Simone Johnson, the daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dany Garcia, has signed with the WWE.
WWE made the announcement on Monday after signing the 18-year-old to a contract. Johnson will look to become the first-ever fourth generation WWE superstar after her great grandfather “High Chief” Peter Maivia and grandfather Rocky Johnson, both WWE Hall of Famers.
Speaking on her WWE signing, 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.”
WWE executive, Triple H said: “Simone’s unbridled passion and incredible drive has earned her a coveted spot training with the elite athletes at the WWE Performance Center
Not only does Simone now have an opportunity to cultivate and display her passion for WWE within the Performance Center, but she’ll carry on the tradition of her incredible family lineage while creating her own impact as WWE’s first fourth-generation Superstar.”
Johnson still has plenty of training to do at the WWE Performance Center before she makes her debut in the ring. Her program will include learning from veteran coaches, and she’s sure to get plenty of support from her famous dad.
