Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Dany Garcia & RedBird Capital Acquire XFL for $15 million

After a semi-successful revival and a pandemic-caused ending, the XFL is in new hands.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Dany Garcia (his ex-wife and business partner) and RedBird Capital teamed up to buy the league just hours before its auction started.

Sportico broke the news and reports this group’s bid was the only qualified bid, according to a court filing. Also, the acquisition is subject to “bankruptcy court approval” on Friday at a hearing. If closing conditions are accepted, the sale is expected to “close on or shortly after Aug. 21.”
