Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said “it blows my mind” that his teen daughter joined the WWE.
“She signed her contract with the WWE [World Wrestling Entertainment], and you know, it’s just — it blows my mind,” Dwayne, 48, said of his 18-year-old daughter Simone Alexandra Johnson on Friday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I mean, first all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps, but more importantly...she actually wants to create and blaze her own path which is just so important,” he told Fallon over video chat.
Back in February, the teen officially joined the WWE, per a press release on the organization’s website. “It means the world to me,” Simone said in the release. “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.”
