Hey Vince McMahon, can you smell what The Rock is cooking up? According to a report by Sportico, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is part of a group that has purchased the XFL for $15 million...
quote:

Johnson, an actor and producer who played college football at the University of Miami, teamed up with Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital to buy the league just hours before a planned auction was scheduled to begin.

They paid $15 million, splitting it evenly. Johnson’s business partner, Dany Garcia, who is also his ex-wife, will be a stakeholder as well.

RedBird has made a litany of sports-related investments, including some with ties to the National Football League and its players.

The entire league for only $15mil... seems like a deal. Hell, all he needs to do is star in a kids movie and he will have his half covered.

If he would run the league the right way I would be on board, but this dude sold out to Hollywood a long time ago.
