This is HUGE!
On Monday, it was reported that WWE legend and actor Dwayne Johnson became part owner of the XFL.
The XFL was sold to a group that included former WWE star Dwayne “The Rock’’ Johnson, giving the bankrupt football league the kind of star power that may draw even non-sports fans that it had before it had to shut its doors for the second time due to the global pandemic.
Johnson is said to have teamed up with Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital to buy the league just hours before a planned auction was scheduled to begin.
The XFL filed for bankruptcy in April after the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to closed their doors on the 2.0 version of the league.
McMahon announced the XFL’s reboot in 2018, and spent two years developing the eight-team league.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
