The daughter of a WWE legend is looking to get into the professional wrestling business.

It’s no secret that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s family tree has deep roots they have ties to the pro wrestling business dates back to his grandfather Peter Maivia as well as his father Rocky Johnson.

The Rock’s eldest daughter Simone Garcia Johnson has made her pro wrestling ambitions public.

While speaking about her new role as the 2018 Golden Globes Ambassador with the Hollywood Reporter, Johnson was asked about her love of pro wrestling.

Keep in mind that she is only a 16-year-old high school student and by the time she is done with college, which is 2023, then her mindset could change. Here is what she had to say:

"It's a sport that is unlike anything else in the world. There's just a certain amount of passion that every move and match requires, and that's so admirable. It's definitely something I've thought about and want to pursue."

"As much as I love and admire the film industry, I don't see myself pursuing a career in it at the moment. I plan to study business in college — NYU, hopefully — and after graduating, I want to pursue wrestling and eventually transition into talent management."

The Rock is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. He picked up his popularity in the mainstream while working in the WWE from 1996 to 2004 and was the first third-generation wrestler in the company's history.

He returned to WWE part-time from 2011–13 and continues to make sporadic appearances for the company.

During his time with the company, he is an eight-time WWE Champion, two-time WCW/World Champion, two-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and a five-time WWE Tag Team Champion.

He is the sixth Triple Crown Champion in WWE and won the 2000 Royal Rumble.
