XFL team names announced

The XFL revealed the names and logos for its eight teams Wednesday, a long-awaited step toward its February 2020 debut.


The names will be:

Dallas Renegades

Houston Roughnecks

Los Angeles Wildcats

New York Guardians

St. Louis BattleHawks

Seattle Dragons

Tampa Bay Vipers

Washington Defenders

The XFL has spent the past two years determining team locations, signing stadium agreements and hiring head coaches. Its teams will play in a combination of NFL, MLB and MLS facilities. The league office has sent hundreds of draft pool invitations to prospective players and last month announced its first signing: veteran quarterback Landry Jones.

Next up will be finalizing and publicizing a rulebook that the league says will offer a reimagined game of football, including unique extra points, a modified setup for overtime and a shorter play clock to accelerate game tempo.

A draft is scheduled for October, followed by a minicamp in December and training camp in January 2020.

This is going to fail so badly.

Nice. I'd only have to travel 7 hours to get to the closest game.

Raw, Smackdown, NXT and XFL. If Vince doesn't keel over in 6 months, we need to demand that Vince's blood be tested.

Even if he did he'd come back as a ghost and still run things.
