Dwayne Johnson to Headline NFL XFL Partnership, XFL commissioner Dwayne Johnson has announced the formal partnership between the XFL and the NFL, with the latter league set to be a petri dish for the former. The new collaboration will be officially announced at an XFL press conference this Friday afternoon. In an official statement, the XFL announced it would collaborate with the NFL on select innovation programs, in particular during the offseason when there is little on-field football to draw upon.
NFL & XFL Joint Venture
The National Football League (NFL) and its formerly-rival professional football league, The Xtreme Football League (XFL), have today announced a formal joint venture. The agreement will see both leagues collaborate on select innovation programs with Dwayne The Rock Johnson acting as a liaison between both parties. A representative for Mr. Johnson would not elaborate on what these innovations might entail but do confirm that it’s more than just PR.
Earlier in 2019 reports had emerged claiming that certain aspects of both organizations would be combined under Mr. Johnson’s guidance; today’s news confirms those rumors to be true. A statement from Mr. Johnson confirmed he was thrilled to join forces with both entities: I am thrilled by [the] opportunity to work closely with both organizations [in an advisory capacity]. Technology is changing almost everything about our lives – except sport itself.
It’s time that changes, too. Reaction among fans has been mixed so far, but most appear excited at seeing two such giants of American sports team up against overseas competition such as FIFA and NBA 2K.
This new partnership is great news! enthused one fan after reading further into today’s announcement, I haven’t watched any professional American sports since my local team folded back in 2017. This gives me renewed hope. Another is less convinced, however: This sounds like nonsense, opines ESPN analyst Sean McVay, The NFL and XFL are completely different games played by different rules… how could they possibly collaborate effectively? Stay tuned for further details as they emerge…
NFL & XFL Collaboration
In a press conference today, Dwayne Johnson announced that he would serve as head of football operations for The XFL (Xtreme Football League), an expansion league to be operated under a partnership with both the National Football League and World Wrestling Entertainment. With Dwayne’s involvement, The XFL has big plans to revolutionize American football on and off the field by combining elements of professional wrestling into play.
While many fans were skeptical of these plans at first, they became even more shocked when commissioner He Hate Me Steve McDill stated in his opening statement that fuck is not just a word we will say on our network; it is how we are going to kick your fucking ass every Sunday!
McDill then smiled and slammed a chair down onto his desk. After leaving without answering any questions from reporters, Mr. McMahon stood up from behind them and kicked everyone out of the room with loud trash talk before breaking character and exclaiming Man I am so happy right now! before slamming an entire table over on its side. This moment left everyone in shock until former MLB player Bobby Bonds ran out of another room yelling HE DID IT! THAT MAN IS CRAZY!
At which point The Rock made his way back through the door holding some papers in one hand and punching what looked like Alice Eve repeatedly in her face with his other arm while Yelling SUCK ON THIS MOTHERFUCKERS WE ARE GONNA MAKE YOU LOVE FOOTBALL WITH OUR BODIES AND OUR BRAINS!. At which point three older gentlemen standing outside seemed visibly confused for about two seconds before asking if anyone wanted to go get some tacos or something.
Details of the Agreement
The details of the agreement are as follows: The two leagues will collaborate on several projects, with a petri dish approach. There’s no doubt that at some point soon you’ll see our teams playing in their stadiums and vice versa, said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on ESPN’s Outside The Lines. We have ongoing discussions about things we can do together — literally next year.
What I love about Vince is he really wants us to help him grow, so what he wants from us is access to business expertise for marketing and sponsorship [and] access to technology for fan engagement. He does not want us investing in his league; he wants advice on how to grow his league.
He’s very clear with where he sees football going … 20 years from now there may be more than one professional football league here, said New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. This content could be sold on its own (i.e., live events), but it’s also used to build traffic and backlinks to another piece of content (live event).
For example, it could link back to an infographic posted earlier in which they explain why they believe creating a co-branding partnership is a good idea. That being said, when looking at brand mentions, one should look for them across all mediums – social media networks like Twitter or Facebook would likely make sense as well.
When Will This Take Place?
Over in America, their football league—the National Football League (NFL)—have announced that they’re going to be forming a partnership with another league—the Xtreme Football League (XFL). This isn’t a revival of that long-forgotten brand; it’s a new enterprise from WWE owner Vince McMahon, who helped start up WSE back in 2001.
Now, he’s launching an 8-team pro-American football league in 2020. It makes sense for him to link up with old pal Roger Goodell at such an early stage; and as soon as we have any more information on when, where, and how you can get involved you can bet we’ll let you know! Keep an eye out for updates. As Soon As We Have Any More Information On When, Where And How You Can Get Involved:
When will there be further news about Dwayne Johnson joining forces with NFL? Will there be a time scale? A deadline by which further news will be revealed or published? As soon as we have any more information on when…you can bet we’ll let you know! is best practice here. Would you want to keep checking your browser each day until then? Probably not.
So instead, use a when-clause modifier: As soon as we have any more information on when… The inclusion of when informs readers you are likely to update them again within that period. However, don’t make promises you can’t keep. Instead, say as soon as and try your hardest to achieve it.
