WWE: The Rock’s daughter to continue the family legacy

The rock reveals he and family had coronavirus

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s daughter will be continuing her family’s legacy by stepping into the ring. 

Simon Johnson, 18, has officially started training with WWW – just like her father, grandfather and great-grandfather. She will be the first fourth-generation superstar in WWE history. 

“It means the world to me,” Simone said in a statement. “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 has already started training alongside other future wrestlers at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. 

“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 Centre,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, executive vice president. 

The Rock posted on his Instagram: “Dreams ain’t just for dreamers … So proud Live your dream. Let’s work.”

Simone’s grandad, Rocky Johnson, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 75, was part of the first-ever black tag team to win a WWE championship. 

Simone certainly has a lot to live up to. But her proud parents have made sure she isn’t feeling any pressure. 

In his post, The Rock wrote his daughter’s journey “will always be [hers] to create, earn & own.”

Her mum added: “Your future will be uniquely yours to earn.”
