Dwayne Johnson's daughter Simone begins training at WWE Performance Center

Los Angeles, Feb 11 (PTI) Simone Johnson, the daughter of 10-time world champion Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, has started training to become a WWE Superstar at WWE Performance Center.

According to official WWE website, the 18-year-old, born to Johnson and his ex-wife, film producer Dany Garcia, will be the first fourth-generation Superstar in WWE history.

Her great-grandfather WWE Hall of Famers 'High Chief' Peter Maivia, her grandfather Rocky Johnson, and her father precede her.

Simone Johnson said she is looking forward to carry on her family legacy.

'It means the world to me. 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,' she said.

Paul 'Triple H' Levesque, executive vice president, Talent, Live Events & Creative, said her passion and drive earned Simone Johnson a spot training with the elite athletes from around the world at the Orlando-based centre.

'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,' he said.

Wrestler-turned-Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson also took to social media to welcome his daughter to the ring.

'Dreams ain't just for dreamers. 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 fourth generation WWE athlete.

'Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn and own. So proud. Live your dream. Let's work,' he wrote on Instagram alongside his picture with his daughter on Monday.
