The Rock “Very Proud” Of His Daughter Signing With WWE

The Rock & Simone

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s daughter Simone signed a developmental deal back in February – and the Hollywood star and former WWE champion discussed this and more with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

He said: “She signed her contract with the WWE and it just blows my mind.

“First of all, what an honour that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps, but more importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliche. But she actually wants to create and blaze her own path, which is so important.

“And she ended up being the youngest signee in the history of the company. At 16 — by the way, she’s 18 now. At 16, she was working her ass off quietly under the radar, in the ring, getting thrown around and all the bumps and bruises that come with pro wrestling.

“And she hung in there, and I’m very, very proud of her.”
