Everyone thinks Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will turn the XFL into ‘Ballers’

“Ballers” came to life on Monday when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson bought the XFL, according to Sportico.

The former WWE superstar, who played Spencer Strasmore, a financial manager for NFL players on the hit HBO show, teamed up with Gerry Cardinale’s investment company RedBird Capital to purchase the league for $ 15 million.

From Sportico:

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

They paid $ 15 million and split it evenly. Johnson’s business partner, Dany Garcia, who is also his ex-wife, will be an equal stakeholder with him. “

While “Ballers” ended in 2019 after five seasons, everyone is ready to give Johnson season 6 with the XFL.

Johnson already had a connection to the XFL because he dropped promos for the original league.

This is going to be fun.
