Vince McMahon's New XFL Reveals 8 Team Names, Logos

There really seems to be a trend to bring back nostalgic icons that existed in the 90s/00s. One that Vince McMahon and Co are looking to experiment on again is the XFL. The XFL aims to be an alternative professional football league to the NFL.

This is a slight change of plans from the old XFL that existed. The original had a strong focus on adding "entertainment" to the sports action. It was ran as a co-venture with WWE and would feature more drama than a focus on the sport. This didn't last as the league only lasted for one season. The new XFL aims to be more of a focus on quick game play and ties well into complaints that we've seen levied from Donald Trump against the NFL.

The XFL has announced the teams and cities in a new announcement. The following are what's been released:

  • St. Louis Battlehawks
  • Tampa Bay Vipers
  • The New York Guardians
  • Seattle Dragons
  • Houston Roughnecks
  • Los Angeles Wildcats
  • DC Defenders
  • Dallas Renegades

What do you think of the XFL? Would you like to see it added under #amfootball before it starts play in February?

Vince McMahon's second try at the XFL announced its eight team names and logos on Wednesday morning. The rebooted league will begin play next February.

Sounds good To me

I kinda hope we get another football league going. The NFL has too much bloat to it...

Agreed. No more BS calls, free extra points, and politics. Just football.

I'm also looking forward to some new innovations (like actually having to play for 1 extra point, having the option to get 3 extra points, etc.). Due to the first XFL being such a goofy failure, everyone takes for granted all the things they started before the NFL copied:

  • Cameras following the players on the field
  • Players being mic'd up
  • Line of scrimmage for the viewer (may need to fact-check me on this one)

The deadliest weapons that McMahon and the XFL have now that they didn't back in the early 2000's:

  • Streaming Culture & Social Media
    • I'd be willing to bet lots of Steem & Sports tokens that McMahon will enhance his current WWE Network over-the-top streaming service to include XFL live streaming, past games, exclusive content, etc. (perhaps inline with what UFC has done with their Fight Pass streaming network).

He should probably just stick to wrestling

That was the issue with XFL Part I back in the 2000's. I think that as long as Vince remains quietly in the background this time -- and NOT a character, then this might make it. No Jesse Ventura as the commentator, silly names (does anyone remember He Hate Me lol?), or hot tubs in the end-zone.

There's a great ESPN 30-30 Documentary about it called This was the XFL. Highly recommended.

would be a cool add on, there needs to be something besides NFL....I'd watch cause of Vince behind it

Agreed, just so-long as he sticks to Vince the savvy businessman and not the "Mr. McMahon" wrestling character. The latter was why no one took the 1st iteration of XFL seriously back in the early 2000's.

Let's go DC Defenders!

I was excited about XFL years ago but it had a ton of problems. Word on the street is that McMahon isn't going to try to introduce gimmicky stuff from the WWE, which was a big problem back in 2001.

The names of the teams are kinda odd, but i guess we gotta name them something. I'm looking forward to it and hope it is great.

I would like to see it added to am-football but isn't it already?
