The XFL isn’t dead yet, because The Rock and his partners swooped in and acquired the company for $15 million. This is an exciting announcement as the world wonders what The Rock is cooking.
There was some initial opposition to The Rock’s partners buying the XFL. It appears that unless the court decides it can’t proceed the deal is going to happen.
The People’s Champion sent out a social media post to thank everyone who was involved in making this deal happen. The Rock’s big pro football dreams never got to come true, but now he will be able to help others achieve things he couldn’t.
I’ll start this post with a heartfelt & excited, THANK YOU for the incredible responses I’ve been seeing from you all day.
With my trail blazing partner @DanyGarciaCo & RedBird Capital’s Gerry Cardinale – we have acquired the XFL.
With gratitude & passion I’ve built a career with my own two hands and will apply these callouses to building our @xfl brand to create something special for the fans.
My dreams of playing professional football never came true, however – this passion venture allows me to create opportunities for other players to showcase their talents, take care of their families and make their own dreams come true.
Now, my partners and I go to work – for the love of football.
2021 will supposedly see the XFL’s relaunch and it will be under different ownership. We’ll have to see how The Rock changes the game of football, but there are tons of fans who are very excited to see what they will do.
