XFL Team Names, Descriptions and Logos Revealed (Photo, Video)

Vince McMahon’s XFL league announced their 8 team names and logos earlier today. The leaugue is set to re-launch in February 2020 during the weekend after the NFL’s Super Bowl.

“The XFL is about football and fun, and our team identities are intended to signify just that,” XFL President and COO Jeffrey Pollack said in a league press release. “Now it’s up to our fans and players to help write the story. What happens on the field and in the community in the years ahead will determine the true spirit of each team.”

Above is video from today’s reveal, and below are the team names with descriptions, along with the logos:

Dallas Renegades
“Deep in the heart of Texas… …beats a different kind of pulse. A spirit untamed. A swagger that can’t be denied. Where big meets bold meets badass. This is outlaw country, inside the lines. This is hell on wheels, between hash marks. This is their home on the range. The Dallas Renegades. Raising hell. February 2020.”

Houston Roughnecks
“Resolute. Rippling with heat. Railing against fatigue. Unceasing and often unseen, they labor deep in the trenches. Mercenaries in the muck. Brawlers in blackened dirt. Not just for three hours. Not just when the lights are bright. These are the scratching, grinding, never-bending few. The Houston Roughnecks. Going to work for you. February 2020.”

Los Angeles Wildcats
“In the land of bright lights. Far from the flash and fame. They’ve already begun to prowl. Enter their den and be dominated. Run away and be ripped apart. This is prime time meets primal instinct. This is showtime with a snarl. This is our time to roar. The L.A. Wildcats. Unleashed. February 2020.”

New York Guardians
“Sentries carved of stone. Watchdogs over the metropolis. A prehistoric predator. A beast evolves, turned loose in a new kind of jungle. All teeth and talons, eyes unblinking. They know fear, because they feed off it. They are your first line of defense, and there is no need for a second. The New York Guardians. On duty. February 2020.”

St. Louis BattleHawks
“Winged warriors. Preparing for flight. Preparing to fight. They await their orders. Then attack as one. Diving, dodging, swooping, striking. Their mission: create chaos. Their mandate: Win at all costs. The St. Louis BattleHawks. Cleared to engage. February 2020.”

Seattle Dragons
“Rising from the turbulent sea. Beneath the darkening skies of their weather-hardened home. Relentless, ruthless, ravenous. Not of mythology, but of muscle and might. Not of folklore, but of football. This is your darkest fantasy…in cleats. The Seattle Dragons. Breathing fire. February 2020.”

Tampa Bay Vipers
“In the shadows they wait. Demons, born in darkness. Hunters by instinct. Cold-blooded by nature. Their bite, unavoidable. Their grip, inescapable. They slither and stalk their competition. Luring all who challenge them… …into the jaws of defeat. The Tampa Bay Vipers. Ready to strike. February 2020.”

DC Defenders
“On the shoulders of giants, they stand tall. Unconquerable. Unyielding. Marching ever forward, A force united. One quest. One purpose. One resolve. Seeking glory through grit. Victory through valor. The DC Defenders. Taking their stand. February 2020.”
