Could WWE chairman Vince McMahon's XFL rival the NFL?

Could WWE chairman Vince McMahon's XFL rival the NFL?

One thing is sure, it's McMahon's game, and he makes the rules. "We're going to give the game of football back to fans".

For example, NBC broadcast an entire National Football League game this season using the SkyCam - a camera suspended from cables that allows the viewer to watch from the view of the quarterback - which was first used by the XFL. So what's different this time around?

The two men, just a year apart in age, go back a long way. But despite their relationship, the wrestling mogul said that he doesn't know if Trump will agree with his new idea.

After Linda McMahon was approved by the Senate as Administrator of the Small Business Administration last February, the extended McMahon family posed for a picture at Trump's desk in the Oval Office, with two of Vince and Linda's grandchildren holding a photograph of that hair-shaving moment. The 72-year-old claims that XFL players will be evaluated on "many things including the quality of human being they are".

McMahon is aiming for the relaunched product to kick off in 2020.

Pence: The US Embassy Move to Jerusalem is Happening Next Year
Pence confirmed several elements of US-Israel policy in his speech , which received a mixed response from the Israelis. The Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with the European Union foreign ministers last month.

"We played in the first game and I made a field goal, so that was pretty cool".

But despite McMahon's protestations, politics seems to be precisely at the heart of the XFL relaunch.

Speaking to TMZ on Thursday, Lewis said he thinks the league is making a mistake by not accepting players with criminal records and forcing participants to stand for the national anthem.

The XFL has not confirmed when its games will be played, but McMahon said it would most likely be a late-winter/early-spring football league. 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.

Despite the fact McMahon stated several times in the announcement live stream yesterday as well that there would be no connection between the new XFL and the WWE, several superstars took to Twitter to comment on the WWE Chairman's announcement.
