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 Kennedy family became famous worldwide for their political accomplishments and the tragedies of their sons, the Von Erich family became famous worldwide for their athletic accomplishments and the tragedies in their family.
Read how Fritz Von Erich and his five sons impacted the wrestling world with their family’s show World Class Championship Wrestling, which at one time was syndicated in 66 U.S. television markets, Japan, Argentina, and the Middle East. The story, as told to Ron Mullinax by Jack Adkisson himself, follows his wrestling career and family tragedies beginning in the 1950s and continuing until his death in 1997.

About the Author
One of the Major Influences in my life and the motivation behind my writing was a very interesting person by the name of Jack Adkisson, aka, Fritz Von Erich (The Master of the Iron Claw). Fritz was a Professional Wrestler and my childhood hero. Later in my life I would not only meet my childhood hero, but would be by his side and hold his hand as he passed from this world. Before Jack Adkisson passed away he related to me his life story and family tragedies, and made me promise that I would write his story in his own words so all the Von Erich fans around the world could hear this amazing but sad life story from "Fritz Von Erich" himself.
