The XFL is back and it’s clear that Vince McMahon has learned from his mistakes. The gimmicks and poor on the field play have been replaced by a brand which is committed to getting it right.

That’s why McMahon brought in coaches who have extensive experience. Because of that the execution has been much better and that’s one of the biggest areas that needed improvement. It was hard to go from the NFL to a 2nd tier league with sloppy offenses and lackluster quarterbacks. However the gap wasn’t nearly as bad as it was with the Alliance of American Football. McMahon has also done a really good job of marketing this project. Instead of empty stadiums there seemed to be quite a bit of fans at all four games. So clearly the word got out about this league and the other thing the XFL has going for them is their TV contracts. ABC, FOX, ESPN, and FS1 will all broadcast some games and those networks put some of their top tier play-by-by guys on the call. Joel Klatt and Curt Menefee were a huge upgrade over the AAF’s stream which often times didn’t have any announcers. The whole process is still a work in progress but day one was a total success. The challenge will be keeping fans interested throughout the entire season. However the XFL had to start somewhere and it’s safe to say they’ve hit the ground running.
