Recently, Ava Raine made her “WWE NXT” TV debut by joining the faction known as Schism, which is led by Joe Gacy and includes the former Grizzled Young Veterans tag team of Rip Fowler and Jagger Reid. Although Raine has trained at the WWE Performance Center for a few years, she hasn’t yet entered a WWE ring match.
Shawn Michaels, a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, spoke with the media on the call prior to “NXT” Deadline this Saturday, December 10, and shared his thoughts on Raine’s development. According to Michaels, she’s been a major, shall we say, kick-in-the-shorts for the Schism in terms of character. “She’s doing fantastic, in my opinion.” Just her facials, she looks great, there’s no doubt that she’s really getting more comfortable, and that is the most important thing.
We were just talking about it the other day. She’s really starting to enjoy the process and, as we said, get into this character. Expectations for Raine may be high in the future, despite the fact that she has yet to even enter the ring as a competitor. Many people will be watching her in the ring and her level of success because she is the daughter of 10-time world champion The Rock. Michaels updated the audience on what he knew about Raine’s ringside prospects.
The Rock Johnson’s Girl Ring Debut
Michaels replied, “From an in-ring perspective, I, I would have to ask one of the coaches on that.” She is progressing and working at a fantastic rate because, as you know, I frequently refer to the “No news is good news” report. Since Raine is only 21 years old, she still has a long way to go before she can put her craft into practice and possibly perfect it.
Dwayne The Rock Johnson’s girl, Ava Raine, forename Simone Johnson, made her ring debut on July 9 at an NXT live event in Orlando, FL. Raine ran fellow NXT superstar Cora Jade as well as the rest of the women’s locker room during the segment, portraying a heel and calling herself The Final Girl. Following his appearance, the most electrifying man in sports entertainment provided an update on his daughter’s progress and discussed her becoming WWE’s 1st fourth-generation megastar.
She’s created history. The Rock expressed his admiration for her at the premiere of DC League of Super-Pets. She is strong and independent, and it is critical for her to forge her own path, light her own trail. She will not really come to me searching for much, which I appreciate, and I’m here to follow and cheer her. Raine joined WWE in February 2020 and was delegated to the WWE Performance Center right away. Raine’s learning did not go as planned at first, as she suffered injuries that required a series of knee injuries before her career could take off.
