Dwayne Johnson Explains Why He Turned Down Emmy Hosting Gig

Dwayne Johnson passed on hosting this year’s Emmy awards and now he’s explaining why.

The WWE star turned most in demand actor in Hollywood says the reason is simple, “It was just schedule. I was really, truly honored when they came to me and asked, but it was just a scheduling thing. That’s all. That’s really what it comes down to.”

Rumors were flying that the award show asked the “Moana” actor to co-host with Chris Rock. He is said to have also turned it down due to scheduling. So far no host has been announced, but there is time since the awards are in September.
