Wrestling is known for having a lineage of talent. Some of the most commonly known talents are on the male side of the locker room. Randy Orton (Bob Orton), The Usos (Rikishi), Curtis Axel (Mr. Perfect, Curt Hennig), and Cody Rhodes/Goldust (Dusty Rhodes) are just a few of the male wrestlers who come from wrestling fathers. The female locker room also has their fair share of second and third generation wrestlers. We have the most commonly known women such as the current Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair (Ric Flair), Natalya (Jim Neidhart), and Tamina (Jimmy Snuka).

A second or third generation wrestler has to overcome a lot in order to make it. A lot of people think that these ladies already have a foot in the door because of their lineage, while other people realize they have to work that much harder. A spotlight is always on them to see if they are as good as their fathers.

Let us take a look at some of the women that are a second or third generation wrestler:

The 2017 Ms. Money in the Bank winner Carmella is a second generation Superstar. She grew up watching wrestling and her father was a wrestler for the WWE in the 1990’s. She stated on Total Divas that he didn’t “make it” in his career.

It was mentioned before that Curtis Axel is the son of the late “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig, however he is not the only child of Hennig that is a wrestler. Amy Hennig is the daughter of Hennig and she was performing in World League Wrestling (WLW), which is Harley Race‘s (WWE Hall of Famer) wrestling promotion. She is a 3rd generation wrestler as her grandfather is Larry Hennig. She is a three time WLW ladies champion.

Next up is Shaul Guerrero, who went by the name of Raquel Diaz, is the daughter of Vickie Guerrero and the late Eddie Guerrero. Diaz was one of the top women in the then Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). She is the longest reigning FCW Diva’s Champion and also was the queen of FCW. Her reign lasted longer then Naomi’s and Aj Lee’s. In 2012 FCW became the now NXT and Diaz continued her career until she asked for her release in 2013. She came back for a second run in 2014 but that was short lived due to personal reasons.

Those who watched the Mae Young Classic may recognize the name Of Rachel Evers. Some people though may not realize that Evers is the daughter of Authors of Pain manager Paul Ellering. Although Ellering has stepped foot in the ring as a competitor in the past, he is mostly known for managing the Road Warriors throughout most the 80’s and then for a few years in the 90’s. Evers has been all over the indie scene, appeared in NXT, and also Impact.

In October of 2016, the daughter of Hulk Hogan and former TNA Knockout promoter Brooke Hogan announced that she was starting a female wrestling organization. This organization will include the daughters of Roddy Piper, Diamond Dallas Page and Kerry Von Erich. As of June of last year, Hogan declared that she has a roster of 40 women for this promotion.

What do you think that a 2nd or 3rd generation wrestler brings to the table that someone else couldn’t? Who are some other 2nd or 3rd generation wrestlers that you like? Let us know in the comments below!!!

  • conan_kun

    I wonder if the writer not even know Tessa Blanchard when he mention Rachel Evers from Mae Young Classic.

  • Matthew Rivers

    How in the blue hell is Paige not even mentioned? Tessa Blanchard got snubbed, for whatever reason, but how does a multiple time WWE Divas champion not get included, when the miopic view of this article focuses only on the WWE?

    • YonceLuvsDivas

      Yet they mention Raquel who doesn’t even wrestler anymore.

    • John Finnie

      Its because all the others wrestled or was a jobber in wwf paiges family has never been in wwe…
      As for tessa thats a wtf moment

  • No Lacey Von Erich? Shame.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    What’s brook hogan doing

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    I’m mad that Raquel Diaz left WWE. She could’ve been HUGE if she stayed. She’d probably be in Charlotte’s spot right now.

    • C Mack

      She may come back. She’s married to Aiden English, so I think the bug may bite her to return for her third stint

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    They forgot about me and my daddy The Boogeyman!! I’m going to feed warms to the entire women’s division!

  • Tina

    Intrigued to see what Piper and DDP’s daughters are about. I wonder who Carmella’s dad was in the WWE? Also, I miss Raquel bunches, she could’ve really been something big.

    • C Mack

      Carmella’s dad was a jobber

      • Greg Lee

        He was most notable as being the jobber in Razor Ramon’s WWE debut match.

        • C Mack

          That’s pretty cool. Thanks?

    • chrissi calvert

      Carmellas dad was Paul Van Dale. He was predominantly a jobber in the 90s and also wrestled independently.

  • Jo9834

    The oversight of Tessa was probably a legit mistake, I doubt the writer purposely left her out, considering what an outstanding talent she is. In my opinion, she’s a bonafied megastar in the making, if they gave her a run in NXT she’d put on some of the best womens matches we’ve ever seen (her match in the MYC with Kairi was incredible).

  • NOT Released Emma

    This is the first time I’ve heard about Brooke Hogan’s Female Wrestling Promotion.

    • Ronline

      They mentioned it one time and nothing came from it. Shame really.

  • Charlie

    Santana Garrett, daughter of TNT Kenny G, wrestler and promotor of High Voltage Wrestling.

  • Raekon

    Reina Gonzales which is in NXTs Performance Center and was part of the Mae Young Classic is a second Generation wrestler, Paige, Tessa Blanchard, Santana Garrett, Jazzy Gabbert(though it was her stepdad but still) to name a few of a bunch.

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    Damn did you guys legitimately expect them to highlight every single generational talent in the business? I can kind of understand the bit of anger from paige not at least be mentioned with char, nattie, and mina since wwe has brought her whole family wrestling multiple times over the years. But its not that serious to be really upset over it lol.

  • I think WWE respect all their 3rd/2nd generation wrestlers, specially Charlotte. Hope this year Tamina wins the gold.

  • Ronline

    No mention of Santana Garrett, Tessa Blanchard or even Paige? Well okay then…

    And this is the first I’ve heard of Brooke’s female promotion in AGES. Looks like that thing died fast.

  • Omar Zaal

    Alissa Flash, Hamada, Apache Sisters from Mexico, Reina Gonzalez, Tessa Blanchard,Goya Kong, Lacey Von Erick, Lei D Tapa (I know it’s her uncle) and Paige.

  • Ronline

    I wonder if Diva Dirt or anyone can hunt down the Hof daugters to see if their league is still happening. Doubt it is, but it never hurts to check.

  • victoriaviciousvixen

    She kinda looks like Stephanie McMahon

  • John Finnie

    This seems to be about wwf/wwe second third gen superstars thats why no paige family
