BECOMING THE FIRST-EVER FOURTH GENERATION WWE SUPERSTAR

The 18-year-old will become the first-ever fourth-generation superstar in WWE history, following her great-grandfather, "High Chief" Peter Maivia, her grandfather Rocky Johnson, and of course, her father. 

Simone aims to carry on the legacy left by her family in the WWE and is excited to do so. During an interview, she revealed:

"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."

A DREAM COME TRUE FOR SIMONE

After news of the beginning of her wrestling career hit the internet, she decided to confirm it herself by sharing a picture of her smiling in a WWE t-shirt. She dedicated her caption to her younger self, the version of her who first fell in love with the sport. 

"To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & said "this will be my life one day," this is for you. I'm humbled, grateful & ready to work. Let's do this."
