Dwayne Johnson’s daughter, Simone Johnson, has been carving her own path in the wrestling world under the ring name Ava Raine. Recent hints at her departure from NXT have left fans in anticipation of her next move. Surprisingly, it seems that Raine might be on the verge of becoming a part of The Bloodline on SmackDown.
Ava Raine: Forging New Paths
Paul Heyman, a name synonymous with strategic maneuvers in the wrestling universe, had previously announced his presence on the recent NXT episode. While he claimed to be there to support Bron Breakker, it quickly became apparent that he had other intentions in mind. Heyman was on a mission to recruit a new member for The Bloodline, and Ava Raine seemed to be his prime candidate. In a clip, Heyman could be seen engaged in a persuasive conversation with Raine, suggesting a potential alliance. His actions hinted at the significance of this recruitment, which was further emphasized when he made a mysterious phone call.
Ava Raine made her debut in 2022 during the October 25th episode of NXT. As a heel, she was a part of The Schism, a heel stable, but the stable’s dissolution led to her announcement of departure from NXT. With this pivotal move, it seems logical for her to consider joining another heel faction, but the question lingering in the minds of fans is how Raine will enhance the stable once she’s onboard.

Raine’s Potential Impact on The Bloodline
The Fastlane event witnessed an unexpected turn of events as AJ Styles and John Cena were set to team up against Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. However, backstage ambush by Bloodline members prevented Styles from participating. LA Knight stepped in to join forces with Cena, resulting in a historic victory for John Cena at Fastlane. Despite this success, Mia Yim, who has unsettled scores with The Bloodline, remains an unresolved chapter in this story.
As AJ Styles was taken to the hospital on a stretcher, a concerned Mia Yim was spotted alongside other members of The O.C., Styles’ stable. Yim’s tweet following this incident hinted at her intention to seek revenge, adding further intrigue to the unfolding narrative. With The Bloodline already stretched thin in terms of members, the possibility of The Tribal Chief recruiting additional family members becomes increasingly likely. The O.C. might be plotting a surprise attack on The Bloodline when AJ Styles is declared fit to compete, intensifying the ongoing rivalry.
