Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a proud papa. His oldest daughter has signed a contract to become a WWE pro wrestler.
Simone Alexandra Johnson is following in the family’s pro-wrestling footsteps like her father and his father before him. The Rock told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, “She wound up being the youngest signee in the history of the company and you know it blows my mind. She wants to blaze her own path. I’m very very proud of her.” (People)
Three months ago, Simone commented on the importance of following her ancestors into the business (quote) “I feel grateful to have the opportunity, not only to wrestle, but to carry on that legacy.” (Entertainment Tonight)
