Dwayne Johnson Feels Proud Seeing Her Daughter Simone Join WWE

WWE star Dwayne Johnson says it's a proud moment for him to see his daughter Simone following in his footsteps and join WWE. Johnson, who had a long career in professional wrestling before becoming a Hollywood star, said Simone will be the youngest signee in the history of WWE. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Dwayne said, "First of all, I mean, what an honour 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." According to Johnson, Simone started training at the age of 16.WWE had announced in February that Simone has officially signed with the company. She is the fourth generation from her family to join pro-wrestling. Her father, under the name The Rock, was a 10-time world champion, while her late grandfather, Rocky Johnson, and her great-grandfather,'High Chief' Peter Maivia, were both inducted into the Hall of Fame.
