The XFL Returning to Television in 2020

The XFL Returning to Television in 2020

The league lasted one season 2001 with eight teams that played during the late winter and spring after the NFL season ended.

Its first season will have eight teams with 40-man rosters around the country playing a 10-week schedule starting during the "end of January, early February", McMahon said. At this point in time, no cities were announced as the XFL is still looking into that.

"As far as our league is concerned, it will have nothing to do with politics", McMahon said.

"As long as everyone abides by the rules as laid down", McMahon said, an obvious reference to everyone standing for the anthem.

According to PWInsider (h/t WrestlingInc.com's Joshua Gagnon), McMahon wants to take his time in order to have a "proper foundation" in place.

He will have time to prepare as CBS reports that McMahon is expected to announce the league won't return until 2020.

WWE Chairman and Owner Vince McMahon is bringing back the XFL more than 15 years after the league folded.

"We have two years now to really get it right", McMahon said, adding that all possibilities are on the table when it comes to how the games will air and which USA cities will be participating in the league.

Vince McMahon is bringing back the XFL. "We want good football, that's what we'll deliver".

- The broadcast specifics are yet to be determined, but are exploring customized feeds for games to give fans what they want. "What has happened there is their business, and I'm not going to knock those guys, but I am going to learn from their mistakes as anyone would if they were tasked with reimagining a new football league". Rumors about the XFL revival picked up in the wake of an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary titled "This Was the XFL" which aired in February 2017 and after National Football League protests.

Furthermore, McMahon seemed to confirm that the league's target audience is one that complained about the political nature of the NFL. "We will be listening", McMahon said. Players were allowed to be more physical, as referees allowed the "anything goes" style.

- Vince is asked about wrestling and football broadcasters working together, and Vince says there will be no crossover whatsoever between WWE and XFL.

The original XFL, a joint venture between WWE and NBC, lasted for one season. "We have a lot of question for you, and we are going to listen". Those rumors rose to a fever pitch after McMahon sold $100 million in WWE stock purportedly to have enough cash on hand to put toward the return of his football empire.
