About this Episode

Commentator Joe Dombrowski (MLW, AAA) joins us to talk about his latest project “Von Erich Dynasty: Masters Of The Iron Claw” available at www.ProWrestlingLibrary.com!

We discussed the "Iron Claw" movie, its accuracy, attention to detail, and how it focused on the Von Erich family story rather than just wrestling.

We talked about Chris Von Erich, the youngest brother who took his own life, and how he was not included in the "Iron Claw" film.

Joe Dombrowski digs into his video anthology project compiling rare Von Erich footage from various wrestling libraries/archives. It contains many uncovered gems and is intended to highlight the successes and accomplishments of the Von Erichs, not just their tragedies.

We discuss early footage of talent like Steve Austin, Taz, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Harley Race and more interacting with or facing the Von Erichs.

What other rare footage and surprises were uncovered, like Kerry teaming with Jeff Jarrett, a Von Erich hotline fans could call, and Great Muta before his famous NWA run facing Kevin Von Erich.
