Curtain Jerkers, Episode 22: IRON CLAW, The Von Erich Story, and WCCW

Before we dive into the episode, have you seen our badass logo? Awesome designer Trais Colton Barhaug rocked that for us and you should go support him now! T-shirts, pins, and stickers are on their way.

Thanks to Justin’s long time friend, Kwalified, a diehard wrestling fan and dope emcee hailing from Hawaii, for our great intro song.


The lost November episode is goin to finally make its tardy appearance in February, but we needed to make a point to check out Iron Claw this month and dive into the tragic Von Erich story. So we veer from focus on a wrestler turned actor this month and focus on film and the real life subjects of the film (though our original plan was this film and an episode about MJF, but his part was too minimal and the Von Erichs deserve the coverage).

So we look at a few of the great WCCW Von Erichs matches alongside discussion of the fantastic A24 film.
