Move type: Submission
The Von Erichs are another one of wrestling’s royal families. Patriarch Fritz taught his six sons everything he knew, and although five of them died tragic, early deaths, their place in wrestling history is assured. Their most famous, family trademark was the Iron Claw, where the Von Erich boys would use their massive hands to crush the skulls of their opponents. Kevin Von Erich still performs the Claw when he makes cameos at wrestling shows, and it kicks every middle-aged wrestling fan directly in the feels.
