It often happens that kids turn to the same professions as their parents, and the WWE is no different. The girls grow up and watch their parents hanging out with people from their own profession and that undeniably makes an impact and has led to some tremendous wrestlers. Although they may not join the sport in the same capacity as their parents, there is still no denying that there is still a wrestling association in their life.
The first reason may be the natural flair towards the sport. The second is the backing of their parents, readily available advice on the sport and an easy route into the industry. Getting something through connections isn’t the same as starting out fresh and these smart girls know it. On this list are the hottest daughters of WWE Superstars who chose to take advantage of their parents’ legacy in some way or the other.
If you have followed wrestling for long and had seen these girls as tiny tots with their Mama and Papa, then let us warn you that these chicks are all grown up and have come into their own and are also absolutely amazing to look at! These girls are smart and good looking. Even though they had their parents to back them up, they could not have made it this far without a bit of talent and their hot looks.
20. Amy Hennig
Amy is the daughter of late Curt Hennig (and the granddaughter of Larry Hennig) who was a great wrestler. Curt debuted in 1980, and took home several championships during his time in the WWF. Hennig is also credited with bringing credibility to the Intercontinental Championship.
Her brother, Joe Hennig, has also taken to his father’s profession. She has had the great fortune of being in the company of the greats, but talk about the pressure being on! Although her father “Mr Perfect” passed away 11 years ago, Amy is busy showing the world she is no less than perfect herself. She entered the world of wrestling after training at Harley Race’s wrestling school, but she surely needs more than a push if she wants to kickstart her career in a big way.
Her main claim to fame came from the fact that she was a 3 time, WLW Ladies Champion in the World League Wrestling. I mean granted, it’s not nearly as prestigious as the WWE but I bet she still got to wear a pretty cool belt. Though if we’re being honest, Curt was not the best looking man, so we should be grateful that she didn’t get all of his genes! We wish her luck with making use of the Hennig family name.
19. Jessie Belle Smothers
Jessie Belle is the daughter of former WWF, ECW and WCW wrestler Tracy Smothers. While he may not have any title reigns under his name, kudos goes to Tracy for being able to bounce around different federations. Clearly he was also having some fun outside of the ring, because his daughter is gorgeous! Jessie has been competing in TNA’s developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling since 2011. That’s not the only place she has gained experience though. Taking the ring name Jessie Belle Smothers, she also participated in Shine Wrestling which was a women-centric promotion.
As you can imagine with social media being as prevalent as it is, Jessie is very active on Twitter and very vocal about her support for fellow female wrestlers.
We are all for her and we hope there were will be more female athletes vying for other female athletes in the near future. If there is one thing we need in this world, it’s empowering our better halves. And, well, we are also listening to her because she is pretty hot. Okay, forget that we just said that!
Unfortunately we probably won’t see her anywhere near a ring anytime soon, her last match was back in 2014 in which she lost to Kacee Carlilsle.
18. Bronwyne Billington
Bronwyne Billington’s father Thomas Billington (Dynamite Kid) is one of many wrestling legends that have trained with the Hart family. When she was asked about her relationship with the wrestling business growing up, Billington stated “I was born and raised in Calgary Canada. I am also related to the Hart family and grew up very close to them and the wrestling business.” And that she knew she wanted to be a wrestler after getting to see “Stampede wrestling…in its hay day. My Dad wrestled there, my uncle Bret, Jim the Anvil, Davey boy Smith, Chris Benoit, Brian Pillman and the list goes on and on.”
Hard to not get inspired when that is the company you surround yourself with!
She calls herself the Dynamite Doll and is making sure she keeps her dad’s name alive. She is a pro wrestling valet and manages her hubby Dan Vander Griendt who is a fellow wrestler. They also perform together and call themselves the Dynamite Duo (under the ring names The Dynamite Doll and Dynamite Dan Myers). It’s wonderful to see Billington getting involved in the same sport as her husband, especially when you consider the amount of support he must receive from her family members!.
