February 11, 2020
Simone Johnson, daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is following her father’s footsteps.
The 18-year-old is currently training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando to join the WWE. She will become the first fourth-generation wrestler.
Interestingly, her great-grandfather High Chief Peter Maivia and grandfather Rocky Johnson were also in the WWE. In an interview Simone said, “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.”
On how Papa Johnson feels, he said “I love the idea. We had this big conversation, she came with me to Hong Kong and Beijing,” and “I said, ‘Honey, whatever your passion is, I support that.’ And wrestling was good to me, I started my career in Madison Square Garden. So, yeah, bring it on, she’s going to be a champ.”
On Monday, Simone posted “For the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & was determined to make this dream a reality – this is for you. I’m beyond thankful for this opportunity & ready to get after it. Let’s do this.”
