Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could not be a prouder father. With his daughter, Simone Johnson, starting on a path to become WWE’s first-ever fourth-generation Superstar by beginning training at the WWE Performance Center, The Rock shared a message of congratulations on Instagram.
“Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn & own,” he wrote. “So proud. Live your dream. Let’s work.”
The 18-year-old is on a path to become the first fourth-generation Superstar in WWE history, coming from a line of legends that includes her great-grandfather and grandfather, WWE Hall of Famers “High Chief” Peter Maivia and Rocky Johnson, and her father.
“It means the world to me,” Johnson said. “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.”
Johnson will join the diverse group of Superstars in training at the Performance Center, learning from a coaching staff that includes legends of the squared circle, led by Head Coach Matt Bloom and Assistant Head Coach Sara Amato.
