Wrestling has become a family affair in recent years since the current generation in WWE is made up of several families.

At present, the Anoa'i family appears to be dominating SmackDown but there are several other families out there that have proved that the business can be genetic.

Whilst the WWE Universe is aware of one member of a certain family, it may not be as well known that several current and former WWE Superstars have other members of their family in the business.

The following list looks at just five current and former WWE Superstars whose sisters are or were once, also wrestlers.

#5. Former WWE Superstar Alicia Fox and her sister Christina Crawford

Alicia Fox is a former Divas Champion in WWE who came into the company after she was recruited by John Laurinaitis while working as a model.

Fox was part of WWE for around 13 years before her departure back in 2019 and there was a time when both Fox and her sister Christina were contracted to the company at the same time.

Christina was signed to WWE on a developmental deal back in 2010 and worked for FCW and later made several appearances for NXT.

Christina worked with the likes of Kaitlyn, Audrey Marie, and Paige during her time in NXT, but was released from her contract in August 2012, just months after the show's rebranding.

Crawford then went on to a tryout with TNA and even made an appearance for World Xtreme Wrestling before leaving the business altogether. The former WWE Superstar went on to Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League in 2013 as a cheerleader.

In November 2020, Christina revealed on her Instagram page that she was now a qualified real estate agent.

Alicia Fox has now become an alumni for WWE and makes odd appearances for the company when needed. Fox's most recent appearance came back at WrestleMania 37 when she was alongside the rest of the roster for the opening of the show.

#4. Former WWE Superstar Jake "The Snake" Roberts

WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts is one of the most recognizable names in the history of the company.

Roberts was considered to be one of the best talkers of his time and has since been able to continue to work in the business as a manager in AEW. Whilst Roberts and WWE seemingly still have a good relationship after the star made several appearances up until 2014, Roberts opted to join AEW in the fall of 2019 and has since revealed that he has signed a contract extension with the company.

It is fairly well-known that Roberts comes from a wrestling family since his father Grizzly Smith was also a wrestler, as were his brother Michael Smith and half-sister Robin Smith.

Known as "Rockin" Robin, she was a former WWF Women's Champion and left the company with the Championship in 1990 when the company opted to retire the title. The title remained inactive until 1993, but Robin retired from the business in 1992 after a short stint on the Independent Circuit.

Robin later went on to open a real estate appraisal business after moving to Louisiana.

#3. Former WWE Superstar Deuce

Deuce is perhaps best known for his stint in WWE where he was part of former SmackDown Tag Team Champions Deuce 'n' Domino.

Deuce is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy "The Superfly" Snuka and it's now known that his sister Tamina went on to join WWE following his exit.

Deuce joined the company in January 2007 and was released from the company in the summer of 2009. His release came just a year before his sister stepped into the wrestling business.

Tamina began training in 2009 before being signed by WWE in 2010 and has since remained with the company over the past decade. At present, Tamina is one half of the WWE Women's Tag Team Champions alongside the daughter of Hall of Famer Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Natalya.

Deuce has continued to wrestle on the Independent circuit since his release whilst also working a number of odd jobs. Tamina and Deuce are also the first-ever brother and sister to have both won Tag Team Championship gold.

#2. Former WWE Superstar Curtis Axel

Curtis Axel is the son of WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Perfect Curtis Axel, but the former Intercontinental Champion isn't the only member of his family who was gifted the wrestling gene.

Whilst Axel was able to make it to WWE, his sister Amy also decided to lace up her wrestling boots to continue her father and grandfather's legacy.

In the past, Amy has signed a developmental deal with WWE and was trained at Harley Race's WLW School.

Hennig is a former three-time WLW Women's Champion but was never able to reach the heights that her brother and father achieved in WWE.

Her brother Curtis Axel was part of WWE's roster for 13 years from 2007 until his release from the company in 2020. Axel was one of the stars who were released from the company in April 2020 when WWE was forced to make budget cuts following the COVID-19 pandemic.

#1. Current WWE Superstar Io Shirai

Io Shirai is currently part of WWE on their NXT brand where she is one-half of the Women's Tag Team Champions alongside Zoey Stark.

Shirai is a former NXT Women's Champion but had already become a well-known name in the business ahead of her work in WWE.

During her time in Japan, Io spent several years working as a tag team wrestler alongside her sister Mio. The two women won several Championships throughout their time together before they were joined by Kana (now known as Asuka in WWE) and formed the Triple Tails stable.

Io later broke away from the group and went on to become a singles star, whilst her sister retired from the business following a neck injury in 2015. Mio has since gone on to begin working as a referee instead. Mio also announced that she and her husband had welcomed their first child in June 2017.
