If you had any doubts about whether their would be any type of National Anthem controversy in the XFL, Vince McMahon put those doubts to rest on Thursday.

The WWE Chairman and CEO announced Thursday he will be bringing back the XFL, a league which folded after one season in 2001. It will make its triumphant return in 2020.

During his press conference, McMahon suggested that the XFL won’t have an National Anthem issue like the NFL is going through, as he made it very apparent that all players will indeed respect the flag.

McMahon said players in his league will not be given the forum to take a personal stance while on the playing field. McMahon’s wife, Linda, heads the Small Business Administration in Trump’s Cabinet.

“People don’t want social and political issues coming into play when they are trying to be entertained,” McMahon said. “We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time.”

McMahon said being the only owner of all of the teams will allow him to do whatever he wants.

“I can say, ‘Here are the rules, and as long as you are playing football in the stadium for us, you follow these rules.’”
