Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s daughter Ava Raine is currently signed to WWE and works on the NXT brand. She followed the footsteps of the great-grandfather Peter Malvia, grandfather Rocky Johnson and father Dwayne Johnson. Shawn Michaels recently said that The Rock’s daughter is gaining confidence in WWE NXT.

During the NXT Deadline conference call, Shawn Michaels discussed Ava Raine’s development in NXT. He thinks that she has been a “huge kick in the shorts” as she’s doing a fantastic job with her gimmick. Shawn Michaels praised her for getting comfortable with her character and enjoying the process.

First of all from her character standpoint, she has been a huge kick in the shorts. I think she’s doing fantastic. We were just talking about it the other day, her facials-she looks fantastic. She’s really getting comfortable and that’s the most important thing.

She’s really beginning to, as we say, get into this character and enjoy the process. From an in-ring standpoint, I guess I would say I would have to ask one of the coaches on that. I think with everybody, she is developing and working at an absolutely great pace. From the reports I read, it’s fantastic and successful.


For us, it’s just very exciting to have her plugged into The Schism and for her to be just enjoying that role, getting comfortable with it, looking natural, not looking difficult for her to do.

She doesn’t seem to be struggling. I think she’s really gaining confidence as well, and that’s so important to this. We are very excited, obviously for her and her development here. I guess that biggest thing for us is that she’s having some fun. This is a very young group that we have here, and I’d really love for them to enjoy and have fun while they’re doing it because I think that makes this job a lot easier to do.

Ava Raine created a lot of buzz on the internet after she revealed herself as the fourth member of The Schism on NXT. The fourth generation wrestler wants to carve out her own path, and she’s making sure others let her do her thing. Fans were certainly shocked to see The Rock’s daughter debut as a heel.

The Rock also reacted to his daughter’s NXT debut. We will have to wait and see how Ava Raine will be booked in the coming weeks. Fans are certainly interested in her current direction.
