Old-school pro-wrestling fans finally get a serious biopic.
I am very excited to see "The Iron Claw." I was a fan of Fritz back in my youth and a couple of other wrestlers, Chief Wahoo McDaniel and Johnny Valentine. My brothers and i would always catch the weekend showing to see the latest shenanigans. Thanks for heads up on this one. I probably would have missed it otherwise.
I'd highly recommend Vice TV's Dark Side of the Ring episode, "The Last Von Erich" as a primer for The Iron Claw. Probably the best choice to launch a wrestling biopic.
I'll say Ric Flair, we're talking 80s heel Jim Crockett Promotions NWA Ric Flair. But honestly, I could talk on this subject for a long time.
