The Tampa Bay team, which does not yet have a name, will play its home games at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

World Wrestling Entertainment founder and Chairman McMahon has come up with a different game plan than the one employed by his first football league that mixed the sport with aspects of his wrestling empire.

"We're really looking forward to once again establishing a very exciting, innovative form of football that quite frankly we've never seen before", McMahon said.

The XFL folded after one wild season in 2001, spawning nicknames such as Rod "He Hate Me" Smart.

He mentioned the hundreds of players that get cut from the National Football League and they will be invited to try out for the XFL.
