Just as we’re seeing the USFL and XFL come full circle as they come together as one, we also have one of the owners heavily involved in the WWE.
This is not a bad thing.
Johnson started his career in football, only making the jump to the WWE after a rough go in the CFL. As the story goes, he only had 7 dollars left after being cut from the CFL. After becoming a household name in the WWE Johnson made the jump to the big screen. Fast forward to present day and he owns a production company named Seven Bucks Productions, owns a football league and now sits on the board of directors for the parent company that led him down this path.
We may be heading into the first season of the UFL, but it’s hard to dismiss that it feels like a continuation of all the the spring football leagues we’ve seen since the XFL in 2020.
