The Man Behind the Iron Claw

Author retells the life and times of legendary wrestler Fritz von Erich

Athens, Texas – WEBWIRE

“Fritz Von Erich: Master of the Iron Claw” is the story about the life and times of Jack Adkisson, also known as pro wrestling legend Fritz Von Erich, and the famous Von Erich wrestling dynasty. “Not since the Kennedys of Massachusetts has an American family publicly suffered personal tragedy after personal tragedy like the Von Erichs of Denton County, Texas.”

While the Kennedys have long been prominent in politics, the von Erichs were known for their athletic success. However, like the former, the latter also became notable because of the series of misfortunes in their family, as told in Ron G. Mullinax’s book, “FRITZ VON ERICH (Revised Edition): Master of the Iron Claw.”
Ron remembers that Jack Adkisson, known as Fritz von Erich, was once a standout football player in Southern Modernist University, until he met Stu Hart, which changed his life forever. This led the first von Erich to create World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), which attracted several television markets at one point. The famous downfall before the rise was the sudden death of his seven-year-old son from an accidental electrocution. Even with a booming career, tragedy struck the family, until his death in 1997.
 “Very surprising, because despite the colorful and international reputation of Fritz … he had never disclosed his personal life,” one review reads on Amazon. “FRITZ VON ERICH” gives readers a true, straightforward, and inspiring retelling of the legend.
