Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson, who captured media attention with his comedy series ‘Young Rock,’ took to his verified Instagram account the other day to provide updates regarding the discussions between professional American football league XFL and The Canadian Football League CFL.
On March 10, the owner of XFL released a TBT photo of himself that sees him in a football jersey and stated that CFL changed his life, even though his dreams in the league did not come close to coming true. The Rock wrote:
“You become the hardest worker in the room. You will not be denied. I knew in my heart I was going to make it in the CFL – and parlay that into a very successful career in the NFL. Maybe even win a Super Bowl… But neither of those dreams came close to coming true.”
Then he said that CFL sent him home cause he was not good enough to achieve it, however, he was still thankful to Wally Buono for even giving him the opportunity when he “had $7 bucks.” The former wrestler continued by saying that he is back now:
“As an owner of the XFL, our discussions with the CFL have been very exciting. There’s a real pulse here because you can feel the unique opportunity we can potentially create together. Wherever it all leads, I can tell you this one is personal to me and is driven by all my passion.”
Stating that being cut by the CFL was the greatest thing that happened, the actor admitted that led him right back to the league to help create “bigger opportunities for all our players and all our fans.” Describing himself as an owner whose hands in the dirt, The Rock concluded his words as follows:
“My loyalty will always lie with the players and fans. I’ll keep you posted as our XFL/CFL discussions unfold. Got your back. So yes, the CFL changed my life, in ways I could’ve never imagined 🙏🏾 🇨🇦 🏈”
