The Rock: Female Talent In WWE Is Rightly Being Pushed To The Front Of The Line

The Rock will forever have a lasting impact on the wrestling industry and his daughter Simone Johnson is training to carry on the family tradition.

Simone reported to the WWE Performance Center in February 2020 to begin her training, and while she has yet to make her in-ring debut, The Rock is already proud of what she has accomplished.

"She's in it. (She's) a full time student as well. A full time student at their training facility, WWE has a great training facility, NXT, she's in it, she loves the wrestling business, and I'm very proud of her," The Rock told Present Company.

Speaking about the evolution of women's wrestling, The Rock said, "What's great about this is where we are today and the impact that women's wrestling has had on that industry today is really spectacular compared to 20 years ago. Things were a lot different 20 years ago and even before that. Today, where they are at, they are headlining pay-per-views and really the female talent is, rightly so, being pushed to the front of the line and in these main event positions and they are all doing great, including my daughter. I'm very proud of all the women there."

The Rock's last televised WWE appearance came on the SmackDown premiere on FOX in 2019 when he shared the ring with Becky Lynch.

While rumors have swirled of The Rock returning for a WrestleMania showdown with Roman Reigns, he has denied the match is happening. It is unknown when The Rock will return to WWE TV.
