Like father like daughter: Dwayne Johnson's daughter is heading to WWE
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's daughter Simone, seems to be following in her father's footsteps. The Hollywood star and former WWE wrestler took to social media to share the news that his daughter Simone Alexandra has joined the WWE family.
"She signed her contract with the WWE, it just blows my mind," Johnson told Jimmy Fallon via video chat on Friday's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
"First of all, I mean, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps. But more importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliché, but she actually wants to blaze her own path, which is just so important. She wound up being the youngest signee in the history of the company, by the way."
The Rock recently put out a video of his daughter Simone Johnson training. He also said there’s only one place he’d trust his daughter learning to wrestle, and that’s with family aka The McMahons.
Here's footage of Johnson and his daughter in training at the WWE Performance Centre.

Challenge yourself to greatness, listen to your gut, check your ego at the door, be kind, be grateful and always block out the noise. These were my principles I applied to my pro wrestling career. But I also learned to apply them to something much bigger than wrestling or Hollywood life. I want you to do the same. Good luck, thank you for your time and always be the hardest workers in the room. And most of all, have fun. #squaredcircleDNA #nxt #peopleschamp @jonbrandoncruz
She is now the first fourth generation WWE star.
People.com reports that her father is 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.
