Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson comes from an impressive bloodline of professional wrestlers. He has family ties to multiple generations of stars. The latest to emerge could be his daughter, who is currently signed with WWE.

As Simone Johnson prepares for her debut in WWE’s developmental NXT brand, she has already received her ring name. Simone will wrestle in Ava Raine, much to the chagrin of many fans. At a live event in Citrus Springs, Florida, her debut was teased for the crowd.

Ava Raine was spotted during one of the women’s matches on the show. She walked out to the ring from the back. It appeared she was scouting some talent before she abruptly returned to the locker room.

Shortly after being officially dubbed Ava Raine, The Rock’s daughter spruced up her appearance with a new look. Raine colored part of her hair red to give her look a little more character. After recovering from knee surgery, it looks like she will be ready to go sometime soon.

Ava Raine is still waiting to make her television debut on NXT. The brand sports a fairly large women’s roster, so there should be no shortage of opponents. While there, she will work to perfect her craft in hopes of following in her superstar father’s footsteps.

While she didn’t step into the squared circle, Ava Raine’s appearance at this live event shows that WWE is getting ready to debut her. It will be interesting to see if she can carve her own path. She’s got awfully big shoes to fill.
