Best parent and child combination


Recommended Posts

If only we had some Pepe Casas footage. Even if he was a terrible wrestler, his sons (Negro Casas, Heavy Metal, El Felino) are/were so great it almost doesn't even matter.


Verne and Greg Gagne came to mind as well. Verne of course being a total legend and Greg is one of the most underrated wrestlers ever if you listen to the narrative surrounding him instead of actually watching the dude work.

Bob Orton, Sr./Jr. Have to be up there too. Shame we don't have more of Sr. I mean, same with Warren/Nick Bockwinkel. Or Gory Guerrero/Pick a Kid.


Really, though. The answer has to be Johnny/Greg Valentine, right? No one listed here feels all that close in ring from the footage we have.

I'd go Dusty/Dustin right now.


Others considered

Johnny/Greg Valentine (just haven't seen enough of the old footage personally)

Ric/Charlotte Flair (needs time to sort it out)

Gory/Eddie Guerrero (Haven't seen a ton of Gory, but Eddie is a personal favorite)

Blackjack Bulligan/Barry Windham

Alfonso Dantes and Apolo and Cesar Dantes

Dory Funk Sr. gives me the impression of Terry and Dory Jr.'s love child, and I mean that in the nicest way. Dory's look and Terry's personality. I suspect he could go in the ring, but we've only got eight minutes of footage to back that up.


Best one not yet mentioned: Rocky and Dwayne Johnson. The younger Rock is an all time great. His dad is a fringe Hall of Fame candidate in his own right.


Edit: One more, Tony and Matt Borne. Matt was very good. I've never heard anyone talk of him in higher esteem than Tony.
