Arianna Grace was one of the more popular female stars in NXT when she actively competed there last year. Grace is a second-generation wrestler, as she is Santino Marella’s daughter, and she was doing well for herself before. Now it appears even his father Santino Marella believes she has the potential to be the female Rock.

Arianna Grace whose real name is Bianca Carelli, is also one of the most beautiful women in the NXT women’s division. She was out of action since last year due to a major injury but kept herself busy elsewhere.

As seen at NXT Heatwave, Arianna finally returned to NXT television in the opening segment and fans were glad to see her back. While speaking about Arianna during his appearance on Refin’ It Up, Santino Marella made it clear that he sees potential in her to become the female Rock.

”I can’t wait to go to WrestleMania with my daughter in a match and it’s gonna be so much more fun than going to WrestleMania to participate. Just to go as a dad, you know?… I’m hoping she’s called up some time next year. She’s gonna do well. I’m pretty sure that my lens is objective. It’s not just because she’s my daughter. She’s good, she’s very good and she was really growing in popularity very fast before her knee injury and the reason she got the knee injury is because she knows how to work with people that are green because she knows how to guide them and tell a story and they put her with some rookie athletes and they did something and blew her knee out but, yeah, and I’m not talking about just being there. I’m talking about top-five girls, breaking off into movies later. Our goal is that she’s a female Rock. We’re not just looking to participate. She has the potential to be a female Rock.”


We will have to wait and see what NXT will have planned for Arianna Grace, as many fans wonder whether Santino Marella’s words will come true in the end.
