It seems that Simone Johnson is following in her father’s footsteps after she signed a contract with the professional wrestling organization WWE.

Her father, Dwayne Johnson, has spoken of his pride as the 18-year-old becomes the youngest signee in the history of the company.

Johnson, who shares Simone with his ex-wife Dany Garcia revealed that she began her training at just 16-years-old.

Speaking via video chat on Friday’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” the former wrestler said,

"She was working her [Expletive] off. Quietly, under the radar, in the ring, getting thrown around, and all the bumps and bruises that go with pro wrestling.”

Simone will be the fourth person in her family to become a wrestler after her great-grandfather Peter Maivia and grandfather Rocky Johnson.

While her father Dwayne made his World Wrestling Entertainment group debut in 1996, their predecessors have both been added into the WWE hall of fame.

Simone shared a post speaking about her love for the sport.

Johnsons daughter has not made her passion for wrestling a secret, and her Instagram is littered with pictures of her at wrestling events.

Back in February, Simone shared a post speaking about her love for the sport and her eagerness to continue the family legacy. She said,

“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.”

In fact, she had previously told “Refinery29” that she was more interested in wrestling than modeling.

Garcia Johnson was signed with IMG as a model in 2017 and was the first “Golden Globes Ambassador.” The position had previously been called Mr/Miss Golden Globes.

Simone has also worked with Global Girl Media, a charitable organization that facilitates media opportunities for girls.

Her father is definitely not shy of expressing his happiness that his daughter is joining the wresting world, saying, “it just blows my mind.”
