XFL to return in 2022

The XFL has now been resurrected twice, and the league's new ownership group -- fronted by The Rock -- announced Thursday it will begin in 2022.

This will be the third attempt to build the XFL brand. The league originally launched to much fanfare in 2001, but played just one season at that time. Vince McMahon brought it back in 2020, completely unaware that was the worst possible timing to begin a spring football league.

McMahon shut the league down again earlier this year, but a new ownership group bought the league and it will now come back again in 18 months or so.

Hopefully the third time's the charm. It's unlikely there will be a fourth.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
