    :laugh:

    How well has this been hyped in the States this time around?

    I don't think anyone over here knows **** all about it, even wrestling fans. I'm shocked WWE hasn't been blasting it everywhere.

    Hardly any. They had a commercial during the Super Bowl, and there would be some segments on ESPN and teasers on the networks, but it wasn't aggressive at all. I've had to google several times to figure out the time and channel the first game was on :laugh:.

    So far... not great :laugh:

    Quite surprised at that. Wouldn't have thought Vince would run a tame advertising campaign.

    What's the attendance at the game like?

    This is definitely much different from the original iteration. You'd not know it was connected to Vince at all. Presented like a quieter version of the NFL. May not watch again until it's called by Jim Ross and Jesse Ventura.

    So, is it exactly the same rules as the NFL or because it’s the XFL are like chokeslams & tables allowed?

    That was the earlier version.

    This is more like the NFL with some tweaked rules to get more scoring like not PATs and you can choose 1, 2, or 3 points depending on how far from the end zone. There are also double forward passes, but haven't seen that yet. the OT rules are sort of interesting too.
