Vince McMahon tried to bring back the XFL in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped their season only a few games in. Then The Rock and his business partners bought the league. A 2022 season was announced, but it is now on hold pending some big talks to join forces with the CFL.

The XFL Twitter account shocked fans today when they announced that the 2022 season is on hold. They are talking about collaborating with the Canadian Football League, and that could change the game completely.

The Canadian Football League (CFL) and XFL have entered into formal talks to identify potential opportunities for the leagues to collaborate, innovate, and grow the game of football.

The XFL 2022 Season is on hold pending the outcome of our conversations with the CFL.


The XFL saga continues, and it looks like they’re going Canadian. This failed football league isn’t dead yet, and The Rock is very good at negotiating.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
