"Dreams ain’t just for dreamers," The Rock wrote in a caption of himself hugging his daughter. "Congrats to my #1 born, Simone Johnson on officially signing her wrestling contract with @wwe @wwenxt and on her way to becoming the first ever 4th generation WWE athlete. Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn & own. So proud. Live your dream. Let’s work."

The Anoa’i family is a family full of professional wrestlers. Her great-grandfather Peter Maivia and her grandfather Rocky Johnson (The Rock’s father who recently passed) are WWE Hall of Famers. Other famous members of the family include Rosey, Rikishi, Jamal/Ekmo/Umaga, Yokozuna, Roman Reigns, The Usos, Nia Jax, Tamina Snuka and brothers Afa and Sika Anoaʻi, the Wild Samoans.

“Simone is a wonderful girl,” WWE Assistant Head Coach Sara Amato said in a statement. “She’s like a sponge, it’s pretty amazing. She knows what it takes to succeed and all the hard work and sacrifice that goes into it. I wouldn’t have expected anything less.” https://nypost.com/2020/02/11/dwayne-the-rock-johnsons-daughter-simone-t…

In 2018, The Rock revealed his daughter came to him and told him she wanted to get into wrestling. He backed her dreams 100%, and now, here we are.

Congrats, Simone!

We wonder if she’ll also join one of our fave shows, “Total Divas" since her other fam Nia Jax is already starring on it. We’ll keep you posted if she does.
