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?

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
