Simone Johnson, The Rock’s daughter, signs WWE contract and will report to the PC

Simone Johnson, daughter of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has signed with WWE and she is reporting to the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida this week.

The 18-year-old has done training off-and-on at the PC for at least a year but this announcement today confirms that she is now under a developmental deal. There is no word yet on when she will make her NXT debut.

“It means the world to me,” Johnson said in a press release sent by WWE. “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.”

Triple H added, “Simone Johnson’s unbridled passion and incredible drive has earned her a coveted spot training with the elite athletes from around the world at the WWE Performance Center.”

WWE is touting Simone as the first fourth-generation Superstar in company history. On Wednesday, WWE will post an interview conducted by Cathy Kelley with Simone about her decision to get into professional wrestling.
