It will be called the XFL, the same name of the league McMahon and NBC tried for one season in 2001, but it won't rely on flashy cheerleaders and antics as its predecessor did, he said. The XFL will launch with eight teams, 40-man active rosters and a 10-week regular-season schedule.
While no cities have been identified for potential teams, McMahon said all teams would be owned by the league and would not be individual franchises.
Also, McMahon said players' character would count as much or more than their athletic ability.
McMahon believes the quality of play is what turned people off from the league.
He also mentioned there will be rules and regulations, but wasn't clear if players will face fines if they do not stand for the national anthem.
"It'll have nothing to do with politics or social issues, we're here to play football".
According to PWInsider (h/t WrestlingInc.com's Joshua Gagnon), McMahon wants to take his time in order to have a "proper foundation" in place.
Rumours of the XFL's return started late previous year when it emerged that Vince had taken $100 million of his own money out of WWE and put it into a new venture, the parent company of the new XFL "Alpha Entertainment".

Vince McMahon has announced that the previously short-lived XFL football league will return in the year 2020. It will be instrumental for McMahon to find a broadcast partner from the get go, and it will be interesting to see if he went straight for a popular streaming service considering the success he's had with the WWE Network.
McMahon said the XFL would be "Football reimagined". "We want good football, that's what we'll deliver". "I think it would be appropriate to do that". "It's football. But you want to reimagine it".
The XFL recently returned to pop-culture discussion due to ESPN's30 for 30 documentary This Was the XFL.
What are you most excited to see from the new league?
The original XFL was a joint venture between the WWE, then known as the World Wrestling Federation, and NBC. Every city is on the radar.
When the XFL first came out in 2001, it was received with high ratings for the first game - but the interest dropped dramatically when the level of play was poor and he resorted to making the games have WWE-like storylines.
"I can say, 'Here are the rules, and as long as you are playing football in the stadium for us, you follow these rules'".
The idea was a more exciting, faster-paced brand of football that didn't have kickoffs and supported player personality. It could go full pirate ship/rebel and court players like Johnny Manziel, Tim Tebow, and Colin Kaepernick.
It also says 24 civilians have been killed - 22 in Turkish air and artillery strikes, and two as a result of Kurdish fire. However many analysts argue that Turkey would never have gone ahead with the offensive without the Kremlin's blessing.
