Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s Daughter Simone Training For WWE
11 February 2020 Entertainment
Simone Johnson, daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is in training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla., to become the WWE’s first fourth-generation wrestler.
The legacy also includes her great-grandfather and grandfather, WWE Hall of Famers High Chief Peter Maivia and Rocky Johnson.
“It means the world to me,” Johnson said about his 18-year-old daughter, “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.”
The movie star has been encouraging his firstborn to take on her birthright.
“I love the idea. We had this big conversation, she came with me to Hong Kong [and] Beijing,” he told Good Morning America in 2018. “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.”
Already those in her corner believe she has what it takes to continue the family heritage.
“Simone is a wonderful girl,” WWE Assistant Head Coach Sara Amato said in a statement. “She’s like a sponge, it’s pretty amazing. She knows what it takes to succeed and all the hard work and sacrifice that goes into it. I wouldn’t have expected anything less.”
