5 WWE Superstars who teamed up with their fathers in a match
Sports entertainment or pro-wrestling can often be a family affair. In order to reach the top of the mountain, siblings have turned on each other, friendships have broken up and families have been torn apart.
There are many second and third-generation wrestlers in WWE. While some of them have upheld their predecessors' legacies, others surpassed their famous fathers and grandfathers and became more successful in the company.
However, there have been cases than have seen Superstars not only choose to follow in their fathers' footsteps, but also joining forces inside the ring to take on their rivals. In this article, we'll go back in time and examine these five father and son duos that teamed up in the ring.
#5 Vince and Shane McMahon
Shane McMahon found success in his father's billion-dollar company as an in-ring competitor. In his career, he has held the WWE European Championship, Hardcore Championship and he also held the SmackDown Tag Team Championship with The Miz. Vince, however, tops his son when it comes to World Title victories.
The chairman is a two-time World Champion, having held the WWE and ECW Championships one time each. Even though Shane aligned with Vince and The Corporation during The Attitude Era, his purchase of WCW caused a rift between the two, which finally subsided in 2006 after Shane-O-Mac became involved in a feud between his father and Shawn Michaels.
At Backlash, the McMahons teamed up and defeated Michaels and his tag team partner, a certain "higher power", who Shawn Michaels held in deep reverence. in a No Holds Barred tag team match. Their feud with HBK continued until SummerSlam 2006, where they lost to D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels and Triple H).
