The Rock’s daughter Simone Johnson has shown off her new look not long after she received one of WWE’s customary name changes.
Simone Johnson joined WWE as a trainee at the Performance Center in February 2020 at just 18-years-old. As the daughter of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, she is set to be the first fourth-generation Superstar in WWE history. Both her grandfather, Rocky Johnson, and great-grandfather ‘High Chief’ Peter Maivia were also legends of the squared circle.
At the time of her signing, Johnson said she was grateful to have the opportunity to carry on her family’s legacy:
“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.”’
Back in May, the fourth-generation wrestler indicated that she had been given a new WWE moniker, changing her Twitter handle to “AvaRaineWWE.”
Taking to social media, the 20-year-old prospect has shown off her new look to go with her new name, prompting Zelina Vega to suggest the pair form a group.
It’s as if all the people with red in their hair are the dopest and should be in a group oooouuunoimjusssayin

Ava Raine has yet to compete on WWE television but with a new name and now a new look, her introduction to the fans of NXT 2.0 could be imminent. Her father, The Rock, is still heavily rumoured to be making his comeback to the company as part of WrestleMania 39 in the spring of 2023.
