Vince McMahon founded XFL almost two decades ago. But for some reason or the other couldn’t push it to great heights as he did with his pro wrestling promotion, WWE. In early 2020 he tried to relaunch the league, but it went bankrupt before even a ball was kicked. Therefore, he had to sell it. Dwayne Johnson and his ex-wife, Dany Garcia, along with Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital, bought it from him for $15 million. The entire deal took place for $15 million in August 2020. The following year, in 2023, another XFL season took place and this time it saw significant results.
