• WWE Changes The Rock’s Daughter’s Name
WWF Legend The Rock’s daughter Simone Johnson (age 21) is known as Ava Raine on WWE NXT.
She’s a part of a group called Schism, led by Joe Gacy.
On this week’s NXT, Ava Raine appeared in the crowd during the Tiffany Stratton vs. Thea Hail match, to distract Thea.
While this happened, the commentators only mentioned her by her first name “Ava”.
This began speculation that WWE has dropped her last name, and WWE has now confirmed this change by making it official on their website:
Ava hasn’t wrestled any Televised or Live Event matches so far.
