XFL owner Dwayne Johnson praises ex-NFL quarterback for taking ‘less money’ to ‘create memories’ for kids

Feb 24, 2023

Former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback A. J. McCarron has hit the ground running in his first season in the XFL, leading the St. Louis Battlehawks to two thrilling comeback victories for a 2-0 start.

Aside from his performance on the field, McCarron received praise from XFL owner Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on Friday because of his decision to leave the NFL to pursue a career where he could "create memories" with his two young boys.

"Takes less money signing with us over the NFL because he wanted his little boys to see him play," Johnson said of McCarron in a tweet earlier Friday morning.

"Now he’s 2-0 and led his team to back-to-back exciting last minute wins. I’d say he’s creating some memories for his boys. AJ’s decision means a helluva lot to me, personally."
