* SHINE Wrestling Trio Made In Sin (Allysin Kay, Taylor Made and April Hunter) are a mix between spiritual successor and {{alternate company equivalent}} to the second incarnation of The Midwest Militia as seen in Wrestling/{{WSU}} and Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} (Allysin Kay, Sassy Stephie and Mademoiselle Rachelle-the fallout between Allysin Kay and Jessicka Havok happened elsewhere). Made In Sin later joined together with Radiant Rain and Wrestling/IvelisseVelez to form Valkyrie, a spiritual successor to Rain's Army whom the original Midwest Militia split off from (thanks to Jessicka Havok, whom they [[BestServedCold unsurprisingly]] targeted before long). After Rain's retirement and Velez's expulsion forced Valkyrie to reorganize, [=SoCal=] Val, recognizing a winning formula when she saw it, started a group called Valifornia, an {{expy}} of the original Valkyrie, [[GenreSavvy minus an Ivelisse analog]]. Velez for her part, started her own Valkyrie like group, Las Sicarias, partially for protection from what was left of the original only to see Val's group [[VillainTeamUp merge with that enemy]] to create [[SerialEscalation the most powerful]] version of Valkyrie yet, threatening [[NearVillainVictory to swallow everything]]. The GoodCounerpart, Las Sicarias, [[EarnYourHappyEnding did win in the end]], only to be beaten down [[YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle by yet another Valkyrie like group]] called C4, whom [=LuFisto=] had brought together almost out of the blue.

* Shayna Baszler clearly stated she approached Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} Champion Wrestling/MercedesMartinez and Heart Of SHIMMER Nicole Savoy for the purpose of forming The Trifecta because that's what she did in mixed martial arts with Ronda Rousey, Marina Shafir Jessamyn Duke to form The Four Horsewomen. Considering the first two pro wrestlers Baszler supposedly approached were Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly, who not only became reDRagon but were assisted by Baszler in retaining the Wrestling/RingOfHonor TagTeam Titles there might be more entries in the series than she's letting on...

* [[Wrestling/{{FMW}} Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling]] got three unofficial successors. Wrestling/{{ECW}} in the U.S, Big Japan Pro Wrestling and Xtrem Mexican Wrestling. Officially, World Entertainment Wrestling, Wrestling Marvelous Future, USO and Onita Pro, which all launched to fill the void left by FMW and employ its roster. These four companies then joined together to form The Apache Army, until FMW's revival.

* Wrestling/{{ECW}} was so great it needed two promotions to fill the void it left. Wrestling/RingOfHonor is the successor to the technical wrestling and [[Wrestling/{{CZW}} Combat Zone Wrestling]] is the successor to hardcore wrestling. Both promotions run most of their shows in ECW's home venues such as The Arena in Philadelphia and The Manhattan Center in New York. However, they didn't belong to the [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance NWA]] and out of these two, only ROH enjoyed any lasting television deals.

* [[{{Camp}} Tongue in cheek]] all women's promotion Wrestling/{{GLOW}} spawned a number of spiritual successors, such as POWW, the LPWA, CRUSH, Women Of Wrestling and Wrestling/{{Wrestlicious}}. Despite their names and premises, Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} and SHINE are ''not'' examples, instead being recurring showcases of the best and the future of the business. The names are slightly coincidental but GLOW is [[FunWithAcronyms an acronym]], the latter two's are SWA and [[ShortTitles SW]].
* SHIMMER is more so the spiritual successor to IWA Mid-South's ''Volcano Girls'' tournaments, another project in Ian Rotten's quest to show his promotion was not just for {{garbage wrestler}}s and an early step in Dave Prazak's to cater to wrestling fans who wanted to see more from the women involved in the sport. It also featured several wrestlers who would later be in SHIMMER, co founder Allison Danger not the least of them.
* A humorous case happened in the 2000s to early 2010s when the NWA launched a spiritual successor to CWF Florida called Championship Wrestling from Hollywood(in Hollywood California, the older one operated in Hollywood FL) and The WWE launched a {{revival}} of Florida Championship Wrestling. [[DontExplainTheJoke For those who don't get it]], they both ran revivals\successors of the same company at once. CWF had been erroneously called FCW for years and was forced to temporarily change its name to FCW in 1988 when Mike Graham wanted to return to promoting but found someone else had the CWF rights. The NWA would require these CWF rights in 2003, so WWE once again fell back on the FCW designation.

* The Wrestling/NewWorldOrder angle in Wrestling/{{WCW}} was preceded by an {{executive veto}} to a Wrestling/SmokeyMountainWrestling invasion. WCW's farm league, The Heartland Wrestling Association, was also preceded with by a WCW-Smokey Mountain talent exchange, Heartland starting in 1996, one year after Smokey Mountain Closed down.

* Nanae Takahashi's World Wonder Ring STARDOM's is a spiritual successor to Wrestling/AllJapanWomensProWrestling, it's two top singles titles being deliberately molded after the WWWA titles that Zenjo held in highest esteem.

** As TNA was a splinter from the NWA and a successor to WCW, Wrestling/{{Fo|rtune}}urtune was to be a successor to the Four Horsemen, which was prominently featured in both promotions. Problem being, Fourtune had six members.
