Jared Lorenzen Tweets At Vince McMahon, Wants In On XFL (TWEET)

WWE chairman and CEO Vince Mc Mahon has announced new plans to launch a professional football league

It sounds, well, better than the original XFL, which - let's face it - was a disaster... aside from some of the cool innovations like mic'd up players and on-field cameras.

After the XFL's miserable first run, the current political climate and the increased consumption of digital content could be the flawless time for McMahon to try to correct the one big failure of his career. Even after a year of protests, I and everybody I know didn't stop watching football.

McMahon said the National Football League controversies had nothing to do with the XFL re-launch and the plan had been in place "for some time".

The XFL is coming back in 2020.

McCallum says McMahon made it clear that he loved the nicknames when he met with players shortly before the first game. "I don't believe this guy specifically".

"For McMahon that would have been entertainment and you laugh about it, but I was taking it seriously".

US Embassy to move to Jerusalem
Mogherini said the two sides needed "to show more than ever before their engagement with the global community" to work for peace. A small group of Palestinians in the West Bank town of Bethlehem protested Pence's arrival by burning posters with his image.

The XFL was a spectacular financial failure in its first run, losing McMahon and USA television broadcaster NBC a reported US$70 million. But the audience did not stick around on Saturday nights to watch second-rate football, lascivious cheerleader shots, sophomoric double entendres and other gimmicks that quickly doomed the league.

Thanks to the XFL, Singh is the answer to an obscure sports trivia question. We're there to play football.

"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".

The XFL will kick off in January 2020 and play for 10 weeks, he said, suggesting the season will overlap some with the National Football League, which wraps up with the Super Bowl in early February.

"You're not trying to reinvent the wheel", McCallum said. Meltzer added network television could be a tough get for The XFL as all of the major networks such as ABC, CBS, and FOX all carry the NFL.
