"The XFL will be a labor of love as I get to combine my experiences as a player and executive", Luck told ESPN in an email. The fact that the WWE is a finance-rich, publicly traded company with an experienced businessman like McMahon at the helm was attractive to Luck, according to sources. Luck was selected in the second round of the 1982 National Football League draft by the Houston Oilers where he played until 1986.
Luck added: "Football has always been a constant in my life and I'm excited about the unique opportunity to present America's favorite sport to fans in a new way". Each team will have 40-man active rosters, and the playoffs will consist four teams. He pledged shorter games and an affordable family experience with teams that fans can have pride in. There's a reported $100 million outlay by McMahon to start the XFL. "People don't want social and political issues coming into play when they are trying to be entertained", McMahon told ESPN in January. Host cities and stadiums are now being sought by the league through requests for proposals.
