By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

The XFL has hired Russ Brandon as President, Football and League Operations. The league also announced the hiring of eight additional executives in a press release available via

Powell’s POV: Brandon worked for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills organization for over twenty years, meaning there’s a decent chance that he’s actually put himself through as many tables as his boss Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (it’s a Bills Mafia thing). Brandon also worked for RedBird Capital Partners, which owns the XFL along with Johnson and Dany Garcia. The league intends to relaunch for a 2023 season.
