Is The Iron Claw based on a true story?

During the 1960s, Fritz gained a following for competing in World Class Champion Wrestling.

The three-time world champion opened the door for his sons to follow in his footsteps.

Kevin, David, Kerry, Mike, and Chris became wrestlers as well.

The latter three wrestlers took their own lives and David Von Erich died from Acute Enteritis, which leaves Kevin as the last surviving of his brothers.

Kevin and his father Fritz are associated with popularizing “the iron claw” wrestling move.
