XFL Co-Owners The Rock & Dany Garcia To Appear on ESPN Get Up Tomorrow

News from the XFL this week keeps churning. First, we had the XFL and NFL partnership. Today was Dean Blandino‘s return to the league. Tomorrow April 13th, XFL co-owner Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson and XFL co-owner and Chairwoman Dany Garcia will appear on ESPN’s Get Up.

“Tomorrow, we’re getting up with @GetUpESPN, 8–⁠10AM ET. Tune in to catch @DanyGarciaCo and @TheRock talk #XFL2023 with @Espngreeny.”

Get Up is the ESPN morning talk show hosted by Mike Greenberg. 

The question in many fans’ minds is what they will talk about on the program. Clearly, they will discuss the purchase of the XFL in August 2020, working with the NFL, the rebranding, and recent hires. Could they talk XFL cities as well or a timeline for announcements?

The friendliness between The Rock and ESPN goes back to when he appeared in the Manningcast several months ago. Could they talk TV deal on the show? 

In 2020 ABC and ESPN were part of the TV package. Fox and FS1 were also part of the deal, but now they own the USFL. 

The XFL’s recent partnership with the NFL leads fans to believe XFL games could appear on the NFL Network. Is this something they discuss tomorrow? Here is what the XFL announcement timeline looked like leading up to the 2020 kick-off.

The original XFL timeline for 2020 had the following;

  • Oliver Luck named commissioner and CEO – June 5, 2018
  • Eight host cities and stadiums – December 5, 2018
  • TV Deal – May 6, 2019
  • Signed first player Landry Jones – August 15, 2019
  • Team names and logos – August 21, 2019
  • XFL draft – October 15, 2019

Instead of a TV deal tomorrow, maybe we get cites or nothing, just what we know already. However, judging from the flurry of XFL announcements over the last week, I don’t think they will leave fans empty-handed.
