarterback - which was first used by the XFL. We're there to play football.

This is slightly fewer than the NFL's 53-man roster, but it's still a good number of players.

"The XFL and WWE will have no crossover, unlike the first incarnation when wrestling announcers and personalities such as former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura dominated the football telecast".

McMahon's new XFL will kick off in "late January or early February" of 2020 with eight teams, a 10-game regular season and "simplified" rules to speed up the game to about two hours.
