The true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early ’80s. Going through tragedies and triumphs, always in the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers sought to become true legends on the sport’s biggest stage.
The Von Erich family of wrestlers had a long-lasting influence in the ring, visible to this day. Led by the patriarch of the family, fighter Fritz Von Erich, five of his six sons followed in his footsteps and became fighters, but fame and success led to the death of four of them. Their life outside the ring has become just as famous as their professional life, and the film will focus on what many have dubbed “The Von Erich Curse.”
