Simone Johnson will be taking the Johnson family’s legacy forward as she becomes the first fourth-generation wrestler in all of history

Wrestling fans rejoice as there is a new girl coming to the field. And it’s none other than one you already know. Simone Johnson, daughter of wrestling legend, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, is all set to make her WWE debut. The young one has begun training to become a professional wrestler with WWE and will be following her father’s footsteps and also her grandfather Rocky “Soul Man” Johnson. She’ll also be the first woman from the family, after her great-grandfather Peter Maivia to enter the field. This means that when she completes training, Simone will become the first-ever fourth-generation wrestler in WWE history – not just her family. Talk about making headlines already!

Simone took to Instagram to share the news. She said, “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.” She will be trained by WWE head coach Matt Bloom, who commented, “Simone knows she has a lot to learn. She’s hungry to learn and picks the coaches’ minds, and the veteran Superstars’, as well. She’s not going to rest on her laurels. It’s been a short time, but she’s been crushing it.” In 2019, Dwayne officially retired from pro wrestling. He is now busy with films and film production.

However, the star was over the moon when Simone announced that she wanted to get into wrestling. Sharing a heartfelt note on Instagram, he wrote, “Dreams ain’t just for dreamers. Congrats to my first born, Simone Johnson on officially signing her wrestling contract with WWE, WWENXT and on her way to becoming the first ever 4th 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.”
