In recent weeks and past months with Manu gone, we have looked towards a new member joining Legacy. Many people have looked toward DH Smith, however with him being placed on the ECW roster, it isn't as likely as it once was. With that said, I would like to present to you some other possible candidates.
Before I continue this I would like to correct an error made by many people. Ted DiBiase Jr. is not, and I repeat is NOT, a second-generation Wrestler. He is a third Generation wrester. Both his step-grandfather "Iron" Mike Dibiase and real grandmother were professional wrestlers.
1) "Iron" Mike DiBiase II
This is another possible pick only because it would be easy for him to get a contract with WWE because two of his brothers are already there.
Mike DiBiase is named in honor of his step-grandfather and if you haven't already figured it out is Ted DiBiase's brother.
Mike has showed even more talent than his younger brother Ted. He has competed in PWF and WLW. He has won several Titles on the Indy circuit most recently winning the NWA Texas Heavyweight Championship.
2) Brett DiBiase
He is currently in possession of a WWE contract and is competing in FCW. To be honest, I don't know as much about Brett as I do Ted and Mike. I have heard a lot of praise of his in ring work and wrestling ability; however, I have never seen him compete for myself so I am only adding him due to his fairly decent chance of being put in the stable.
He is the son of a wrestling legend and Hall of Famer. He is the son of the late great "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig. He is also the grandson of wrestling legend Larry "The Ax" Hennig. This makes Joe a third- generation wrestler.
Joe, like DH Smith, has the distinct advantage of a WWE contract. He is currently wrestling in the developmental ground and has won their heavyweight title, however it was announced he had to vacate it due to injury.
He held the tag title with Developmental wrestler Sebastian Slater. He uses a finisher similar to his father's Perfect-Plex, a maneuver he has dubbed the Hennig-Plex.
4) Reid Flair
A few of us know of his brother David and many of us know of his father, Wooooooooooo, "the Nature Boy" Ric Flair.
Reid has recently joined the wrestling scene. He wrestled amateur in high school and had two appearances on WCW when he was young (like 10) where he beat Eric Bischoff in a humiliating display.
But Reid has recently been wrestling on the indy circuit in a much more interesting display.
He recently tagged with his brother David, who at this point is semi-retired, defeating popular early 90's team the Nasty Boys and it has been announced he was award the NWA Mid Atlantic Heritage championship.
Reid might be getting a WWE contract soon, considering the fact that his father is still on good terms with the company. He is, of course, using the figure four leglock.
5) Ricky Steamboat Jr.
Last I had heard, he was training under Harley Race after making a pro wrestling debut in mid-2008. He could easily get a contract with WWE considering the fact his father is involved in a storyline.
In fact, this storyline may be a good way to introduce him to the fans; however, as far as I know he isn't done training yet and it is unlikely he will finish before the storyline runs its course.
6) Teddy Hart
He has came and went with the WWE twice and was released for his attitude. Teddy is still young and it is possible we will see him in the WWE again. However whether he will be used for the Hart Foundation 2.0 or Legacy is based on how soon he is signed again.
I could probably go on forever with this list, but I just wanted to give everyone a pretty basic overview of potential Legacy members and to show that DH Smith wasn't our only hope for a new member of Legacy.
I tried to put names on this list that are either already within the company or they have relatives that are well known which is why a few are left out.
I know I didn't go into a lot of detail as I normally like to do but to be honest most of these guys have just started wrestling, so there is not much to put.
As for who I would like to see in Legacy the most, Joe Hennig, the next Mr. Perfect.
