Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has proclaimed, “The XFL is back.”
The producer, wrestler, actor, and XFL owner released a hype tape to let fans know that the football league will be back in 2022.
The Rock and his business partner Dany Garcia voiced the hype tape with the new date after first saying the league would return with a “bubble format” in 2021.
“The opportunity in front of us, with our new ownership, is simply too big to rush back,” Rock said.

THE XFL RETURNS SPRING 2022 🏈 As owners, we’re proud to champion our XFL players, coaches, cities and fans into an electrifying 2022 season! I’m so inspired to put in the work because football always represented an opportunity to me. Opportunity to take care of my family. And even though my dreams of playing pro football never came true – I’m in the exciting and humbling position to create opportunities for players so their dreams can come true. It’s an uphill battle – but we’re hungry, humble and no one will outwork us. A league of culture, passion & purpose ✊🏾 We are the XFL and we’re back spring 2022! #XFL 🏈 #owner @danygarciaco #redbirdcapital
