  • Father's Day 2018 WWE's roster is full of second-generation talent.  The McMahons are obviously well-known as a fourth generation family of promoters, but there are wrestlers, producers, referees, trainers and writers whose fathers made their bones in the pro-wrestling business.  These men were not only in-ring performers, but promoters, bookers, trainers, announcers, managers and more.                                               Robby and Xia BrooksideBob ArmstrongBrillanteRobby Brookside**Carlos ColonAxel DieterPaul ElleringRic FlairDavid Finlay Sr.Mick FoleyRicky "Desperado" GonzalesCurt HennigJerry JarrettRicky KnightJim NeidhartVince McMahonVincent J.
