Purchase of the XFL complete

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to social media today to announce that the purchase of the XFL by him, ex-wife and business partner Dany Garcia, and Gerry Cardinale has been completed.

Earlier this month, Johnson announced that he had purchased the XFL before it went into bankruptcy court for $15 million with Dany Garcia and RedBird Capital.

In February 2020, the then Vince McMahon owned XFL made its return after a disastrous first try in 2001. The new vision of the league debuted to mostly positive feedback and good ratings before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the league to shut down.

The league would declare bankruptcy shortly after and cease operations.
