Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Buying XFL Doesn’t Guarantee League’s Success
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson's purchasing the XFL is a cause for excitement. At the least, it is infinitely more interesting than an anonymous hedge-fund manager emerging as the new face of the bankrupt spring football league.
But Johnson’s off-field star power will mean little if the XFL can’t find better talent. Low-scoring games and sloppy play will continue to repel the masses, regardless of who’s sitting in the league’s executive suite.
