Dwayne Johnson is using some of that movie money to live out his “Ballers” character’s life in the real world.
The Rock announced on twitter that he and his business partners went in together to purchase the XFL, a spring time professional football league, for a measly $15 million.
With my trail blazing partner @DanyGarciaCo & Red Bird Capital, we have acquired the XFL.
With gratitude & passion I’ve built a career with my own two hands and will apply these callouses to our @xfl2020 brand.
Excited to create something special for the fans! #XFL #fullcircle pic.twitter.com/LprJ6HjglD

That is a super low number for an entire football league, in fact there are players in the NFL that make more than that in a single season!
Hopefully they can get back to playing next season since their inaugural season was cut short due to COVID-19.
