Yesterday WWE announced that Simone Johnson had officially signed with the company, and her father, The Rock has commented on the news. She follows in the footsteps of dad The Rock, grandfather Rocky "Soulman" Johnson, who died January 15 at age 75, and great-grandfather Peter "High Chief" Maivia.
Furthermore, Simone herself also took to her Instagram account to share the news, posting a pic of herself wearing the WWE Performance Center gear.
Simone Johnson has been training at the Performance Center on and off since 2018, though she was in high school at the time.
"Simone is a wonderful girl", said WWE Assistant Head Coach Sara Amato in a statement.
The announcement came shortly after WWE revealed it will hold WrestleMania 37 in Hollywood in March 2021.
With her dad going down in history as one of the best in the game, Simone has a good mentor to turn to. "She's like a sponge, it's pretty unbelievable".
"It means the world to me", Johnson said in a press release. "I wouldn't have expected anything less". You'll be able to watch that interview on WWE's digital platforms, including WWE.com, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
