Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s daughter Simone starts training to become WWE star

Simone Garcia Johnson, 17, has started training to become a wrestler and continue the family tradition.

Under the famous name ‘The Rock’, Dwayne enjoyed an illustrious career at the top in the ring before turning his attentions to Hollywood.

His daughter still has a long way to go but she has taken her first steps in the sport.

The Mirror report that Simone has started training on a part-time basis at the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida.

It is reported that she is looking to step up her training regime in the near future after revealing to The Hollywood Reporter last year that it was a career she was looking to pursue.

She said: “It’s a sport that is unlike anything else in the world.

“There’s just a certain amount of passion that every move and match requires, and that’s so admirable.

“It’s definitely something I’ve thought about and want to pursue.”

Simone could become the fourth generation of the Johnson family to make a name for herself in WWE.

Her great-grandfather Peter Maivia started the trend before grandfather Rocky Johnson took over.

Dwayne then helped raise the profile of WWE under his character The Rock.
