    Calling Chris Von Erich a hall of famer delutes the hall of fame

  2. Josh Dionio says:

    Chris was inducted with the rest of the Von Erich clan so for you to put down one is to put down all of them, Steven. Yes, Chris died young, but most of those guys did. Sad that people feel the need to disrespect any member of a family with such tragedy.

    Fritz deserves it. David shouldve had a hall of fame career if it wasnt for the monkey on his back. Kerry was good, but blew it. Kevin never made it out of texas. Mike was pushed to the moon, but couldnt cut it. Chris had 6 matches in his career. 4 of them were against Percy Pringle.

    Btw I loved the Von Erichs in the 80’s especially David and Kerry.
