Episode 44 - The Von Erich Curse

The curse has struck again!!!! This week, Chris drops a special "curse edition" of History Creeps, welcoming Tate Suplex (pronounced sue-play) of The Dusty Finish podcast. Together, they take a look at the tragic story of pro wrestling's legendary Von Erich family. A product of patriarch Fritz Von Erich, World Class Championship Wrestling helped launch many careers and shape the face of pro wrestling during the 70s and 80s. The stars of his show were his sons, Kevin, David, Mike, Kerry and Chris. By the time the promotion shut down production in 1990, four of the five Von Erich boys would be dead, leading many to speculate: Was the family cursed? Check out this episode of History Creeps and decide for yourself.