17. Mikala Smith
Mikala Smith is one of the very few people who are lucky to have both her parents in wrestling. She is the granddaughter of Grizzly Smith and her mother was a valet by the name of Baby Doll. Her father wrestled as Sam Houston and Mikala’s ring name is Samantha Starr (no resemblance there, just saying). It was the birth of her parents’ second child that caused Baby Doll to step away from the ring. Though her parents’ relationship unfortunately ended in divorce in 1995.
If she didn’t get good advice from them, she could always turn to her uncle, who just happens to be the Hall of famer, Jake The Snake!
It looks like this hottie is in it with all her heart because she has spent five years training to be a wrestler.
While she does not seem to have her family’s talents, she did win the VOW Queen of the Ring back in 2016.
Though one thing is clear when you look at Mikala, and that is that she has the beauty required to captivate the WWE Universe. Combine that with her never-say-die attitude and Mikala may be all set to taste WWE success.
16. Kayla Armstrong
When it comes to the most respected position in the WWE ring, there may not be a position that is more valuable than a good referee. After all, you have an awful one and the ending of that match may go a heck of a lot differently!
So while they may not be big and bulky, you better respect Kayla Armstrong’s father’s job, because Scott was a referee from 1983-2000. He also has experience as a producer for the company, so after taking one look at her, you may be hoping that he has the connections to get his gorgeous daughter in the ring.
Her uncle Brian James is also no stranger to the squared circle, though you may recognize him better as Road Dogg. After all, what kid did not love him for his time in the New Age Outlaws and his awesome theme song?! Though I don’t think Scott ever allowed Road Dogg to pull out a match for family’s sake.
Although Kayla has not turned into a WWE superstar, she could soon be. She had a tryout soon after college and it seems she is determined to make her mark. So, if you have not heard of her yet, worry not, she could soon be the new WWE pinup. And the reason she really is on the list is because, well, she is super good looking too.
15. Alana Leslie
We have totally fallen head over heels for this lovely blonde who goes by “Baby Beefcake” (If you are a true WWE fan, you should have guessed who the father of the baby is by now!). She is the sweet little daughter of former WWF Champ Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake. Beefcake, the legendary superstar known for his cutting and strutting, is a great influence to have in your life and it looks like this lady is making good use of it. She was signed with Jersey Championship Wrestling but we have not really heard much about her since. When she was signed by the company, it was noted as being the first time that JCW was signing an untrained wrestler who had the passion to learn the business.
In an interview, she also opened up about her biggest inspiration, saying “Of course [it’s] my father. He is and was the greatest champion of all time to me. But then there is my godfather Hulk. You know when you’re growing up, sometimes you don’t always want to talk to your mom or dad about certain things? Uncle Terry is always there for me.”
Surely, with a dad and uncle like that, you can imagine she felt pretty comfortable being around wrestlers throughout her life.
14. Brooke Hogan
When your dad is Hulk Hogan, you don’t really need to worry about anything. By which we mean, the door is open in the world of showbiz. Brooke is a musician and started her career in 2002. Her single even made it to the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She also collaborated with her father on their television series Brooke Knows Best. She couldn’t exactly strike it big as the next Britney Spears, but she surely got a great head start because of her father’s connections.
Brooke was quick to defend her father after he was released from the WWE following his racism scandal. The 27-year-old, decided to use a poem posted to her Facebook to try and implore fans to forgive her father. In it she said
“If you knew my father, you would know how hard he fought… and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.
‘We always fight a battle that people never see, and sometimes when you’re hurting, you don’t think logically.
‘Human isn’t perfect, and perfect is not he, but I can tell you one thing, it’s just not what it seems.
‘Cause If you knew the dad I knew, you’d know he raised me well. He taught me folks are so much more than shades could ever tell.”
When the entire world feels like it’s turning their back on you, as Hogan may have felt, it must have meant the world to him that his daughter expressed such loving sentiments.
13. Tamina Snuka
This hot second-generation wrestler is the daughter of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka. Superfly is a Hall of Famer, so you can imagine a lot of fans are out there with aspirations that his daughter will be just as passionate about the sport of wrestling. In 2012, she was ranked as #19 out of the top 50 female wrestlers according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated.
She had a great start when she received her Lia Maivia scholarship to train at the Wild Samoan Training Center in Minneola. Snuka was signed o a contract with the WWE back in 2009, but has not been able to take home any championships.
