Other than Vince McMahon vs Shane McMahon have there been any other fathers who feuded with their sons and had a high profile match?

Jerry Lawler and Brian Christopher immediately comes to mind. Also Ric and David Flair. I’m sure I’ll think of others.

Maybe Scott McGhee vs. Geoff Portz.

Missing Link vs. Jason Sterling?

Bobby Managoff's father was one of the Terrible Turks, I believe... that match up is a possibility.

Did Eddie or Doug ever fight Tommy Gilbert?
How about Carlos Colon against one of his nineteen kids?
Paul Boesch vs Gino Hernandez?
Any versions of the Guerrero’s? Chavo vs Chavo Classic?

Juventud Guerrera and His father faced off in a bunch of singles and tag matches in 2007 and 2008 including a street fight at Triplemania 15.

Geoff Portz wrestled Scott McGhee on a few occasions for Crockett. They were opening matches, though, and not part of any feud. Also, they were never acknowledged as father and son.

The closest Dory Sr came to facing one of his sons was when he and Dory Jr were the final two in a battle royal in Amarillo. Jr eliminated himseld to allow his father to face Lou Thesz for the world title. [Trivia: This was the symbolic end of the Amarillo world title, and this replaced the initial build to a unification match between Thesz and Jr. Amarillo briefly recognized their own world championship because Dory Sr refused to do business with Buddy Rogers. When Thesz regained the title, Amarillo briefly recognized three legitimate claims to the world heavyweight title (the AWA title being the third.) Funk Sr. was persuaded to only recognize the NWA title, and the Amarillo version was quietly forgotten about and the unification bout was never mentioned again.]

Angelo Poffo as the masked Miser faced Lanny Poffo several times in ICW in 1979.

Also in ICW, ancient Cora Combs wore a mask as Lady Satan and wrestled her daughter, Debbie. I think they took this match to quite a few outlaw territories in the late 70s and early 80s.

Paige has teamed with her father and faced a team of her mother and her brother.

In Terry's rookie year (1966) the Funk brothers faced each other in two tag team matches. Both were three fall affairs, and included falls where one brother pinned the other. The local fans didn't want to see the Funks fight each other, and they never faced each other again.

I saw their AJPW match (assuming I was the only one). I think it was a 60-minute draw where there were 2 bumps in the whole match (both by Terry) and they just rolled around on the map the whole time. Maybe the boringest match ever.

Even more boring then a Lew Thesz match?

Did Stu Hart ever face one of his kids? If he did, did he stretch him?

In modern times, Garrett Bischoff had a feud with daddy Eric Bischoff, over in TNA in 2012. I think their only face-to-face in-ring meeting was in a multi-person tag match where Garrett pinned Eric.


In kayfabe: sadly, The Giant/Big Show never got to face Andre. Nor did Lance Von Erich ever get to face Waldo.
