Dwayne Johnson’s younger daughters are taking interest in his wrestling career for the first time. During a recent visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the former wrestling star, The Rock, shared that his younger daughters have recently taken interest in learning about his wrestling career. The Jumanji actor explained, “They love seeing me, ’cause it’s almost like it’s a different lifetime. So they’re fascinated when they see me in old matches.”
Johnson shared that daughters Tiana Gia, and Jasmine, whom he shares with wife Lauren Hashian, get into watching the old matches and “love jumping off couches on me.” Johnson wrestled for WWE for eight years as “The Rock” and is a third-generation professional wrestler that’s widely regarded as one of the greats.
Meanwhile, the fourth generation of family wrestlers begins with Johnson’s oldest daughter, Simone, whom he shares with ex-wife Dany Garcia. Simone Johnson recently kicked off her own WWE career. While talking about his daughter’s WWE career, a wrestler turned actor revealed, “She made her debut in WWE in their smaller federation, NXT. She did so good. She went out there on the microphone, you’ve got to be poised when you go out there, and she’s got a cool wrestling name… Ava Raine.”
Dwayne Johnson’s daughter, Simone Johnson, known professionally as Ava Raine, officially stepped into the world of wrestling in 2020 and made her grand debut in the ring over the weekend. And her dad, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, is proud of his daughter as she continues her family’s legacy. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight during the DC League of Super-Pets screening, the wrestler turned actor shared, “She’s fourth, (generation). She’s made history. Very very proud of her.”
Simone follows in the footsteps of her father, Dwayne’s father, and his grandfather. Dwayne, who retired from the WWE in 2004, added, “She is fiercely independent.” The DC League of Super-Pets star continues, “It’s very important for her to make her own way. Blaze her own trail. Blaze her own path.” In May, Simone came under fire from wrestling fans, who felt she wasn’t honouring her family after she announced her in-ring name. The 20-year-old athlete released a statement explaining her choice.
