Wrestling is a business that often runs in the family. Of course, you’ve got obvious examples such as Vince McMahon taking over WWE from his namesake father, with daughter Stephanie and son-in-law Triple H waiting in the wings to take over. We all know that there are two “grandsons of plumbers” out there in the wrestling business—Dusty Rhodes’ sons Dustin (aka Goldust) and Cody (please don’t call him Stardust).
Likewise, it’s well-established that Randy Orton (son of Bob Orton Jr.), Roman Reigns (son of Wild Samoan Sika), Charlotte Flair (daughter of Ric Flair), and so many others had famous dads—or sometimes moms—involved in the business.
Then there are others in the WWE Hall of Fame, not yet in the Hall of Fame, or maybe, in some cases, hardly likely to get inducted at all, who have kids we never realized were, or still are, part of the wrestling industry.
Sometimes it’s because they used different names in the ring, or sometimes it’s because their involvement in wrestling was extremely low-profile. Now, we’ve listed 10 of these wrestling kids—as well as their (usually) far more famous parents who spent some time in WWE—as we look back at some examples of multiple generations in the world of professional wrestling.
