The Rock and daughter,Simone Johnson
Simone Johnson, the 18-year-old daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is planning to follow in the footsteps of her dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather into wrestling.
The WWE Network announced on Monday that Simone has signed with WWE and will begin training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando
She responded to the news on Instagram shortly after WWE, writing, “To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & said ‘this will be my life one day’, this is for you. I’m humbled, grateful & ready to work. Let’s do this.”
Simone Johnson also told WWE: “It means the world to me. To know that my family has such a personal connection to wrestling is really special to me and I feel grateful to have the opportunity, not only to wrestle but to carry on that legacy.”
“Simone knows she has a lot to learn,” WWE head trainer Matt Bloom said. “She’s hungry to learn and picks the coaches’ minds, and the veteran Superstars’, as well. She’s not going to rest on her laurels. It’s been a short time, but she’s been crushing it.”
Her father, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is the first third-generation wrestler in WWE history. He was an eight-time WWE heavyweight champion and one of the biggest stars in pro wrestling history.
Simone’s grandfather, WWE Hall of Famer Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson, was one of the two first African American World Tag Team Champions in WWE’s history. He died in January at age 75.
Her great-grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, started this dynasty of talented wrestlers.
