Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the busiest stars in Hollywood. The Great One’s popularity transcended WWE years ago. The Rock capitalized on the success to start new business ventures, one of which is XFL.
For those not in the know, the XFL was a disastrous attempt by WWE mastermind Vince McMahon to introduce a new take on football. McMahon poured millions into the league, which folded after its first season. This was the case on two occasions, only a pandemic stopped the league’s 2020 return in its tracks.
The Rock took to his Instagram on Sunday and shared a glimpse into XFL’s practice session at Jackson State University in Mississippi. The Great One also talked about the XFL culture in another video.
Sweltering Mississippi heat and you could feel the mana and vibe of the harshest workers on the field.
Great job of intense, focused EFFORT from our players.
Sideline sideline, hash to hash.
The Rock bought the XFL in 2020. On December 2, 2021, it was revealed on Dany Garcia’s Instagram page that the 2023 XFL Season would start on February 18, 2023. Training camp will commence on January 4, 2023.
