Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s daughter is set to make WWE debut

Simone Johnson, the daughter of WWE fame Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, has decided to follow a family tradition and has begun training with the WWE, according to a report.

Not only was her father, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a former WWE wrestler, but also her grandfather and great-grandfather, CNN reported.

This makes her the first fourth-generation wrestler in the history of the WWE.

“So proud,” Johnson wrote of his 18-year-old daughter on Instagram. “Live your dream. Let’s work.”

 “To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & said ‘this will be my life one day,’ this is for you,” Johnson shared on Instagram, adding, “I’m humbled, grateful & ready to work. Let’s do this.”

“Simone is a wonderful girl,” said WWE assistant head coach Sara Amato in a statement, according to CNN. “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.”

Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson and Peter Maivia, Simone Johnson’s grandfather and great-grandfather, are both a part of the WWE Hall of Fame.

“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 Johnson said in a statement, according to HuffPost.
