The WWE Network announced the move on Monday.

The 18-year-old Johnson — who recently graduated from University School in Davie — is hoping to become the first fourth-generation WWE wrestler, joining her father, grandfather and great-grandfather.

She responded to the news on Instagram, writing, “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.”

Dreams ain’t just for dreamers,” Dwayne Johnson wrote on Instagram. “Congrats to my #1 born, Simone Johnson on officially signing her wrestling contract with @wwe @wwenxt and on her way to becoming the first ever 4th generation WWE athlete.Carry our family name proudly, but your road will always be yours to create, earn & own. “So proud. Live your dream. Let’s work.”
It means the world to me,” Simone Johnson 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.”
