Guide Review - Heroes of World Class - The Story of the Von Erichs & WCCW
This DVD spends a great time explaining what made WCCW so special, both inside the ring and outside of it. Unfortunately, the saga of WCCW is one of the saddest in wrestling history. The story of WCCW is directly tied to the story of the Von Erich family. At one time, David, Kevin, & Kerry Von Erich were the biggest stars in the business. The family encountered many tragedies that saw Kevin as the only remaining brother out of the six sons of Fritz Von Erich. The Von Erich's were not the only wrestlers to suffer untimely deaths. Three of the top stars in WCCW were murdered and none of their murderers ever spent a day in jail.
The DVD ends with Kevin Von Erich touring the damaged Sportatorium in a scene that brings some closure to the sad ending of WCCW. While there is tremendous sadness in this story, it is also a celebration of a great time in wrestling history.
