Re: XFL: When, what, if? Is the next step?

Are they starting from scratch? Is the basic structure that Vince McMahon put in place still there for Rock to work from? Or is this gonna be a complete new startup again?

Re: The Rock owned XFL needs to address the Elephant in the room: Social Justice

One thing the big league isnt worried about..... revenue. They can put on their games in front of empty stands because ticket revenue isnt what pays the bills.

Re: XFL reality show

Re: Will the XFL play in a Covid free bubble?

I wonder how Rock and Dany are planning to present this. Whether there's gonna be a "reality" storytelling "making dreams come true" profiling element. Kinda like the XFL meets the Titan Games.

Re: XFL players signing with NFL teams tracker

In the battle for football's ultimate journeyman qb..... it looks as though Josh Johnson is getting another look by the 49ers after putting on a solid performance with the Wildcats. If the Niners sign him it will be the second time for Josh. And while Josh has worn the most uniforms....I think Ryan ...

Re: Could the new owners sell off individual teams?

Now that players are so rich ....NOT rich enough for the NFL because that's all super billionaires now.....but rich enough to run an XFL team for sure. And perhaps Rock is somewhat better connected to those ex players looking for a Freedom Football League to start up but never will. Example: Russel...

Re: RedBird Capital, Dany Garcia, and The Rock to buy XFL for $15M

I'd like to think that the Rock's continued association with WWE would suggest that Vince could still somehow be involved. But one think about Dwayne.....this isn't simply a passion play for him..... he sees something in this.....so I'm sure we'll see something.
