Sources tell Pro Wrestling Sheet that Simone has been training part-time at the PC for the past few months, mainly just occasional sessions with trainers, but there’s word going around that the 17-year-old will be starting at the facility in a more serious manner in the near future.
“His daughter Simone and I have become so close. And she’s training now at the Performance Center. To be a part of that, because she’s like I want to learn from you. I was like, dude. She was like, ‘I knew that I wanted to start wrestling for sure when I saw you at Raw doing the movie.’ I was like, dude, that’s The Rock’s daughter telling me this? What?”
Last year, Simone expressed her interested in wanting to pursue a career wrestling with The Holloywood Report:
“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.”
