One of the five von Erich brothers of the prominent wrestling family.
After playing football at North Texas State, he began performing in his father's World Class Championship Wrestling promotion.
Becoming one of the WCCW's biggest stars, he had feuds with stars like Chris Adams that resulted in actual violence.
Tragically, he became the last surviving member of the Von Erich wrestling family.
His brother Kerry von Erich was a WWE Hall of Fame inductee.
