Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson made an appearance on Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss a wide range of topics including his daughter.
Of course, WWE announced back in February that Simone Johnson had signed with the company.
At the time of her signing, it was known that Simone had been working out in the ring to see if wrestling would be a fit for her. The former WWE Champion mentioned in this interview that his daughter has actually been training for two years.
“She signed her contract with the WWE and it just blows my mind. First of all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps. More importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliche. She actually wants to create and blaze her own path, which is so important.
She ended up being the youngest signee in the history of the company. At 16, by the way, she’s 18 now, at 16, she was working her ass off quietly under the radar, in the ring, getting thrown around and all the bumps and bruises that come with pro wrestling. She hung in there, and I’m very, very proud of her.”
