I was vaguely aware that WWE’s Vince McMahon and others were relaunching the XFL. Apparently, this “league” starts up in 2020 and they just announced the first eight teams in a borderline ridiculous video.
Barry Petchesky, writing in Deadspin, has the hottest take looking at the boringness and blandness of everything and then comparing it to the XFL first go around teams. It’s too bad they didn’t think to bring in some of the old names. Still, I actually kind of dig BattleHawks.
By the way, whatever happened to the Alliance of American Football?
