Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just bought a football league. Specifically, the recently rebooted XFL.
He’s not content with being one of the most recognisable stars on the planet. Nor is he happy to sit and admire a business empire that already covers movies, bodybuilding shows and gym apparel. Oh no, The Rock has sniffed out another potential hit to add his magic to.
With his longtime business partner and ex-wife, Dany Garcia, Johnson completed the purchase for a paltry $15m.
The announcement of the deal was made on Johnson’s personal Instagram account.
