It sounds like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s daughter, Simone is planning on following a career path similar to his! More precisely, the 18 year old is apparently training to become a WWE star just like her father who first made a name for himself in the ring before moving on to an equally successful acting career.
In a press release, it was confirmed that Simone, who is one of Dwayne’s oldest children, has started her training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando in hopes of walking in her dad’s footsteps.
It seems like that is the perfect place to help her achieve her goal since it is also where other huge names in the industry including John Cena and the Bella Twins have mastered their enviable skills.
Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque, who is the Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative stated that ‘Simone Johnson’s incredible passion and drive has earned her a spot training with the elite athletes from all around the world at the WWE Performance Center. Not only does she now have an opportunity to cultivate and to display her passion for WWE within the Performance Center, but she will carry on the tradition of her family lineage while creating her own impact as WWE’s first fourth generation Superstar.’
Furthermore, Simone herself also took to her Instagram account to share the news, posting a pic of herself wearing the WWE Performance Center gear.
In the caption, she wrote: ‘To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling and said ‘this will be my life one day’, this is for you. I am humbled, grateful and ready to work. Let’s do this.’
About the opportunity of becoming the fourth in her family to follow this career path, Simone said: ‘It means the world to me. To know my family has such a personal connection with wrestling is very special to me and I feel really grateful to have the opportunity, not just to wrestle, but to carry on that legacy.’
