The Rock and Dany Garcia’s Athleticon Allegedly Postponed to April 2022

The Rock and Dany Garcia’s Athleticon has been allegedly postponed to 2022.

It looks like The Rock and Dany Garcia’s Athleticon won’t be happening in October after all. After many reports stating that the show would take place later this year, a new report alleges that the Athleticon has been postponed to April 2022.

The 2021 Olympia was recently announced to be taking place in October. With the Athleticon’s original date being in October, many thought that the two events would end up competing.

But with so much at stake for their first show, it would appear that the runners of the Athleticon, The Rock and Dany Garcia, decided that moving the date to April 2022.

The event is the brainchild of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Dany Garcia. Much like the Arnold Sports Festival, Athleticon is set to put on multiple different events. The much-anticipated event will not only feature bodybuilding competitions, but it will also have other sports and fitness activities center stage.

This gives The Rock and Dany Garcia even more time to make some solid preparations and potentially make the show even bigger in the wake of this harrowing world crisis.

Athleticon will feature events such as NPC Worldwide International World Championships, UFC Fan Experience and so much more. Celebrity appearances are expected by Julianne Hough among many others.

Robin Chang, former head promoter for the Olympia, is now spearheading events for Athleticon and Icon World classic.

As a big time fan of bodybuilding for years, The Rock for has always thought of dipping his toes into promoting and has finally made the leap. According to our sources the former WWE superstar had been negotiating to buy part of the Europa Games. After promoting the Olympia back in 2016 and 2017 The Rock went on and launched Athleticon with Robin Chang.
