Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson buys XFL for $15 million

Johnson and investment firm RedBird Capital bought the defunct football league for $15 million, hours before it was set to be auctioned

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is now the owner of the XFL.

Johnson and Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital bought the decommissioned football league for $15 million, hours before it was set to be auctioned. The deal was first reported by Sportico.

“With pride and gratitude for all that I’ve built with my own two hands, I plan to apply these callouses to the XFL and look forward to creating something specials for the players, fans, and everyone involved for the love of football,” Johnson told ESPN.

Johnson, an actor and professional wrestler, played college football at the University of Miami before playing a short time in the Canadian Football League.
