It was previously discussed that the new XFL is pretty much like the original XFL in the sense that both leagues have the same number of teams which is eight. The original XFL consisted of the following teams: Birmingham Thunderbolts, Chicago Enforcers, Las Vegas Outlaws, Memphis Maniax, New York/ New Jersey Hitmen, Orlando Rage, San Francisco Demons, and the Championship Team, Los Angeles Xtreme.
The original XFL was partially owned by NBC Owner Dick Ebersol & partially owned by WWE (Formerly WWF) Owner Vince McMahon. Much like how it will be when the new XFL will relaunch in early 2020, all eight teams were owned and will be owned by Vince McMahon only.
There will be no politics involved or any other stuff related to that. Despite Vince McMahon owning all teams, the new XFL will not be connected to the WWE in any way.
