Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took to Twitter just a few minutes ago to make a major announcement. In the announcement, he stated that the XFL will be returning in 2022:
XFL returns SPRING 2022 🏈
As owners, we’re proud to champion our XFL players, coaches, cities and fans into an electrifying 2022 season!
It’s an uphill battle – but we’re hungry, humble and no one will outwork us.
— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) October 1, 2020
This is the first breaking announcement since he acquired the bankrupt organization from Vince McMahon through a bidding process in August of this year.
Jason’s Jest: I’m excited for the return of XFL. This past attempt was doing really well until COVID-19 derailed everything. Hopefully that will continue in 2022.
