The Rock gives advice to NXT superstar
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/03/2018 at 10:15 AM


WWE recently interviewed NXT star Dakota Kai and she brought up The Rock:

WWE.COM: Speaking of leaving home, what was your upbringing like?

KAI: I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand, within a very active household. My dad put a strong emphasis on sport for my brother, sister and me. We did athletics and cross country from the moment we could walk and would sign up for most sports at school. I am lucky to have a close family bond and a lot of cool memories from my childhood. My brother was the one who actually got me into WWE. He watched it all the time, and I started to watch with him. I was hooked on The Rock and his ability to captivate an audience. From there, one of my friends I used to do athletics with told me about a local company that needed more girls. That was in 2007, and I haven't looked back since.

WWE.COM: One similarity you share with The Rock is that you are actually half-Samoan. Did you ever feel any pressure considering the rich lineage of Samoan superstars who have competed in WWE?

KAI: I never felt any pressure about that. I've simply always embraced being Ďafakasi. Mum would make sure us kids would grow up with a strong sense of who we are and where we came from. I've visited Samoa twice and visited my mumís home village of Lepea. She would always make traditional Samoan dishes for us, and we would have family get togethers somewhat regularly. Family is priority within the Samoan community, which means the support system I get from them is amazing.
