XFL, or The Extreme Football League was a phenomenom that swept across the nation for about a year, before they ended it due to it's cost, and violent nature. Vince McMahan, creator of the WWF, wanted to create a competing football league against the more widely known NFL. Audiences failed to watch XFL, and it was ended after one season. It goes down in history with the lowest primetime tv rating ever- 1.5. XFL, however, created the popular Sky Cam, which the NFL adoptive. Some XFL players found success in the NFL after XFL ended.
The teams were divided up into two divisions- western and eastern.
