Wrestlers are some of the most fearless athletes around, but this might be enough to scare any opponent off the mat: "Now wrestling for Palm Springs (Calif.) at 152 pounds … Lon Chaney ! …."

And, yes, he is the great-great-grandson of Lon Chaney, who starred as Frankenstein, and the great-grandson of Lon Chaney Jr., another horror movie legend.

"I just have to uphold the name, bring honor to the name," Chaney II told the Tucson Citizen. "I want to go to state (the step after Masters) and it's a possibility that this is my last year of wrestling, so I want to go out with a bang."
