Update On The Rock’s Cousin Savelina Fanene Signing With WWE

WWE recently signed three new Divas to developmental contracts: Dasha Kuret, Savelina “Lina” Fanene and Dani Jackson. Savelina Fanene is actually a cousin of WWE legend The Rock. Her grandfather and The Rock’s great grandmother were siblings. Lina, who is from California, has a background in sports and is friends with WWE Diva Layla.

She attended WrestleMania 28 in Miami (John Cena vs. The Rock) and The Rock’s mother Ata Johnson reportedly encouraged her to get into pro wrestling. She started training at a wrestling school in California and impressed WWE officials during a recent tryout camp.
