If she completes her training, she'll be the fourth-generation wrestler, after her father, her grandfather Rock Johnson and her great-grandfather High Chief Peter Maivia.

The Rock took to Instagram on Monday evening to express how proud he is of his oldest child.

Speaking about her dad's influence on her new career path, she said in a podcast: "He basically just told me what I just said, 'You are your own person. Regardless if other people compare you to your parents or to anyone else, or if you compare yourself to your parents or to anyone else, you are still your own person'."

When discussing expectations people might have when taking into account her family's history with wrestling, she said: "I just have to remind myself, that pressure only exists when I start comparing myself to my parents.

Back in August last year, 15 years after he left WWE, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson officially announced his retirement from wrestling.

While promoting his latest move Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw on Live With Kelly and Ryan, the star admitted he had 'quietly retired' from the sport he knew and loved.

"I miss wrestling, I love wrestling," he said, telling the presenters: "I quietly retired from wrestling because I was lucky enough to have just a really wonderful career and accomplish what I wanted to accomplish, but there's nothing like a live crowd, a live audience, a live microphone as you both know."
