Ata Johnson Partner And Family

Ata comes from a family of wrestlers, a well known Anoa’I wrestling family. Her father was Fanene Leifi Pita Maivia (aka Peter Maivia; aka Flying Hawaiian) a Samoan professional wrestler. He was trained by Steve Rickard and debuted in 1962. In his legacy, he has won 18 heavyweight championships across the world. He was also a stunt coordinator and an actor in James Bond: You Only Live Once and a base for character Maui in 2016 Disney animated film, Moana. He died of cancer, on June 12, 1982.

Ata Johnson’s brother Peter Jr. Maivia also wrestled in Hawaii and the west coast after the passing of his father.

She married a Canadian professional wrestler, Wayde Douglas Bowles (known as Rocky Johnson). The couple met after Maivia and Johnson were tag team partners. Her father disapproved their relationship, not to mention the marriage itself. They got married against the will of her father. He didn’t disapprove their relationship because he has something against Rocky Johnson. Rocky was simply worried because he knew all the responsibilities wrestlers have. He knew that, as a wrestler, Rocky needs to travel a lot and leave his wife behind. But that was not the case here.

Rocky and Ata Johnson traveled everywhere together and that was not difficult since they had only one child, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Ata’s husband Johnson currently lives in Davie, Florida. The couple divorced in 2003. He has two more children from his previous marriage. A son Curtis and a daughter Wanda.

In one of his interviews about his family, Dwayne the Rock Johnson talked about his mom Ata Johnson. He told the story which has changed his way of thinking and understanding of the world around him. That interview also said touched the subject of marital problems in the family. Dwayne said that his parents had some quarrel in front of him and then they continued to fight inside their car. Dwayne was driving behind them when they suddenly stopped on the side of the road, his mother got out of the car and started walking in the middle of the busiest roads. She wanted to commit a suicide in front of her son and husband. Dwayne pushed her on the side of the road and that thought him about the cost of a human life.

That changed him, his life and his future because only a year after that, he was arrested for the last time in his life. He turned his attitude upside down and started being himself. A person who will never stop evolving into an even better man, and who will always take care of his family. When we say family we mean his mother Ata, his father Johnson, and his wife and children.
