Who is Ava Raine? Dwayne Johnson's daughter Simone reveals new wrestling name ahead of WWE debut
After graduating from high school in 2019, Simone, who is also a model, attended New York University
Simone Alexandra Johnson, Dwayne Johnson's only child with his ex-spouse Dany Garcia, has finally announced her official wrestling name ahead before her WWE debut. She has been hard at work for two years and her debut is now closer than ever. To announce the big news, she took to her Instagram and Twitter, sending her fans into a frenzy. Dwayne has two more daughters, six-year-old Jasmine and four-year-old Tiana, with her current wife Lauren Hashian.
Simone, daughter of 10-times-world-champion signed her WWE contract way back in 2020 and has been working ever since. Her proud father, during a conversation with WWE's official website, said, "It means the world to me. 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."
The 20-year-old wrestler has decided on her moniker and it's Ava Raine. People have often why her debut was pushed back 2 years. That's because she had to undergo several surgeries that further required rehabilitation. Announcing her official, she posted on Instagram with the caption, "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."
The fourth-generation wrestler from the Johnson family
After her debut, Simone will be the first in WWE's history to be the first fourth-generation wrestler, following her great-grandfather 'High Chief' Peter Maivia, grandfather 'Soulman' Rocky Johnson, and then her father 'The Rock'. The wrestler-turned-actor was beyond proud when her first daughter signed with WWE. He took to his Instagram and said, "Dreams ain’t just for dreamers. 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. #humblehungry #hardestworkersintheroom #4thgeneration"
Simone was born on August 14, 2001, in Florida and is also an active model. She has previously signed to IMG Models and is known to baffle her Instagram followers with her pictures. She graduated from high school in 2019 and went on to attend New York University. The up-and-coming wrestler has no problem with fame and camera as she is literally trained for it since day one.
