“The new XFL will be fan-centric, with all the things you like to see and less of the things you don’t. We will present a shorter, faster-paced, family friendly and easier-to-understand game,” McMahon said Thursday.

“I believe by the time 2020 comes around, you will have an XFL network where you can see all things XFL and enjoy it how you, the fan, want to enjoy it,” he said.
