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 six installments of this in past with Volume 1, Volume 2, Volume 3, Volume 4, Volume 5 and Volume 6. 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 The Rock, Bray Wyatt and Joe Hennig.

-1 is already a monster as he’s just going after everyone. I love that kid and I’m glad AEW is helping the kid out.

I definitely like that he’s got such a great support system for him & his family thanks to Khan, whether he chooses to follow in his dad’s footsteps or not. But should he decide to? He’ll definitely have some the best trainers training him.
