Simone Johnson, the daughter of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Dany Garcia, has officially signed and started training with WWE.

According to People, the WWE announced the news on Monday, releasing a statement from Simone in which the 18-year-old 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."

Simone later took to Instagram writing, "To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling and said 'This will be my life one day', this is for you.

"I’m humbled, grateful and ready to work. Let’s do this," she said.


Simone is the first fourth-generation Superstar in WWE history, according to CNN. She’ll be following in the footsteps of her father, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, her grandfather who recently died, Rocky 'Soul Man' Johnson and her great-grandfather, Peter Maivia. Her mother, Dany Garcia, an American film producer, is also a trained bodybuilder.

Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to share a sweet message with his firstborn.

"Dreams ain’t just for dreamers," he wrote. "Congrats to my #1 born, Simone Johnson on officially signing her wrestling contract with @wwe @wwenxt and on her way to becoming the first-ever fourth-generation WWE athlete."

"Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn and own. So proud. Live your dream. Let’s work."
