The wrestling world features more relatives working together than most other lines of work. We have seen many second or third generation wrestlers try their luck in the industry with hopes of following in the footsteps of their parents. That’s a very common thing today, with the aspiring talent likely seeing the life their parent lives and wanting to achieve the same goals to make them proud. There’s another form of family that is also more common in wrestling than you would realize on the surface. Various siblings have been a part of the business with combinations of brothers, sisters, or brothers and sisters.
Many worked as tag teams and it makes the most sense. Tag partners need to have a sense of trust and the ability to be on the same page at all times in the wrestling ring. Who better to have that connection with than your brother or sister? Not all of the siblings are in teams. Some work frequently against each other or just don’t have any association aside from being the same business. The sibling stories will sometimes see both parties succeed such as Bret Hart and Owen Hart. Both men managed to gain success with their own identities without harming the other.
That isn’t the case in most of the sibling scenarios in pro wrestling sadly. The majority of stories will see one of the brothers or sisters being better than the rest and that means someone is viewed as being worse. Considering the drastic difference in talents between each performer entering the wrestling business, the math just makes sense than some wrestlers aren’t as good as others. That applies to relatives in these situations. We are going to take a look at some of the stories that shows one of the siblings failing to compare to the others. These are the top ten wrestlers that were significantly worse than their siblings.
10 Matt Hardy
9 Rick Steiner
8 John Laurinaitis
7 Bo Dallas
6 Bruce Hart
4 Lanny Poffo
3 Stevie Ray
1 David Flair
Ric Flair could easily be argued as the greatest in-ring performer of all time, so it’s not that ridiculous knowing that two of his children entered the wrestling world for WCW and WWE. David Flair was given a big contract by WCW in the 90s, with a noteworthy push, and it flopped. In turn, WWE signed Ric’s daughter Charlotte to a developmental contract many years later and it gave them one of the top female stars in the industry today. Charlotte picked it up quickly and has a natural athletic ability that didn’t carry over to her older brother. David’s failure is one of the biggest in pro wrestling history. It wasn’t his fault that WCW decided to give him national television time over some of the best wrestlers in the world before he was ready, but his body of work is among the worst in wrestling history.
