The Rock’s daughter lashes out at haters who don’t like her professional wrestling name

Simone Johnson is an old block chip – to a degree.

The daughter of wrestling legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — who struck a deal with WWE . in 2020but has had her debut delayed by a knee injury – announced on Sunday that she would be known in the ring as Ava Raine when she changed her name on Twitter.

But when she announced her new WWE alter ego, struggling fans on Twitter were disappointed that “The Rock”‘s daughter didn’t make it through “The Pebble.”

And just like a true professional wrestler, Simone Johnson quickly fought back by retweeting someone who made the pretty obvious joke.

Simone Johnson then doubled down on how tired the joke was by doing a Google search of different types of rocks. She captioned the image with “nothing in this category please xx.”

But as Twitter users continued to push back, Simone Johnson climbed on the ropes and slammed the criticism.

“I probably sound like a broken record and hopefully this is the last one I mention, but I don’t understand why people being portrayed as separate individuals from their family name is such a heated topic,” she tweeted. “A name does not discredit a family’s previous achievements.”

In a follow-up tweet, she added that she “could build my entire career around my dad and people would still be bashing me.”

The 20-year-old is a fourth-generation wrestler. Her father was a ten-time WWE World Champion before turning to acting. Her grandfather Rocky Johnson and great-grandfather Peter “High Chief” Maivia are WWE Hall of Famers.

Given this — and that Simone Johnson decided to debut the name Ava Raine with a GIF of Fairuza Balk’s Nancy Downs from 1996’s “The Craft,” and used a photo of Nancy for the banner for her account — we’d advise haters to back off. to withdraw as soon as possible.
