When it comes to nepotism in wrestling, there are a lot of failed projects. There are examples of people who failed like David Sammartino (Son of Bruno Sammartino), David Flair (Son of Ric Flair), Curtis Axel (Son of Curt Henning), Ted DiBiase Jr. (Son of Ted DiBiase), etc. but there are rare cases of successful nepotism projects because of their talent that they offered to the table.
