20 Harry Smith

by way of

Harry Smith debuted almost a decade in the past in WWE as one a part of the Hart Dynasty. Displaying some potential, he wouldn’t understand even a modicum of it beneath the WWE banner. He would do what a variety of guys did, albeit he wasn’t as excessive a profile star on the time. He left WWE for the Land Of The Rising Solar. In NJPW, he made his bones as one half of the Killer Elite Squad.

Now he’s in MLW, taking his rightful place within the Hart Basis alongside Teddy Hart and Brian Pillman, Jr. He additionally seems increasingly like his dad, the sure-to-be Corridor Of Famer, Davey Boy Smith. Particularly with the additional muscle, Harry goes to be one of many driving forces of MLW. That’s till the WWE comes calling, or vice–versa. There ought to all the time be a Hart in WWE, and whereas Nattie is there now, there’s all the time room for a couple of extra.

Likelihood – DH Smith is coming again the moment he’s provided a deal.

19 Xia Brookside

by way of

Because the youngest competitor throughout this yr’s Mae Younger Basic, Xia Brookside confirmed a number of hearth, however she was clearly out of her league towards Io Shirai. However that doesn’t imply she doesn’t have numerous upside to her. At 20 years previous, she has much more to study earlier than really incomes a spot on any of WWE’s numerous rosters.

She took half within the inaugural NXT UK Ladies’s event and obtained defeated by the winner and inaugural champion, Rhea Ripley. However once more, nobody is anticipating the 20-year-old to take over the world. Together with her dad, the UK’s beloved Robbie Brookside as a coach in NXT, it’s solely a matter of time for Xia to get a full-time slot on both aspect of the NXT pond.

Likelihood – As quickly because the trainers assume she’s prepared (learn: maybe graduates from school, or spends extra time on the street), she’ll be a part of the roster.

by way of

Greater than anybody else on this record, Brian Pillman, Jr. appears a lot like his father that it is scary. The Unfastened Cannon was beloved by many within the enterprise that loads of legends have reached out to him. He’s presently in MLW, following in his father’s footsteps by siding with the Hart Basis.

17 Cody Corridor

by way of

He’s been a member of the Bullet Membership. He’s even rocked the pink blood-drip vest and tights his dad used to. Cody Corridor is a humongous greenhorn. However he’s one other second-generation star who’s quickly choosing up the enterprise. With “uncles” like Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman, he’s clearly NXT-bound as soon as the time is true.

Whereas Cody rocks the bald look, he’s deceptively large like his dad they usually have very comparable faces. Cody is the spitting picture of his dad and has already discovered a solution to differentiate himself, it’s gonna be survey time once more actual quickly.

Likelihood – Guess the farm that any child of a Kliq member no less than getting a shot within the WWE.

16 Dominic Gutierrez

by way of

To be truthful to the child, let’s all proper now acknowledge that Rey Mysterio is a one-of-a-kind celebrity who virtually singlehandedly introduced Lucha Libre to U.S. audiences within the nineties. To place that type of strain on Dominic simply wouldn’t be truthful. However with Lance Storm educating him, and his dad guiding him, the “son” of Eddie Guererro ought to have the ability to have a terrific profession.

Likelihood – If the WWE doesn’t check out the child, Rey’s present run may really feel just a little wasted. Getting his son’s foot within the door is likely one of the causes Rey determined to return again.

by way of

There are such a lot of wrestlers on this record which have quite a bit to stay as much as. None may need extra although that Colt Toombs, the son of Roderick Toombs, aka Rowdy Roddy Piper. Apart from loaning Ronda Rousey his dad’s jacket, Colt is an aspiring MMA fighter and wrestler.

If he makes it, it’s uncertain that Colt would resurrect Piper’s Pit. However the big grin and wild-eyed stare are unmistakably Roddy’s. If Colt is even a fraction of how good Roddy was on the stick, followers will see one other legend take middle stage.

Likelihood – He’s at present juggling choices of an MMA profession or a WWE profession. His dad’s shadow will eternally loom over him. However that shouldn’t cease him from getting a shot sometime.

14 Ted DiBiase Jr.

by way of

Whereas he did select to exit the enterprise, the reserving committee didn’t precisely do Ted DiBiase Jr. any favors. Except for Legacy, nearly every part they did with Jr. had him making an attempt to repeat his dad or play the “Fortunate Son” at each flip. WWE even gave the child, Meatsauce himself once they partnered him with Virgil.

What else would you anticipate WWE to do? Once they had Teddy Jr. WWE didn’t have a whole lot of expertise in second era athletes operating round. The firm was sure to make a number of bloopers, and if he grew a beard, he’d actually be a carbon copy of the unique Million Greenback Man.

Likelihood – The Lucky Son had a falling out together with his love of the enterprise. There’s no probability he needs to return again or the corporate would need to have him.

13 Cedric Rougeau

by way of

The Rougeau Brothers had one of many funniest theme songs a heel might have. Jacques went on to have an honest singles run because the Mountie and once more had success within the tag group ranks with PCO as The Quebecers. However man, did that man not simply expend some bridges, he burnt them down. In the event you consider the tales, he appreciated to make reserving himself in Quebec a precedence over everybody else.

His son, Cedric, whereas wanting like somebody Vince may fawn over, has but to crack into the WWE political universe. Sadly, he may be taking an excessive amount of after his dad. He supposedly received into it with Arn Anderson throughout his tryout.

As most individuals who’ve been 18 ought to concentrate on, that’s a loopy time in somebody’s life. Toss in Teddy’s Hart legacy and the wild world of wrestling and you’ve got a child who acquired an excessive amount of too quickly.

However Hart has been wrestling ever since and has lately been a drive on MLW. Whereas he has been a little bit of a firebrand prior to now, he has seemingly cleaned up his act. If he can hold the cats at house, maybe there truly is a future with him, particularly if he, Harry Smith, and Brian Pillman Jr. attempt to keep a package deal deal.

Likelihood – If he can maintain his antics in verify, his present run may assist individuals overlook about his previous and maybe there’s a spot for Teddy on the roster.

11 Amy Hennig

by way of

Mr. Good could be the best skilled wrestler of all-time. And not using a world championship, nevertheless, he stays second fiddle to a whole lot of different greats.

For a celebrity that was “WWE-trained,” the indies have taken to him and vice-versa. He turned “The Nightmare,” enjoying off his dad’s nickname.

It’s straightforward to distinguish between father and son when Cody occurs to not appear to be his dad in any respect. His charisma comes from being a part of this era of followers.
