Dwayne Johnson Is 'Very Proud' of Daughter Simone for Signing with WWE: It 'Blows My Mind'
“It means the world to me,” Simone said in a statement released by the WWE. “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 was born into a family of WWE legends. Not only was her father a 10-time world champion, but her late grandfather, Rocky Johnson, and her great-grandfather, “High Chief” Peter Maivia, were both inducted into the Hall of Fame.
“Simone Johnson’s unbridled passion and incredible drive has earned her a coveted spot training with the elite athletes from around the world at the WWE Performance Center,” said WWE executive vice president Paul “Triple H” Levesque at the time.
“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,” Levesque added.
Johnson has been nothing but supportive in the past about his daughter potentially pursuing a career in wrestling. “Simone is working so hard – and her work has already started — she wants to be a WWE Wrestler,” he said during an appearance on Good Morning America in 2018.
