WWE chairman Vince McMahon has announced that the XFL will return in 2020. While this isn’t your usual Kentucky sports news you get at UK Fans All Day, this news could mean something for former Kentucky football players who couldn’t make the NFL. The non-traditional football league only lasted for one year when it first tried to rival the NFL. ESPN even had a 30 for 30 on the league which was called “This Was the XFL”.
As mentioned above, I bring this news to you because of the opportunity that may open for former Kentucky football players. Guys like Boom Williams, Javess Blue, Donte Rumph, etc. who played well at Kentucky may use this opportunity instead of going to the CFL or Arena football. Of course the XFL was known for its roughness so they’d have have to be prepared but it’s an opportunity to get payed playing football. With all this said, I’m looking forward to seeing if the XFL can compete with the NFL and showcase quality football.
