WWE's greatest families - Part 1
Everybody loves a good family story even the WWE. After all what’s not likeable about family members having each others backs or even better smashing each other up. Be it families coming together to defend each other or going at each others throats, a family saga has always brought the eyeballs to the television sets and the arenas.
There have been many so-called families that have been part of the WWE folklore – the most famous of which are the Undertaker, Kane and the late Paul Bearer. The latest bunch of demons – The Wyatt’s also refer to themselves as a family( though they seem to be more like bunch of loonies let out from the asylum). However, if we look for real families that fight together or against each other, there are a few that rise above the rest in terms of both charisma and success. Lets take a look at the best 6 families that have fought inside a WWE ring
5) The Guerreros
The Guerrero family is one the most well known and loved families from Mexico who have fought inside the ring.
The family’s first ever pro wrestle was Salvador Guerrero Quesada better known as Gory Guerrero. Best known for inventing Submission holds like the Gory special – a back-to-back backbreaker submission hold and the Camel Clutch.
All four of Gory’s sons joined the wrestling business but it was his youngest – Eddie who won over the hearts of the fans. Be it the WWE, the WCW, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Extreme Championship Wrestling, he always won the Gold. Add that to his infectious attitude and personality, he easily became a fan favourite.
Such was his popularity that he claimed every title available in the WWE. His biggest achievement in the WWE came when he won the WWE Championship from Brock Lesnar at No Way Out in 2004. Tragically, he passed away on Nov 13, 2005 after suffering an acute heart failure.
His wife Vickie(Excuse me) is currently the GM of Smackdown and has become one of the most hated and most entertaining characters in the sport. His daughter Shaul currently wrestles in NXT and was the only FCW Womens’s champion who also held the Queen of FCW tiara at the same time.
