The Rock took to social media to express his joy and admiration for his daughter taking her first steps to become a WWE Superstar.


“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.”

For Johnson, she knows she has a lot to live up to and nothing will be handed to her.

Her coaches say Johnson is making her family proud.”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.”

If everything goes well, one day, we could be looking at a potential Charlotte Flair versus Simone Johnson Wrestlemania match, with Ric Flair in one corner and The Rock in another. Book it now Vince McMahon.
