Yesterday, Vince McMahon held a press conference to reveal his vision for the new iteration of the XFL. While speaking to the media, McMahon explained that he was going to exclude players who have had a criminal history from joining the league.

McMahon said the “quality of human being” will be key in his new league. He said players with arrest records won’t be allowed in.

“You want someone who does not have any criminality whatsoever associated with them. And in the XFL, even if you have a DUI, you will not play in the XFL,”

Before McMahon’s press conference Manziel seemed pretty hyped about joining the new league but then quickly soured on the idea when it was clear that he may be excluded by the XFL because of his past.
