    He Hate Me 2: Electric Boogaloo (THE XFL IS BACK)

    Vince McMahon and Alpha Entertainment will be live streaming a "huge" announcement at 3pm EST, images have already leaked and it is indeed the return of the XFL. Once more details emerge, they'll be posted here. The initial idea is to have the league ready to go for a 2020 start.

    I bet that not only will the players be forced to stand during the national anthem, they will do it standing on immigrants backs while firing AR-15s into the air. MAGA MERICA

    The Mar-a-lago Orangutans are the early favorites to win it all.

    Press conference going on now. Vince says there will be NO crossover with WWE. In fact he says this might be his only public appearance in regards to the launch of the league. Claims the XFL will be a place for football and will be devoid of politics and social issues when a reporter asked him about Trump. Says they will start with 8 teams, a 10 team regular season, 2 semi finals, and 1 championship. No plans yet for host cities. Says the teams will be owned by the league and will not be franchised. He keeps emphasizing "WE'RE HERE FOR FOOTBALL AND THE FANS GUYZ"

    Vince says they look to run from late January/early February to end of March/early April
    No plans (yet) to let players put whatever on the back of jerseys again
    Vince stresses quality of character in players will be paramount when reporter asks about Johnny Manziel. Vince responds that anyone with a DUI will not be allowed to play. Stresses this will be FAMILY FRIENDLY FOOTBALL.

    Vince said players must abide by the rules of the league or they don't play. When a reporter followed up and asked if there would be a rule that players had to stand for the anthem, he was vague and said that will be looked at but his personal feeling was they should stand.

    The XFL will probably succeed this time. There's the WWE Network this time around, plus streaming is now feasible so there's no need to cave to network demands. Can specifically curate content to the appropriate audience.

    Oliver Luck (Andrew Luck's dad) has been hired as XFL Commissioner, and confirmed that players will be required to stand for the national anthem.
