The new generation. There are a lot of wrestlers throughout the world today and some of them are the children of previous wrestlers. In a way, these wrestlers have a leg up on others as they have grown up around someone in the industry and have probably been given some insight on how things work. It can be fascinating to see how they do as a result and that seems to be the case again.

Arianna Grace made her debut on NXT this week, appearing in a vignette announcing her entry into the first ever women’s Breakout Tournament. Grace is formerly known as Bianca Carelli and is the daughter of former WWE star Santino Marella. She has previously wrestled for the NWA and signed with WWE earlier this year. There is no word on if Santino will be appearing in WWE with Grace.

Welcome to the team. Check out Graces’s debut:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can make for some very interesting moments as you do not know how well a second generation star is going to do. There have been quite a few successes over the years and maybe that is the case again with Grace. If nothing else, it is certainly worth a look as you might get to see the next big thing in wrestling with what feels like a simple signing.

What do you think of the signing? Who is your favorite second generation star? Let us know in the comments below.
