The Rock is a bona fide WWE Hall of Famer, and he has achieved a ton of accolades outside the pro wrestling ring. Even though The Great One is no longer taking bumps in the ring, his daughter, Simone Johnson, is now a part of WWE NXT.

Now performing as Ava, The Rock’s daughter has impressed fans with her ability on the microphone so far. She has not competed in a match, or gotten physical, but that could be due to her history of knee injuries.

During recent interview with TMZ Sports, Tamina Snuka, who is one of Dwayne Johnson’s many cousins, commented on her relationship with Ava, and how she is so proud to see her start in the pro wrestling business.

“Man, that girl… I have known her since Dani was pregnant with her.”


“That’s how long I’ve known Simone. This is how it is. This girl, she has been there at every single… bro, I don’t know if you remember this but her and [Aunt] will be at front row behind commentators and everything, this is how it works. They’re at every single show. This girl has been there through her whole life. Now to see her come and debut… I was with my [Aunt] at the time and we were watching here in LA and when we watched her debut, I mean, we just flipped.”

“That’s something different brother. When you have your niece, who has been there watching your career, and you’re seeing this girl grow up and be the woman that she is today, you can’t help but be so totally proud of her. My girls are my everything. Simone, I have that relationship with her and I look at her as like a daughter to me too in that way. It was awesome, she was great. She did amazing. You can not be more proud of a family member in that way. You just get proud, you just get really really proud.”

We’ll have to see what’s next for Ava in WWE. She is currently a part of the Schism stable, along with Joe Gacy, Jagger Reid and Rip Fowler. That faction is only getting started, and it seems that WWE is not going to stop as they continue building their momentum every week.
