Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who saved the XFL from being auctioned off back in August, announced the league's official return on Thursday morning.
In a minute long video The Rock and his ex-wife and business partner, Dany Garcia, announced the XFL will be kicking off in the spring of 2022.
XFL returns SPRING 2022 🏈
As owners, we’re proud to champion our XFL players, coaches, cities and fans into an electrifying 2022 season!
It’s an uphill battle - but we’re hungry, humble and no one will outwork us.

With The Rock involved you know it's going to be a success. That's assuming everything is back to normal by then and the world isn't burning.
Hopefully by the time 2022 rolls around we're ready for spring football again.
