The XFL just kicked off their return season and one team already fired a coach.

The Los Angeles Wildcats have axed their defensive coordinator and line backers coach Pepper Johnson. This comes after the Wildcats lost their first game to the Houston Roughnecks.

The team’s defensive captain Anthony Johnson was also cut from the team. Johnson tweeted out that he’s a free agent now so he’s still hoping that another team will pick him up.

There is obviously going to be a bit of an adjustment period as the team settles in. This does mark the first coach firing after the XFL’s re-launch.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
