BREAKING NEWS: @TheRock is the new part-owner of the XFL.
— Sportico (@Sportico) August 3, 2020
I’m not going to lie XFL Commissioner Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a nice ring to it. But you know what has an even better ring to it? XFL Commissioner/Tampa Bay Vipers Defensive End Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
I won’t sit here and act like this will get me to tune into a XFL game if/when they start up shop again but I can’t deny the fact that the XFL switching owners like it’s the WWF Championship is hilarious.
This might be the first big blemish on The Rock’s post wrestling career (Rampage and Ballers post S1 aside). Because if there’s one thing we all know it’s that the XFL is never going to make it.
Like I said before this won’t work even with The Rock at the helm and the only way I’m tuning in is if for their championship game they have The Rock fight all the other sports commissioners in a 4 vs 1 Steel Cage handicap match (with special guest referee Stone Cold Steve Austin).
Seeing Stone Cold Steve Austin give Goodell a Stone Cold Stunner That setups The Rock for a People’s Elbow is a wet dream for 99.9% of football fans.
