There have been many, many families involved with the pseudo-sport; generally, it begins with a successful patriarch, whose children all follow him into the business. If you’re part of a wrestling family, you have an in-built gimmick ; you’re a second-generation or, less likely, third-generation wrestler trying to live up to the legacy of your forefathers.
You also have in-built allies when things get rough; namely, your brothers. Sometimes however, family members are portrayed as antagonistic towards each other, especially if they are brothers. A Wrestling Family may be an actual family, such as the Guerreros or the Harts, or it may be fictional, such as the Andersons or the Dudleys.
A family may even blend the two, as did the Von Erichs primarily made up of the Adkisson family, though two members, Waldo and Lance Von Erich, weren’t Adkissons. A family may not even be acknowledged on screen such as the Anoa’i family, whose members include almost every Wild Samoan in North American wrestling [and the one sumo wrestler ] , though its presence is certainly felt. Compare to It Runs in the Family. See also Circus Brat , for another type of performance which runs in the family.

Wrestling is a popular sport that dates back many thousands of years. When the sport was first introduced years ago it was performed mostly to ensure good harvests. Sumo wrestling’s popularity quickly spread, becoming a more public and widespread event. Matches were usually brutal, the loser often expected to forfeit his life. By the 7th century Sumo had fallen under the protection of the warring Shogunite regime and was largely banned as a public spectacle.
Only the samurai, or warrior class, were allowed to practice it as part of their military training. Once peace was finally restored Sumo once again fell under the backing of the Japanese royal courts and was dubbed the Imperial sport. By the 15th century Sumo wrestling had adopted a set of strict rules and the most talented champions were offered aid by powerful feudal lords.
This is done by using one or a series of 70 accepted Sumo moves, some of which are pushing, slapping, hoisting, tripping, pinning or throwing. Six 15 day tournaments are held each year in Japan in the cities of Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. Suspended above the ring is a wooden structure that resembles the roof of Shinto shrine. Each Sumo tournament begins with much pageantry and ceremony. After gathering in a circle, clapping hands and performing lengthy and ritualistic postulating, they leave the ring, making way for the other lower-ranked sumatori who then carry out the same ritual.

With a slow and assured swagger that defies his aging body, Edingwe Moto na Ngenge, the most decorated Congolese wrestler of all time, steps into the ring. At about six-foot-six and more than pounds, with a prominent brow, deep-set eyes, a mohawk and a large dragon tattoo across the left side of his chest, he cuts an imposing figure. Edingwe, whose moniker, Moto na Ngenge, translates to Man of Great Power, struts back and forth across the ring with his shoulders thrown back, stamping his feet and contorting his face into grotesque expressions, toying with his opponent and whipping his loyal fans into a frenzy.
He takes a dead snake from his trainer at the edge of the ring, wraps it around his neck for a moment, then holds it tight with one hand close to its head and the other at the end of its tail, thrusting it repeatedly and exaggeratedly in the direction of Edingwe. The great champion is momentarily stunned by this act of sorcery, and with his eyes wide in surprise he becomes rooted to the spot, rocking back and forth like a tall tree in the wind.
But Edingwe soon grows tired of this impetuous display, breaks the spell, and with a swift extension of his right arm and a raised, open palm, calls on the spirits of his ancestors. Edingwe kneels beside his hapless opponent, grasps at his midriff and appears to extract his intestines like long pieces of pink elastic. He holds them aloft and then lowers them into his gaping mouth; as he eats them, blood pours from the corners of his lips onto his chest.
A government minister sitting near the ring faints. Lituka beat his Western opponents by drawing on wrestling techniques that in fact long preceded the influence of the American school.

Styles brawl for the U. But there’s also going to be some action outside the ring, as a group of WWE fans are planning a weekend of rallies calling on the WWE to remove Donald Trump from the wrestling promotion’s Hall of Fame. In the wake of Donald Trump’s press conference this week in which he equivocated white supremacists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, a group of fed-up wrestling fans will be rallying on Friday at 5 p.
The group will be calling on the company to reject racism by tossing Trump from an honored spot with the company. While this isn’t the first attempt to get the WWE to disassociate itself from Trump, John Stevens, a year-old Brooklyn resident, told Gothamist that he and a group of friends who are in town for the summer extravaganza decided that they’d had enough of Trump’s association with the wrestling promotion and decided to shout it in the streets.
I can’t wrap my brain around the fact that they’d leave him in there, take Hogan out and claim they say they care about racism. With everyone in town for SummerSlam weekend, the group decided to take action. In addition to setting up a website , Stevens said that some of his friends went to an autograph signing held by current WWE champion Jinder Mahal on Thursday night to hand out flyers about the protest.
