Dwayne Johnson was visibly emotional as he took the podium and started the speech. He said, “Man, I wish I had one more shot. I wish I had one more shot to say goodbye, to say I love you, to say thank you, but I have a feeling he’s watching. He’s listening.” Speaking about how he found out about his dad’s demise, Dwayne said, “I was on my way to work, the other day on Jan. 15 and I was just pulling into work and we were shooting that day and it was the very first day of production.” He said that it was his wife Lauren who called and told him that something’s going on with his dad. “Lauren was with our babies, she was with my mom and she said, ‘You know, I really can’t talk… I think you should call Cora though’.” He said he called Cora and that’s when she broke the news to him. “You know how you have those moments where you try and shake yourself out of it, and you’re like ‘No, it’s not a dream. My dad’s gone,’” he continued. ALSO READ: Dwayne Johnson Shares Emotional Tribute To Late Father Rocky Johnson: ‘You Were Ripped Away From Me So Fast’
