The Rock: Wrestling helped save my relationship with Simone Johnson

In an interview on The Pivot, former WWE star and pop culture icon Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson opened up about his daughter, Simone Johnson, and how wrestling has been "a savior" for both his family and relationship with her.

Johnson said when he had his daughter, now known as Ava in WWE NXT, he was wrestling full-time, making his transition into movies and "flying by the seat of my pants."

"I had so much sh*t going on. So, I like to say me and Simone grew up together. We had a relationship where I was always gone, but we tried to keep it together. Now years later as she becomes a pro wrestler, it’s actually brought us closer together," he explained. "So, in a way, it's helped save that relationship too. In many ways, pro wrestling has been my family’s savior."

The 21-year-old Ava/Johnson started at the Performance Center in February 2020 and is currently part of The Schism faction on NXT TV. She has wrestled just a few times with only one of them televised.
