The Rock’s passion for American football has been a driving force throughout his life, stemming from his own aspirations to play professionally. Moreover, he has channeled that passion to create opportunities for young aspirants with the UFL who had a successful season opener recently.

In 2020, The Rock, alongside his ex-wife and business partner Dany Garcia, faced challenges with their acquisition of the XFL League, which resulted in significant financial losses.

Undeterred by setbacks, they embarked on a transformative journey, culminating in the merger of the XFL and USFL to establish the UFL league. This strategic move aimed to provide a new path for aspiring players to pursue their dreams of reaching the NFL and beyond.

The UFL season opened with some exciting kick-off games featuring teams from both past leagues like the Birmingham Stallions, Michigan Panthers, Memphis Showboats, and The San Antonio Brahmas and the entire season opener received a thunderous response on Day 1 itself.


Seeing the response to the UFL season’s beginning, The Rock took to his Instagram to drop poignant moments and reflect on the amazing day that could become a top-tier beacon of opportunity for young American football aspirants in the future.

Historic & high energy day in pro football as we launched our @UFL the UNITED FOOTBALL LEAGUE 🚀🏈🏟️

I love the game of the football and believe deeply in the work ethic & integrity it instills in our DNA.

Man I’m blessed and grateful to be able to help create opportunities for players, coaches & staff to live their dreams.

Yes, I’m tired as fuck.
Yes, I’m in my final week of training camp, preparing for WrestleMania.
Yes, regardless of fatigue- we all have jobs to do and they all must get done.

And yes, I learned a long time ago to never bitch or moan because no one gives a fuck 🤗

Incredible energy and beautiful mana all weekend for our UFL – THANK YOU FANS.


– final boss
