• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 10, 1997) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1997, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Fritz Von Erich (Real name: Jack Adkisson) at the age of 68 due to brain cancer and lung cancer.
Fritz von Erich was promoter of the famous Texas based World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) territory and the father of fellow Professional Wrestlers Kevin Von Erich, “The Texas Tornado” Kerry Von Erich, David Von Erich, Mike Von Erich & Chris Von Erich.
Only Kevin is still alive today.
In 2009, Fritz and all of his above mentioned sons were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Michael “P.S.” Hayes, a long-time friend of the family.
† REST IN PEACE FRITZ VON ERICH
August 16, 1929 – September 10, 1997
• Bray Wyatt Possibly Signalled A Feud With The Undertaker On RAW
On this week’s episode of RAW from MSG, another episode of Firefly Fun House with Bray Wyatt aired.
Due to Stone Cold Steve Austin’s appearance on the show, a clock in the Firefly Fun House got stuck at 3:16.
Wyatt then fixed the clock by hitting it with a hammer and the new time that the clock showed was 11:19.
Fans came up with some interesting theories with this new time and one of the theory is that this time was an indication that The Fiend will be going after the The Undertaker.
While WWE recognizes The Undertaker’s official debut on November 22, 1990 (11/22) at the Survivor Series 1990 PPV, The Deadman actually made his first ever WWF appearance on November 19, 1990 (11/19) at a WWF Superstars Of Wrestling TV taping.
This is very interesting as we have noted before that WWE is indeed planning a feud between The Fiend and The Undertaker and that The Fiend could be Taker’s final WrestleMania opponent (tap here to know more).
We’ll probably get to know more about this tonight when The Undertaker returns on SmackDown.
