‘I am excited for our players’: Dwayne Johnson says he will visit SA for XFL opener
On Sunday, the San Antonio Brahmas, the reborn XFL team in San Antonio, will kick off their 2023 season with a game against the St. Louis Battlehawks. Excitement is building for the opener, and it has been confirmed that former professional wrestler and current Hollywood star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, will be in attendance at the Alamodome to witness the game.
Dwayne Johnson took to Twitter on Thursday to announce his visit to San Antonio for the XFL season opener. Not only will he be present for this game, but he will also attend the other three XFL games taking place over the weekend. Additionally, sources have confirmed that Johnson is expected to make an announcement regarding this year’s XFL championship game.
The San Antonio Brahmas, under the ownership of Dwayne Johnson, his business partner and ex-wife Dany Garcia, and RedBird Capital Partners, were purchased for $15 million in August 2020. This acquisition came after the XFL suspended its season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently declared bankruptcy. The reformed team is now led by Hall of Fame Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward.
The San Antonio Brahmas’ game against the St. Louis Battlehawks will kick off at 2 p.m. as they begin their new season. Fans can learn more about the Brahmas and their game schedule for this season on their official website.
With Dwayne Johnson’s presence and ownership involvement, there is a buzz surrounding the San Antonio Brahmas’ season opener and the XFL as a whole. Fans are eager to see how the team performs under its new leadership and look forward to an exciting and successful XFL season.
