The XFL is starting to grow more and more.
One reason for the success of the league is because of owner Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Many know him as an actor and A-List celebrity, but he also played college football at Miami.
Johnson wants to see all players get a shot to pursue their dreams, so he bought the XFL.
So far this season, the XFL has been a big hit.
Johnson even mentioned how Sunday’s D.C. Defenders vs Arlington Renegades games were sold out.
Big, exciting day of @XFL2023 football coming out of our nation’s capital 🇺🇸
SOLD OUT @AudiField as our @XFLDefenders look to protect their house against the all business @XFLRenegades!
Gonna be a great game and I fully expect to break a #BeerSnake record today!!
👏🏾👏🏾🤣 🍺 🐍 https://t.co/BzWahoxPcs

Almost every American loves football, and the XFL is the place to go for spring football.
Even though most fans do not know many of the players, they still put on a good show.
Also, the games matter to each player.
They want to play well and show NFL scouts they can play in the league.
For this game, Johnson talked about how he expects to see a beer snake.
Those who attended the game did not let him down.

If you love watching NFL football, you should look to give the XFL a chance.
The game is a little different but still highly competitive.
It's gonna be awesome… Everyone go watch the game on ESPN or ESPN+

Johnson has done a great job at using his platform to increase the popularity of the XFL.
I'm so pumped for today's game. I wish I could be there, but I will definitely be watching as I enjoy a #CheatDay. Time to finish the season strong.#DefendDC #BeerSnake#XFL2023 https://t.co/vt5B1hdc37

Many D.C. Defenders fans are thrilled that Washington D.C. got a team.
They have a strong fan base and are a big reason for the sellout on Sunday.
WOOOOOO!!! Thank you @TheRock, @DanyGarciaCo & the @XFL2023 for keeping our DC @XFLDefenders in DC cause as you said Rocky we are…The Rowdiest Fans in all the XFL. We are passionate about our teams. #DefendDC #ShieldsUp 🛡 🏈 https://t.co/HGjctC6JBk
