• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 10, 1984) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1984, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend David Von Erich (Real name: David Adkisson) at the young age of 25 due to acute enteritis.
He was the son of legendary wrestler & promoter Fritz Von Erich and the brother of fellow pro wrestlers Kevin Von Erich, “The Texas Tornado” Kerry von Erich, Mike Von Erich & Chris Von Erich. They all wrestled for Fritz’s Dallas, Texas based promotion, World Class Championship Wrestling.
David was considered the most talented Von Erich, which is why there were already plans to have him defeat “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair for the NWA Heavyweight Championship, but he passed away before they had a chance to book that.
In 2009, he and all of the family members mentioned above, were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by their former rival and close personal friend, Michael “P.S.” Hayes
† REST IN PEACE DAVID VON ERICH
July 22, 1958 – February 10, 1984
• Next Legendary Guest On Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions Revealed
Old School WWF Legend The Big Show will be the next guest on WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions.
This episode will air on February 23 on the WWE Network.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin interviews Big Show on next episode of The Broken Skull Sessions
“Wellllll … well, it’s the Big Show!
The World’s Largest Athlete is the next guest to join award-winning interviewer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin on the set of his WWE Network original series, The Broken Skull Sessions. The episode will premiere Sunday, Feb. 23, at 8 p.m. ET, exclusively on WWE Network.
As one of the longest-tenured Superstars in history, Big Show can provide era-spanning insight that few others can match, making the episode can’t-miss programming. The fact that his sit-down with Austin is taking place almost 21 years to the day that Big Show made his monstrous WWE debut — where, coincidentally, he attacked The Texas Rattlesnake — is just the icing on the cake.
Don’t miss the next installment of The Broken Skull Sessions when it streams on Feb. 23, and until then, you can catch up on past episodes featuring The Undertaker, Goldberg and Kane, exclusively on WWE Network.”
… WELL, IT'S @WWETheBigShow!! ?
