WWE mastermind Vince McMahon is bringing the XFL back from the dead and awarding Dallas a shot at sports legend or infamy in 2020.

All of the XFL cities already have National Football League teams except for St. Louis.

As host for the XFL press conference, NY was the first city announced.

The league founded by the WWE mogul announced Wednesday that St. Louis and seven other cities - Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington, D.C - will get XFL teams.

Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon 855
Another interesting new feature of Snapdragon 855 is the Snapdragon Elite Gaming which in general, still being draped in mystery. What we do know is that the 855 will probably power the bulk of next year's high-end smartphones (because what else would?).

It's still unclear what the nicknames will be for these teams, although the XFL's first run in 2001 included franchises in a few of these cities. All eight teams are owned by the league. McMahon, sounding like he had just smoked a carton of cigarettes and then chewed some nails, explained that this new version of the XFL would be nothing like the old one, that it would be "football reimagined", and that they would soon be doing all that reimagining and would let us know what comes of it.

The new XFL will deliver a fan-centric, innovative experience, including fast-paced games and a family-friendly environment, complemented by cross-platform viewing options and real-time fan engagement.

Vince McMahon speaks about the XFL in 2000. "New Jersey couldn't be happier to be one of the eight host sites for the XFL's 2020 revival season". They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts.

Luck says they will look for the best coaches and players available and majority will have college and National Football League experience.

Luck also said there was an active effort to guarantee lower ticket costs compared with other professional sporting events, but no concrete numbers were offered.

Luck said the biggest expense for the league will be paying the players and coaches, with the average salary of the 40-man rosters expected to be around $75,000.
