After a month of bewildering speculation, wrestling magnate Vince McMahon has officially announced he’s bringing back the XFL, the XTREME football league he first tried to launch in 2001, only for it to fail miserably and collapse after a single 10-game season. The plan is to kick off the league in 2020, with eight teams competing in a 10-game regular season, followed by two semi-final playoff games and a championship game. And that’s about all the solid information McMahon came prepared to share. No players. No cities signed up to host teams. No hard plans for how you’ll actually watch the darn thing beyond buzzwords like “multiplatform.” Instead, McMahon spent plenty of time staring into the camera asking how you, the fans who have had football taken away from them, would rebuild the game and promising to deliver “more of the things you like to see and less of the things you don’t.”

....

 

Good luck.  Mr. McMahon will need it.

If McMahon were willing to let players play right out of high school, I could see this being a much larger threat to college football than pro-football.

AGAIN?!?  McMahon is a business man.  He must need a big tax write off to make another attempt at this disaster.  It appears he didn't learn the first time that the mighty NFL is king sheep of the football world.   I don't think he has enough gimmicks up his sleeve to sway millions of fans over just to watch a sideshow.  Then again, there have been football players become "wrestlers".  So I guess it follows...... wrestlers becoming football players?  I suppose it's no dumber thought than his taking on the NFL (again).  Whatever, dude.

My Man, you are missing the boat here on the reboot XFL

It is not going to be the same as the 1st attempt during the "attitude" era of WWE. 

WWE is now a very successful, Global Entity that is publicly traded.  

Vince sold 100 million shares of his company to SELF FUND this venture thru his new company Alpha Entertainment.  

It will be Football.  It will be on when NFL is not.  

I think you are stuck in the 80s mindset of Pro Wrassling......
