The XFL announced their 2020 team names yesterday and for a league led by the CEO of WWE they're surprisingly unremarkable.
What if they had named them with a neural network instead?

ht @griner for the idea; neural net sampled via  http://talktotransformer.com

What if the XFL had used the neural net that named these high school robotics teams?

The neural net also suggested these XFL team names.

not sure if "I'm Fine and You" is the most or the least intimidating team on there
