Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson almost made it to Davao City for a special appearance with the WWE Event in the Kadayawan Festival in August last year.
“Gusto niya ma meet si Digong sa Davao” (He wants to meet Digong in Davao), said promoter Rey Rodis.
Digong is Pres. Rody Duterte.
The Samoan Dynasty, who are all cousins of Johnson was supposed to perform in the WWE Event.
“Guba ko last year. No income dako lugi sa advances sa events na cancel tanan,” (I lost last year. No income big loss in advances in events cancel all), said Rodis.
They were supposed to have seven boxing and 15 WWE Events but were cancelled here. Five city tour in Mindanao – Davao, Tagum, Digos, Cagayan de Oro and Zambaonga, and 10 city tour in Manila for the WWE Event.
“Natagaan na ug advances ug plane tickets, hotels, vans, etc. akong nabayran. Wala pa nako nakuha ang refund,” (Advances and plane tickets, hotels, vans, etc. have been provided. I paid. I have not yet received the refund), said Rodis.
Rodis was scheduled to go back to the US on March 22 but was cancelled already because of the lockdown.
