    Wow. I’ve been yearning for a Von Erich biopic for a long time and this one looks like it may actually do their incredible story justice. There is virtually no other story in the history of wrestling like that of the Von Erichs. I always believed that their story was bigger than rasslin’. It was a real life Shakespearean tragedy that deserves to be told. I have fairly high hopes for this flick.
