Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Buys XFL for $15 Million with Investment Group

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is part of a group that just purchased the XLF, the bankrupt football league based in the USA.

The sale went down for $15 million and was split evenly. Dwayne‘s business partner and ex wife Dany Garcia was also involved and will be a shareholder.
