Like the first rendition of the XFL, the league will consist of eight teams that will play games with a two-round playoff.
Vince McMahon announced the return of the XFL at a press conference on Thursday. McMahon said the league will own the teams under a single entity rather than follow the franchise ownership model that many professional leagues follow today. The latter would potentially be a complicated situation, as Kaepernick made headlines starting in 2016 for protesting during the national anthem before games, which McMahon said would be against the rules in the new XFL. "We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time".
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon announced that he is bringing back the XFL in 2020. "Quite frankly, we only had a very short time in the past to put everything together". It will be instrumental for McMahon to find a broadcast partner from the get go, and it will be interesting to see if he went straight for a popular streaming service considering the success he's had with the WWE Network.
While the league initially netted strong ratings on NBC, it quickly faded due largely to a lack of quality football. They are going to go where the fans want them to go.

What would you do if you could reimagine the game of football?
While his first jump into professional football was seen as a failure due to the league relying more on flash and antics than football, McMahon insisted he is giving this second try a more serious effort. Given that the XFL launched so quickly in 2001 only to burn out after one season, it appears that Vince McMahon is taking a more methodical approach for the reboot.
Furthermore, McMahon seemed to confirm that the league's target audience is one that complained about the political nature of the NFL. The league lasted just one season as NBC pulled the plug after ratings fell drastically.

The idea was a more exciting, faster-paced brand of football that didn't have kickoffs and supported player personality. "We are there to play football". Every city is on the radar. "We have a lot of question for you, and we are going to listen".
Trump, a WWE Hall of Famer, is also a longtime friend of McMahon.
Of course the XFL has a cult status in the annals of popular culture, with ESPN making a 30 for 30 about the league previous year and the film being widely well receive McMahon was asked did the positive reaction play a part in his decision to bring the XFL back.
