The Iron Claw film is getting a lot of buzz already, despite the fact that actors could not promote the film due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA Strike. The Von Erich Family’s story is one that pro wrestling fans know very well, and they are all hoping for a true, and emotional story on the silver screen.


The Von Erich Family is a legendary wrestling dynasty that has left an indelible mark on the world of professional wrestling. The story of the Von Erichs is a tale of triumph and tragedy, marked by remarkable athletic achievements and heartbreaking personal losses.

Founded by Fritz Von Erich the family’s wrestling legacy began to take shape in the 1950s. Fritz was a formidable wrestler in his own right and became a prominent figure in the Texas wrestling scene. He trained his sons, including Kevin, David, Kerry, Mike, and Chris, in the art of professional wrestling; all of which are represented in the Iron Claw film.

The Von Erich brothers went on to become major stars in World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), captivating audiences with their charisma, athleticism, and wholesome image. Their story is a captivating one, but it is also quite tragic.

The Von Erich Family is also marred by a series of devastating losses. We will not spoil the story, but it could be a tear-jerker for many movie-goers.

You may check out the new poster below. It seems that A24 is going all-out to promote this film as they release it while Hollywood is in a tumultuous period of time.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
