The personal lives of wrestlers are usually high profile and common knowledge. Social media and the power of the internet have made it almost impossible to have a private life. There are many children of wrestlers to develop their own followings thanks to their parents in the wrestling business. Brooke Hogan started a singing career solely due to being Hulk Hogan’s daughter. Noelle Foley has become a draw on the convention circuit when it comes to getting fans to want to buy her autographs or take pictures with her. Let’s not even discuss the second-generation wrestlers to become stars. Many kids of wrestlers have benefited greatly from their parents.
There is however a great deal of wrestling kids that have gone under the radar in the wrestling bubble. They have started to emerge in recent times. We will look at some of the wrestling children that you wouldn’t be able to detect as being the kids of these performers in person. They either don’t resemble the wrestler or resemble the wrestler too much to make it shocking. Time will tell if they enter the business or develop a higher profile. Here are fifteen wrestling children you wouldn’t be able to recognize in real life.
15 Frank Eudy (Sycho Sid)
One of the most bizarre realizations is that Sycho Sid’s son Frank Eudy ended up on the reality series Big Brother. Frank appeared on the 14th and 18th seasons of Big Brother and his dad appeared at one point. Sid is way more intimidating than Frank, but you can see the resemblance in a few ways, especially the hair.
14 Dominic Gutierrez (Rey Mysterio)
Wrestling fans remember Dominic Gutierrez as the son of Rey Mysterio due to the controversial storyline back in 2005. Eddie Guerrero claimed to be the real father of Dominic leading to a ladder match with custody of Dominic on the line to remind you how ridiculous wrestling could be. Dominic is all grown up now and you wouldn’t be able to recognize him.
13 Devan Parker (Kane)
Kane has been married for over two decades and has a family that has gone under the radar. Despite being quite famous for a long time, Kane has been relatively quiet about his personal life. All his peers have their personal lives referenced while Kane just keeps it under wraps. Kane running for Mayor of Knox County in Tennessee has given us a slightly closer glimpse into his life.
12 Alana Leslie (Brutus Beefcake)
Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake had a very successful career basically thanks to being close friends with Hulk Hogan. The friendship allowed Beefcake to make a lot of money in both WWE and WCW. Beefcake deserves credit for finding ways to thrive despite not having the best in-ring talent. The friendship between Beefcake and Hogan ended in recent years. Beefcake has a lot of other people to care for in his life, like his daughter.
11 David Benoit (Chris Benoit)
The life of David Benoit is rather difficult to imagine given the tragic story of his father. Chris Benoit killed his wife Nancy and other son Daniel before taking his own life. David was the son from another marriage and had to live with the pain of knowing what happened at the end of his father’s life. Despite the controversy surrounding the decision, David decided to enter the wrestling business.
10 Jake Carter (Vader)
Vince McMahon reportedly disliked Vader due to being out of shape and a “slob” in the word used by others. Vader’s son Jake Carter is nothing like his dad in that respect. Carter signed with WWE for a developmental contract allowing him to work in FCW and NXT. The physique of Carter was the opposite of his dad. Unfortunately, the same could not be said about his wrestling talent.
9 Cody Hall (Scott Hall)
Scott Hall is one of the greats, but it is no secret that he has been dealing with personal demons for many years now. The family of Hall paid the price by missing out on their husband and father. Cody Hall missed out on Scott being there for him like most fathers would. The two had a strained relationship for many years until Scott started to get clean.
8 Amy Hennig (Mr. Perfect)
Mr. Perfect had a great career giving fans many great matches. The in-ring work of Curt Hennig was second to none and he lived up to the name of Mr. Perfect given to him by WWE. Everyone knows that Curtis Axel is the son of Perfect, but there was another wrestler trying to follow in his footsteps. Amy Hennig is the daughter of Curt and she tried to make it in the wrestling industry as well.
7 Tessa Blanchard (Tully Blanchard)
The stunning Tessa Blanchard has become one of the top women’s wrestlers in the world. Tessa wrestles all over the world having impressive matches against both men and women. The talent of Blanchard is obvious as she continues to become a bigger star. Blanchard is a familiar name as Tessa is the daughter of legendary wrestler Tully Blanchard.
6 Dakota Runnels (Goldust)
Longtime WWE fans will remember Dakota Runnels from the times she was referenced during the Attitude Era. Her parents Goldust and Terri Runnels occasionally made fans aware of Dakota. This was about two decades ago and Dakota has grown up in that time. Goldust and Terri had a bitter divorce, but they managed to try to stay cordial for the betterment of Dakota.
5 Brittany Page (Diamond Dallas Page)
The stunning good looks of Brittany Page makes her stand out as more than just the daughter of Diamond Dallas Page. Brittany was out of the public eye until DDP started to document his life for the DDP Yoga product. The early videos featuring Brittany moving into DDP’s home introduced her to fans of the program.
4 David Finlay (Fit Finlay)
David Finlay is currently making his name wrestling in New Japan. The talented young man has a strong background in wrestling as his father is the immensely respected Fit Finlay. Almost every wrestler in the industry has nothing but kind words to say about Finlay. The look, style and path of David is completely from his dad.
3 Ariel Toombs (Roddy Piper)
Ariel Toombs is one of the most attractive wrestling daughters. The late Roddy Piper is her father meaning she likely is one tough cookie. Ariel has been acting for a few years with the hopes of it making it big. Recent rumors have circulated that Toombs is teaming with fellow wrestling daughters Brooke Hogan, Brittany Page and Lacey Von Erich to create a women’s promotion.
2 Mya Lesnar (Brock Lesnar)
A surprising wrestling kid to surface in recent months is the daughter of Brock Lesnar. While Brock has been with Sable for about fifteen years now, Mya is the daughter from a prior relationship. Lesnar had twins with Mya and Luke. Pictures of Mya have leaked with the shocking revelation that she looks exactly like her father.
1 Gunner Calaway (The Undertaker)
Gunner Calaway has remained a relatively silent wrestling kid even though his dad is The Undertaker. One fact about Undertaker is that he tries to stay away from social media as much as possible and even avoids taking pictures fans will post. That made it even more entertaining when his son Gunner made a public Twitter page a few years ago.
From posting Childish Gambino song lyrics to sharing his favorite video games, Gunner showed his opinions to the world. The ginger hair is something he gets from his dad as Undertaker’s hair is red when he doesn’t dye it. Gunner appeared to be quite the hipster making it even more amazing that he was the son of The Undertaker. The social media page of Gunner has gone private since fans discovered it, but we realized just how different Undertaker’s son is from him.