She has teamed up as a valet/manager for the Usos, as well as having an on-screen relationship with Santino Marella, but that’s hardly what her father must have envisioned for her.
Snuka is clearly passionate about the sport though, including making a full recovery after tearing her ACL. While people are not sure what direction her character is going to head in next, there is no doubt that she is absolutely gorgeous and has the ability to captivate the audience.
If you’re not happy with how she’s being used on television, you can also check out her character in WWE 2k15 and WWE 2k16!
12. Shaul Guerrero
Shaul is known to her fans as Raquel Diaz and is the daughter of the late Eddie Guerrero and Vicki Guerrero. Her career has been full of ups and downs, but she had a serious scare back in 2012.
Shaul was training in FCW alongside Joey Mercury when he noticed that she was suffering from a significant eating disorder “I was really sick and I was just not mentally okay and physically doing a really bad job of doing what I needed to do and they finally convinced me to go into rehab for a long time disease I had. I took two months off and stayed in an (rehab) facility.”
Eating disorders are incredibly serious, and becomes an even higher danger if you are going after such a physical job. It’s always unfortunate when Divas turn to means that are not healthy to try and maintain their figure.
When healthy and in the ring, Diaz is no joke, and held the title of Queen of FCW for a total of 119 days. We can see the winning streak in her, but she really needs to find some stability if she is to continue to grow as a wrestler. She recently (Jan 6, 2016) married fellow wrestler Matt Rehwoldt.
11. Noelle Foley
The stunning daughter of Mick Foley has chosen not to pursue a career as an in-ring performer. Instead, she hosts shows on YouTube. Though when Mick was asked about it, he explained why not do both? “My daughter hosts a YouTube show, and she has a nice presence. I think she can have a nice presence hosting a show for WWE…It’s a multifaceted company, and there are a lot of positions for people with personalities. Yea, I’d love for her to work there.”
Just as long as she isn’t going to be falling off Hell in a Cell or taking chair shots, right Mick?
She is very active on social media where she relays her thoughts related to wrestling. She said in an interview— “I was literally born into wrestling. It’s all I’ll ever know, well, I hope I’ll know more, but yeah I’ve just grown into it. I watch every week. Go to a bunch of shows.” She surely seems to love wrestling even if the passion for it may not be as strong as her father’s. There were rumors she was training to perform inside the ring, but nothing has manifested yet. It sure would be a different experience watching her there.
10. Tessa Blanchard
Here’s another girl from the third generation of wrestlers. Tessa is the granddaughter of Joe and the daughter of Tully. While they may not be quite as impressive as some WWE hardware, this lovely lass has held the Women’s Championship in ECWA and also wrestles for WSU. Well, she surely has proven her talent, but much needs to be seen about her future in wrestling. Her fans (or fans-in-the-making should we say) think she is still green and needs to work on her moves (in-ring moves of course) before she can be a wrestling great.
When she was asked by interviewers as to why she got into the business, Tessa stated “Wrestling has always been in the family, it wasn’t until about 2012 at the WWE HOF/WrestleMania weekend that I actually became interested in pursuing a life in this business myself. Seeing the fans, the talent, and the company gave me a taste of what it is like. After stepping in the ring I became addicted.”
She also had the helpful advice of her Father who said “Never let them know you’re tired. Never let them know you’re hurting. Just keep going.” Definitely some inspiring words that may end up being necessary when you consider she is working for an industry in which you are constantly pushing yourself to your limits.
This hot blonde wrestler is the daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and Ellie Hart, who is the daughter of Stu Hart, which makes her a third generation wrestler. She has won the WWE Divas Championship and was also featured in Total Divas TV show. She received formal professional training in the Hart family “Dungeon” from her uncles Ross and Bruce Hart, becoming the first woman to do so. Natalya has sure made good use of her training by winning the Divas Championship. We only hope that she lives up to the expectations of her parents and makes them real proud.
Many women out there are ecstatic to see the women’s division start to gain more respect in the WWE, and you can imagine Natalya is all about that action. When she was asked about what she would change about the WWE, Natayla stated “I would like to continue to see equality among the females and the males. It is really encouraging to see that the WWE is making the change with two divas matches at WrestleMania. It’s huge. There have been WrestleManias where Divas were not even part of and sitting on the sidelines, and pretending that you are happy for everyone when not you are not included is not easy.”
