Vince McMahon announces new XFL as 'football reimagined' with no politics

The league collapsed after just one season, with NBC and the WWF losing tens of millions of dollars. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the rumors are true.
Alpha Entertainment will start with $100 million in funding, and McMahon said he will have "plenty of capital" to bring his vision to fruition. "Mr. McMahon has nothing further to announce at this time", WWE said in a statement back on December 16, 2017.
"I can say, 'Here are the rules, and as long as you are playing football in the stadium for us, you follow these rules'". Kaepernick could very well have an NFL job or be done with the game of football in two year's time. "I think part of the failure of the XFL the first time around is it didn't live up to unreasonably lofty expectations, and they lost the expectations game". Interesting McMahon said that there will be "no crossover whatsoever from WWE", considering that the "old" XFL had WWE commentators and featured appearances from many WWE Superstars and McMahon. No cities or TV partners were named.
McMahon said being the only owner of all of the teams will allow him to do whatever he wants. But the audience did not stick around on Saturday nights to watch bad football, lascivious cheerleader shots, sophomoric double entendres and other gimmicks that saw ratings plummet and quickly doomed the league. The new version will have eight teams, like the first XFL, with a 10-game schedule.
The XFL post-season will have two semifinal games and a championship game. "It will be shorter, faster-paced, and easier to understand game".
When asked by a reporter whether President Trump would support the new league, McMahon said he had no idea, but added his new football league would "have absolutely nothing to do with politics". Its stated goal: "explore investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscapes, including professional football".
The XFL also featured nicknames rather than surnames on the back of player jerseys, the most infamous being "He Hate Me", worn by Las Vegas Outlaws (and future Carolina Panthers) running back Rod Smart. "And nothing to do with social issues, either. We are there to play football".
Vince McMahon has dominated the world of professional wrestling as the CEO of WWE for decades now, but he's hoping to expand beyond the mat and into the gridiron. It'll be important for players (and the NFLPA, and the media, and the public) to keep an eye on a fledgling XFL to make sure it's not sacrificing working conditions and employee quality of life in the quest for maximum profit.
