WWE NXT held a are living event tonight in Orlando, and in addition to a fight royal and a number of Title matches, fans in attendance experienced the opportunity to listen to the 1st dwell promo from Ava Raine, aka Simone Johnson (by using Jay Reddick). Raine is the daughter of WWE legend The Rock, and followers have been keen to see her in the ring in NXT. Tonight was reportedly her very first promo in entrance of fans, and all through the promo she tore into Cora Jade and this upcoming wave of stars in the NXT Women’s Division (via Rich Schellhase). Raine called herself ‘The Ultimate Girl’ all through the promo, which is also in her social media bio, so this will probably be a jogging issue every time she hits NXT Television set.
With Raine specifically calling out Jade, maybe we are planting the seeds for a initially feud, while proper now Jade is one-50 percent of the NXT Women’s Tag Workforce Champions along with Roxanne Perez. Subsequent week Perez will facial area Mandy Rose for the NXT Championship, so she could emerge from that fight with two Titles immediately after all is stated and finished. We will have to wait around and see if Raine is introduced into Jade’s orbit quickly or if that is anything in the is effective for afterwards, but both way, it really is awesome to see her in the ring.

Raine was signed by WWE in 2020 and has been coaching at the Performance Middle, but a number of injuries kept her from debuting and becoming released on NXT Tv. With her name in spot and an introduction at dwell occasions, it would seem her full debut is closer than at any time, and we are not able to wait around to see her in the mix.
During a preceding job interview with Triple H, he was asked about Raine and catching the bug of the small business from her father, and he thinks that very same enjoy of WWE is in her blood.

“I know she has ‘the bug’ of the business enterprise. She caught the love of it from her father,” Triple H reported. “If you had been to talk to The Rock, there is very little like that electrical power, that link he has with folks. It all stems from his time in WWE His really like of that is evident. I imagine she sees that as properly. It can be in her blood. If it truly is one thing that she wishes to go after — I know that he is major, like I am, on continuing schooling and doing every thing the right way. I know he believes it’s a amazing organization. I know he would be very pleased to have her be a section of (the organization). Will you see much more of her in the upcoming? It would be challenging not to see her in the long run.”
