Professional wrestling has been filled with second, third and even fourth generation wrestlers. Some have made it bigger than their family members, while others have flopped badly. We have already covered three installments of this in past with Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3. Some made it, while others faltered. These up and coming generational wrestlers are for the most part lesser known than say the more established ones like Natalya Neidhart, Harry Smith and Curtis Axel. Who will rise and who will fall in the latest list of pro wrestlers with a legacy to uphold?

Cal Bloom does look a bit more like Edge than he does his own father.