Let’s hope the feeling of Divas not being included is not one that is going to be re-felt for quite some time.
8. Beans Hart
If you knew what Beans’ younger brother is called (Blade) you would not be surprised why this lovely lady’s got a name like that. Although she has not really made her wrestling debut, like every other WWE kid, she too harbors aspirations to join the big bad sport and is reportedly in training. It was tweeted back in 2013 that Beans stated “I work my ass off #dontgiveup #future #wwe #wwe diva.”
This is a tough sport to break into and nothing less than greatness seems to be able to get a crack at the WWE. Though unfortunately Beans was probably not planning on becoming pregnant, which as of right now seems to have put an end to her wrestling aspirations. Thankfully by looking at her beautiful blonde hair…and other assets, it should be clear that modelling may be a career that still holds a lot of promise.
We wish her luck and even though we can’t say anything about her wrestling prowess as of yet, as a superstar daughter she is hot, and if we’re being honest, that’s really just the main thing we were looking for when it comes to completing this list!
7. Bianca Carelli
This young little hottie is the daughter of WWE wrestler Santino Marella. She was the winner of Miss Teen Ontario-World in 2013 and has already made the first steps towards making a mark of her own on the world. After all, aren’t most WWE girls from the pageant background? They aren’t exactly giving out trophies to women that aren’t good looking!
We do hope that if and when she does get into wrestling, she is able to live up to the family name. Bianca was given the platform to talk about her family not long after winning the competition. She said, “My family always encourages me to pursue my dreams and to strive for the best. Without my family I would not be where I am today or have accomplished half of what I have been able to. I have been dancing since the age of 4 and I have danced competitively for several years.”
Personally, we think a nice little girl like that has a lot waiting for her in the beauty world rather than in wrestling, but you never know what the future has in store for this young lady. We just wouldn’t blame her if she doesn’t want to run the risk of ruining that pretty face.
6. Ariel Teal Toombs
During the golden era of wrestling, if there was one name that you did not want to mess with, it was Rowdy Roddy Piper. Hot Rod, as he was known, was an amazing asset for the company and is well deserving of his place in the Hall of Fame. He was even outstanding as an actor, starring as a wrestler (shocking), in an amazing episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. So, when the time came, what do you think his daughter took up? Acting, of course (although you may argue that all wrestlers are actors, but we’ll leave that discussion for another day). She has appeared alongside her father in Legion: The Final Exorcism. See how it worked for her? Superstar kids can choose any field they want to pursue, but in any industry where you are in front of a camera, it does not hurt to look good.
Toombs also opened up to TMZ shortly after the passing of her Father, to state that he was supposed to join her on her debut musical album. While there is not a heck of a lot of proof that Hot Rod was a talented singer, one thing that was always for sure was that if Roddy had a mic in his hands, all eyes should have been on him. It looks like his daughter gets all eyes on her, but for a very different reason!
5. Brittany Page
Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) is a hero when it comes to wrestling, but we’re also really grateful for the impact he’s had on the world outside of wrestling as well. DDP is known for rehabilitation work and much contribution to the world of yoga (a true yogi, we’d say), and he just happens to be the father of Brittany Page, who as you can see, is a knockout.
Brittany Page was thankfully able to inherit her mother’s looks and some of her dad’s less abusive passions. Like her father, she is a yoga instructor and is making sure she contributes as much as she can to her dad’s yoga program. I definitely don’t think it would take very long looking at Page before realizing that you really did want to spend more time today increasing your flexibility. It doesn’t look like she is heading for the wrestling ring any time soon, at least not as a wrestler, but we wish her luck in all her endeavours. Who knows, maybe Britney will be able to take her exercises and stretching routines to the locker rooms? With a face and body like she has, something tells me she would be far from an unwelcomed presence in the locker room.
Though no matter what field of work she ends up choosing as a career, Brittany, may you stay pretty always!
