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

Vince McMahon: XFL to return in 2020 without gimmicks

McMahon originally debuted the XFL in 2001 but it only lasted for one season. "Everybody laughed when the XFL first said, 'we are going to have an X camera to cover the action, '" he said.

"I have no idea whether or not President Trump will support this", McMahon said on a live stream conference call. "We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time". When he was still a reality television star on NBC's The Apprentice in 2007, Trump grappled ringside with McMahon at WWE's showpiece annual event, WrestleMania 23, in the "Battle of the Billionaires" with each choosing a wrestler to represent them in a match at Ford Field in Detroit. "And people get second chances in the National Football League, so why not?" McMahon said during his Q&A that "We are evaluating a player based on many things, including the quality of human being they are". Running back Rod Smart, famously nicknamed "He Hate Me", and quarterback Tommy Maddox, the XFL's MVP, were among those who made the most of their days in the sparsely watched league.

"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". Teams will supposedly be formed in 2019, and games won't be played until 2020.

The league will own the eight teams.

A statement released by the XFL says it aims to deliver a "fan-centric, innovative, experience" with the focus on a "family-friendly environment".

Trump's tariffs will damage shoppers, employees
China's exports to the US surged 15 percent a year ago , pushing the Asian country's trade surplus with the U.S.to a new record. Instead, they might actually discourage domestic investments in innovation, crucial to an American solar manufacturing revival.

Team identities and logos will be announced following city selection. Since it's not a franchise model, the league will sport a uniform salary cap and punishment system, among other factors. So if he's got the goods, he's willing to play ball.

In an interview with TMZ Sports, the comedian and marijuana enthusiast said the XFL should allow players to use marijuana to help treat pain and concussions sustained while playing.

All things told, it appears it will be a 12-week season.

"The game is going to end in two hours, you can't have a criminal record, you can't have any rebels because you're all going to salute the flag", he moaned.
