The Rock's rich wrestling family has added another member to the WWE family, as his cousin Lina Fanene recently made her NXT debut. Lina, from the famous Anoa'i family signed a NXT developmental contract with the WWE earlier this year at the age of 32. She has a background in college basketball.

How is she related to The Rock? Her uncle was High Chief Peter Maivia, The Rock's late maternal grandfather and a WWE Hall of Famer.
She teamed up with Dana Brooke and Devin Taylor in her debut on May 9th at a live event. The group lost to Bayley, Alexa Bliss and Carmella.
Obviously her family pedigree is going to get her noticed, and just her standing in the ring emits a certain presence. Her family pedigree will also raise standards for her. Let's hope she's a star in the making for the Divas division.
