This is what I found on ABCNews.GO.com:
Can you smell what Simone Johnson is cooking? If not, you will soon.
On Monday, the WWE Network announced that the 18-year-old daughter of retired pro-wrestler turned movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has started training to become the next superstar.
Johnson’s new career has her following in the footsteps of not only her father, but her grandfather, Rocky Johnson, and her great-grandfather, “High Chief” Peter Maivia — all of whom are in the Hall of Fame.
From WWE’s announcement:
The 18-year-old is on a path to become the first fourth-generation Superstar in WWE history, coming from a line of legends that includes her great-grandfather and grandfather, WWE Hall of Famers “High Chief” Peter Maivia and Rocky Johnson, and her father.
“It means the world to me,” Johnson said. “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.”
“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,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “Not only does Simone now have an opportunity to cultivate and display her passion for WWE within the Performance Center, but she’ll carry on the tradition of her incredible family lineage while creating her own impact as WWE’s first fourth generation Superstar.”
