Now, who do you think is taller between the two?

The WWE Universe has witnessed generations after generations of wrestlers entertain the crowd with their superhuman in-ring abilities and exceptional promo cutting abilities.

Some of these superstars have gone to have legendary careers while some never got the rub of the green and were forgotten rather easily.

But have you ever wondered, which out of these superstars have gone on to surpass their parents not figuratively, rather literally? With that, I mean in terms of height.

If Kane's father was in the WWE or had worked before and was taller than the Big Red Machine, then we would know of him, for he would have been one massive human being. Fortunately, we don't know about him. But there are some that we do know of.

So, without further ado, here are 5 WWE wrestlers who grew taller than their superstar parents:

#1 Goldust (Dusty Rhodes)

Goldust has been a part of the WWE for close to three decades now, helping him establish as not only a decorated veteran but also a legend within the industry.

However, before him, it was his father "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, who had entertained wrestling fans around the world and went on to become one of the most revered names in the industry.

The late great WWE Hall of Famer used to measure 1.85m during his time as a wrestler. Goldust has been fortunate enough to surpass his father by a distance in the height charts as the 48-year-old is 1.98m tall.

Goldust height: 1.98m (6ft 5.95in)

Dusty Rhodes height: 1.85m (6ft 0.83in)
