'It means the world to me,' Simone said in a statement. 'To know that my family has such a personal connection to wrestling is really special to me and I feel grateful to have the opportunity, not only to wrestle, but to carry on that legacy.'

'Simone Johnson's unbridled passion and incredible drive has earned her a coveted spot training with the elite athletes from around the world at the WWE Performance Center,' said Paul 'Triple H' Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative.

Not only does Simone now have an opportunity to cultivate and display her passion for WWE within the Performance Center, but she'll carry on the tradition of her incredible family lineage while creating her own impact as WWE's first fourth generation Superstar,' Levesque added.

Simone also announced the news in a tweet, along with a photo of her from the WWE Performance Center.

'For the little girl who fell in love with wrestling & was determined to make this dream a reality - this is for you. I'm beyond thankful for this opportunity & ready to get after it. Let's do this,' she said.
