8 moves that run in the family
Even though the WWE Universe has only gotten a small taste of all that this young Superstar has to offer, there is little doubt that his adoption of his WWE Hall of Fame father’s “Perfect Plex” stands as the crown jewel in his arsenal, an extremely useful tool in building the “brand” that is “Curtis Axel.”
Axel is not, however, the only Superstar to use his parent’s finishing maneuver to make a name for himself. See which other competitors have taken a page from their family’s playbooks.
"Super Fly" Jimmy Snuka & Tamina Snuka - The Super Fly Splash
One of the most memorable moments in WWE history was when “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka leaped off a steel cage to hit his prized finisher, the Superfly Splash, on Don Muraco at “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden. His daughter Tamina Snuka carries on that legacy today, having added the Superfly Splash to her repertoire as well.
Bret "Hit Man" Hart & Natalya - The Sharpshooter
The Sharpshooter is widely considered among the most devastating submission moves ever. With the iconic hold having been passed down from WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hit Man” Hart to his niece Natalya (who also happens to be the daughter of the “Hit Man’s” former tag partner, Jim Neidhart), it is clear that the third-generation Diva is destined to leave a pink-and-black legacy of her own.
Rocky Johnson & The Rock - The Dropkick
Everyone knows The Rock has always been very open about his connection to WWE and how much he treasures his lineage in the squared circle. That said, few may remember that when he first competed in WWE as Rocky Maivia, the future Great One paid homage to his father Rocky Johnson, by using his signature dropkick to get a leg up on the competition.
Randy Orton & "Cowboy" Bob Orton Jr. - The Superplex
Nine-time World Champion Randy Orton has unquestionably made one of the biggest impacts that the WWE has ever seen. Although he most often uses the RKO to vanquish the competition, another formidable weapon in The Viper’s tremendous offense is his earth-shattering superplex, which was previously made famous by none other than his father, “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr.
Rikishi & The Usos - The Running Rump Charge
To this day, Rikishi’s running rump charge continues to make the WWE Universe cringe. One can only imagine what it must have done to the countless opponents that were forced to endure it. It is no wonder, then, that The Usos have decided to adapt their father’s move to help them take the tag team division by storm.
Dusty Rhodes, Goldust & Cody Rhodes - The Drop Down Uppercut
The Rhodes family has a long history inside the squared circle, centered on the patriarch, NWA World Champion Dusty Rhodes. Although both Goldust and Cody have created their own unique barrage of offensive maneuvers, the drop uppercut is one favorite that has given both them a strong connection to the original “Son of a Plumber” as well as the upper hand in their matchups.
"The Million Dollar Man" & Ted DiBiase - The Million Dollar Dream
For all his money and influence, when it came down to it, The Million Dollar Man’s true bread and butter was the Million Dollar Dream, which struck fear into the hearts of many of his adversaries. The submission hold was so effective, in fact, that his son, Ted DiBiase, has used a modified version of the move to help turn his WWE dreams into realities.
