    NXT boss Shawn Michaels had teased that Simone was close to being ready for her debut.

    He previously told Metro: ‘Maybe by the end of the year. But absolutely 2023 and certainly in the future. [She’s] really close.’

    Troubled times: Her debut was pushed back due to a few injuries that ended up requiring surgery and the rehabilitation that follows

    ‘First of all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps but more importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliché, but she actually wants to create and blaze her own path, which is so important,’ Dwayne said of daughter after her deal was signed in February 2020.

    When making the announcement, Simone took to Instagram and posted a photo of herself wearing a grey WWE t-shirt, while flashing a prideful smile.

    ‘To the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & said “this will be my life one day”, this is for you. I’m humbled, grateful & ready to work. Let’s do this. @wwe @wwenxt,’ she captioned the post.

    Simone is the first child of Dwayne and the only child of Dany Gracia, who’s a producer and founder of The Gracia Companies.

    The Rock also has two other daughters – six-year-old Jasmine and four year-old Tiana – whom he shares with wife, Lauren Hashian.
