Dwayne Johnson, who teamed with Dany Garcia and RedBird Capital Partners to acquire the XFL over the summer, says the football league will take 2021 off but plans to return in 2022. “It’s an uphill battle,” Johnson wrote in a tweet, “but we’re hungry, humble and no one will outwork us.”
Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and RedBird Capital have acquired the XFL. Founded by WWE CEO Vince McMahon, the football league was scheduled to go bankruptcy auction today, but Johnson, Garcia and RedBird acquired its parent company, Alpha Entertainment, for approximately $15 million.
Dwayne Johnson will make his first appearance on the show in several years when it debuts Friday on the broadcast network.
