The daughter of wrestling legend, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is set to continue her family’s legacy.

Simone Johnson, 18, has started training with WWE – following in the footsteps not just of her dad but her grandad, and her great-grandad too.

She will be the first fourth-generation superstar in WWE history.

“It means the world to me,” Simone said in a statement. “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.”

Her training has already started alongside other future wrestling stars at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