4. Charlotte Flair
She is the daughter of one of the greatest wrestlers of all time—Ric Flair. As you can imagine, this means that growing up, wrestling was something that was always around. She opened up in an interview about what it was like to have such a workaholic as a father
“I never understood how he could just continue to go and go and go. I’d say he had a hard time when he retired and I never understood that. ‘You’ve retired. You’ve worked your whole life. Why do you still want to wrestle?’ Today, now I understand. All he ever wanted to do was entertain the fans. When you absolutely love what you do… being a part of this NXT/WWE family, I get it now. You’re with them more than your own family sometimes.”
This hot blonde has taken to her father’s footsteps and is slowing making history for her own credentials in the ring.
She is already only the second woman in the history of the game to win Rookie of the Year from Pro Wrestling Illustrated. If you jog your memory a bit, you’d realize that it’s an award that her daddy darling has already won. It looks like she is on the right track and it won’t be long before this hot and talented lady has made history, but something tells me she probably won’t be bringing in 10+ World Heavyweight Championships over her career. Though she does look much better than Ric in spandex, so at least she definitely has that going for her.
Paige has been in the world of wrestling for more than eight years and you would be amazed to know that she is only 23 years old. She won the championship in her debut match and at 21 was the youngest champion in the Divas title’s history. She has also been the longest reigning champion (308 days) in the history of WWE. Her mother Julia Hamer-Bevis wrestled when she was seven months pregnant with her (…seems like a questionable decision). Julia has surely had a tough time, but it’s clear that passion for wrestling was passed onto her daughter. Paige has the benefit of being a WWE Diva during a time in society in which they are getting a lot more respect for their in-ring game, and not just because they happen to be very good looking.
Paige opened up about her experiences with the WWE and the changing of Diva expectations, stating “Yeah exactly and Vince [McMahon] is backing the whole thing, all of this is his doing, he really loves the Divas right now, which is awesome. I’m so happy that we have him and we’re really under his wing right now, he’s really pushing it. And we’re taking up most of the shows!”
The hope is that Paige, like Charlotte and others on this list, can help make a name for themselves in the wrestling industry for their talent, and in the process, inspire countless women to try and do the same.
2. Lacey Von Erich (Kerry Von Erich)
The entire Von Erich family has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame (that was in 2009). It’s quite obvious that this lady grew up on a constant diet of wrestling (You know what we mean!) She is the daughter of Kerry Von Erich and the granddaughter of Fritz Von Erich. With such a lineage, how could Lacey have backed out? Although this 29-year-old is not actively involved in wrestling anymore, she has had her share of wins and losses. She now runs an advertising company in California and was a member of TNA’s The Beautiful People.
While you can hope she had a positive experience with the WWE, an interview taken back in 2014 would speak otherwise. “WWE was very political. I wasn’t in there yet. They were like, ‘You’re a Von Erich. You better be amazing at wrestling,’ and things like that. And I wasn’t. I’m more of an actress than I am a wrestler. I’d rather play a character than get hurt on the mat.”
Lacey went onto state how TNA made her feel a lot more embraced as a member of their family, and that it was a far better organization to try and work for. I’m sure her relatives wouldn’t have been too pleased to hear that!
1. Stephanie McMahon
When it came to thinking up this list, Stephanie was the clear choice for number one. She is the daughter of Vincent McMahon, the WWE head honcho, and to her credit, she has also spent some time in the ring. Not only is she hot to look at, she has done wonders to her own career in wrestling. Stephanie backs her husband Triple H in his wrestling endeavors too, and their stable The Authority was on television for quite some time before disbanding in April.
She is the Chief Brand Officer of WWE at the moment and has worked with WWE since 1998. With her dad being the head of WWE and all, she could have kicked back and had an easy life. But easy is not for Stephanie, or for anyone in the McMahon family for that matter. She is a wrestler in her own right and has even won the WWF Women’s Championship once. Whether or not you think Stephanie is the sexiest daughter in the world of wrestling, there is no doubt that she is easily the most memorable for the casual fan. That, combined with her overall impact on the world of wrestling, makes it easy to place Ms. Triple H at the top of our list. Plus, I mean, are you really going to take the chance of not putting her at #1 and risk running into the wrath of Triple H? I didn’t think so!
