The hype is brewing as news of the XFL’s sale to Dany Garcia and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spreads. (Doesn’t Garcia & The Rock sound like a great sitcom title? Just me? Nevermind)
As the sports world reacts, Dana White has weighed in on the league’s prospects this year. His take?
Put it on TV as soon as humanly possible. In an interview with TMZ sports, he said:
“I’d try to get that rolling as fast as possible…people are dying for live sports programming…even if the NFL does go, it’s another option for live sports on TV, and there’s not enough on right now.”
While the general idea is to get started in springtime, White’s urgency proves one thing: the iron is hot, and it’s time to strike.
With the MLB’s early struggles to contend with COVID outside the bubble, some are questioning how the NFL season will go. Even if things go off without a hitch for the 2020 NFL season, its entirely possible that the XFL could be the first sports league to play with fans in the stands when all this is over.
Dana White, who pioneered the UFC’s massive success also has ideas about managing COVID and is willing to share with his friend, The Rock. If a bubble is needed, could we see football island?
These two have a great friendship going back years, and I’m sure the XFL could use some of his wisdom that got the UFC off the ground.
White is a guy who built a $500 Million empire, and we’ve gotten a ringing endorsement from him on the league’s new ownership.
“He can definitely pull this off”
He also mentioned a crucial aspect to all this. RedBird Capital, the group backing Garcia & the Rock manages over $4 Billion in assets. They have extensive experience in the sports sphere, and their expertise will be invaluable as the new ownership rebuilds.

My question is would the XFL 3.0 or 2.5 be better if it became the new Arena Fòotball League?? 8 teams in 8 cities, but the fast action and high scoring that the arena league gave us??
It would also be perfect for a XFL bubble.
