5 WWE Wrestlers You Didn’t Know Are Related!
The wrestling business has been around for a long time, and over the years it has become somewhat of a family affair. Today, there are famous wrestling families and multiple 2nd and 3rd generation superstars in WWE.
Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith
Two of the more popular superstars from the past generation Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith. The two, who were actually tag team champions together, are actually cousins in real life. This explains why the two were known for their great chemistry in and out of the ring. They both also have ties to the Hart family through marriage.
Jerry the King Lawler and The Honky Tonk Man
Jerry the King Lawler is not only the father of Grand Master Sexay, which most people know about, but he is also related to another superstar. Jerry is also cousin to The Honky Tonk Man, the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion of all time. The two actually squared off numerous times inside the ring, but in the end, Jerry will go down as the more popular of the two.
John Laurinaitis and Many
Everybody’s favorite RAW GM John Laurinaitis is actually related to more than one wrestler in WWE. Firstly, he is brother to Road Warrior Animal, one half of the Legion of Doom. The voice of People Power is also married to the mother of the Bella Twins, making him not only step-father to them, but also related to Daniel Bryan, Brie’s husband.
Along with the Hart family, the Guerreros are another major wrestling family. As it turns out, the late, great Eddie Guerrero’s oldest daughter is married to current WWE wrestler and resident tag-team jobber Aiden English. That’s right, Aiden would be the son-in-law of Eddie.
Bret The Hitman Hart
Bret the Hitman Hart and fellow Canadian Rowdy Roddy Piper are cousins. Of course, Hart is also related to tons of other wrestlers such as Natalya and his late brother Owen. Interestingly, Piper had said this a few times over the years but nobody really believed him, but Bret eventually confirmed the relation.
