XFL

Vince McMahon of the World Wrestling Entertainment set up the XFL in 2001 to bring American Football back to the fans with more extreme rules and names referencing mental-illness and criminality – at the time the NFL was known as the “No Fun League” for clamping down on celebrations and bringing in more rules to protect players.

It lasted one season, but he is bringing it back in 2020.
