Professional wrestling has for the longest time been a family business, with the children of Superstars and Divas often finding their own way into the squared circle.
In the family
Names like The Rock, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt and Charlotte are examples of performers that have famous fathers that graced a WWE ring, and they could soon be joined by another second-generation star.
Rachael Ellering, the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering, has been training at Lance Storm's Wrestling Academy to follow her father into the wrestling business, according to Wrestling Inc.

Of course, Ellering is more aptly remembered for his influence outside of the ring, as the manager of the legendary tag team The Road Warriors between 1981 and 1997.
Ellering led the tandem of Animal and Hawk to two WWE Tag Team Championship reigns, as well as numerous other championships in promotions across America and Japan. He also had a short-lived stint between the ropes in AWA, at one point winning the company's Southern Heavyweight Championship.
Rachael herself has accomplished a great deal before making the decision to follow her father into professional wrestling. She was a powerlifting prodigy, winning a bronze medal at the 2014 World Powerlifting Championships.
There is no doubting her strength and physical endurance levels, but it will take some time before we're likely to see her tangling with the likes of Bayley, Emma and Dana Brooke in NXT.
However, WWE does like talent with genes tied to the wrestling business, particularly when it comes to Hall of Fame members.
Paul Ellering might have made his name as the mouthpiece of one of the most dominant tag teams in history, but his daughter is making strides to make her mark in the ring.
