The XFL, an alternative to the NFL, was founded in 2000 by the WWE. It went away, but was determined to make a grand comeback in 2020. Well, COVID-19 had other plans. When COVID-19 arrived, the league filed for bankruptcy and that was that.
Now, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, his ex-wife, and a top sports management agency have teamed together to bring it back!! This new team of owners paid $15 million to bring the XFL back.
There is no word on when the XFL will resume play.
