XFL now in the hands of Dany Garcia, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and RedBird Capital

Post by MarkNelson » Fri Aug 21, 2020 12:52 pm

(21 August 2020) Statement from the XFL:

Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson and RedBird Capital Partners announced that the acquisition of the XFL was closed and the new ownership group has officially assumed full control of the XFL and its assets.

We want to thank those who helped make this possible behind the scenes, including: Grant Tani Barash & Altman; PJT Partners; Sidley Austin LLP; Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP; Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP; and Houlihan Lokey.


With this news, the XFL can continue under new ownership.

New owner Dany Garcia broadcasted her remarks on social media, along with a graphic representing the owner’s “key” to the league, just as the change of ownership was made official. The blade of the key bore her silhouette.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also took to social media to announce his pleasure in the transition of ownership being complete. He also sent out an image of his own key to the league, with the key blade bearing his own silhouette.

I could give a Rats Azz about the keys, less talk and symbolism, more action. Being the owner (man or woman) means nothing. Being a SUCCESS - THEN you can toot the horn

I would argue that The Rock and Dany Garcia have nothing to prove in the success arena.
Fan of the XFL from the beginning. You may remember me from the original XFLboard.

That wasn't my point, my point was specific to the XFL - it irrelevant if you are the first woman owner. There has to be some substantive success ( a season?) before being a woman owner of a sports league is relevant. And I want this group to succeed, believe me.
