Who is Dwayne Johnson's daughter? 21-year-old is first fourth generation member of The Schism
WINTER PARK, FLORIDA: Dwayne Johnson's daughter is taking after her father as she made her WWE debut on Wednesday, October 26, becoming the first fourth-generation member of the Schism. Simone Johnson, whose ring name is Ava Raine, was seen wearing a mask when she would enter the ring so people did not know who she was, until now.
Raine has now expressed her gratitude by talking about the love and acceptance she received from the group that she debuted as a part of. NXT boss Shawn Michaels himself dropped hints that she was ready for her debut, per The Daily Mail.
According to The Daily Mail, Raine said, "The love and acceptance The Schism has given me defies any preconceived notions of who I’m supposed to be, This family completes me. I am Ava Raine." Her father too praised her when she signed with WWE, expressing how proud he was about his daughter following her passion. "First of all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps but more importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliché," Jonhson reportedly said, adding, "But she actually wants to create and blaze her own path, which is so important." In the past, Michaels had told Metro, "Maybe by the end of the year. But absolutely 2023 and certainly in the future. [She’s] really close."
Raine's family includes heavyweights in the wrestling world. Her father The Rock, her grandfather Rocky Johnson and her great-grandfather High Chief were all legends. She made the announcement through her Instagram account as she posted a picture of her wearing a grey WWE T-shirt flashing a large smile with a 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."
