Triple H Tells Fightful That The Rock's Daughter Simone "Has The Wrestling Bug"

Triple H comments on the wrestling passion of The Rock's daughter, Simone.

Back in September, WWE superstar Zelina Vega commented that Simone Johnson, daughter of The Rock, had been training at the WWE Performance Center. Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that Simone had been training on a part-time basis with the belief that she would begin training in a more serious manner in the near future.

Speaking to Fightful on the NXT TakeOver: Phoenix media call, Triple H discussed Simone's training and passion for the business.

"I know she has 'the bug' of the business. She caught the love of it from her father," said Triple H. "If you were to ask The Rock, there's nothing like that electricity, that connection he has with people. It all stems from his time in WWE. His love of that is evident. I think she sees that as well. It's in her blood. If it's something that she wants to pursue -- I know that he is big, like I am, on continuing education and doing everything the right way. I know he believes it's a wonderful business. I know he would be proud to have her be a part of (the business). Will you see more of her in the future? It would be hard not to see her in the future."

Simone is just 17 years old and still in high school. She told The Hollywood Reporter in November 2017 that she plans to study business in college and hopes to pursue a career in wrestling and talent management after graduating.
