WWE released an interview with Simone Johnson that was conducted by Cathy Kelley. WWE announced earlier this week that Johnson signed with the company and has reported to the WWE Performance Center. Watch the video below or on the WWE YouTube Page.

She also spoke about watching her father Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the ring, his reaction to her telling him that she wants to be a wrestler, training in the ring with him, whether she feels pressure being the first fourth generation wrestler in WWE, continuing her education while training, and more.
