    This is the story of filmmaker Brian Harrison's childhood heroes: The Von Erich Brothers. It tells of the small Dallas promotion run by Fritz Von Erich in the 1980's that became the innovator of professional wrestling's worldwide exposure via television syndication.

    With his three oldest sons as the franchise stars, WCCW was one of the most syndicated shows in the world, until a string of shocking tragedies drove the family and the promotion down a path no one could have imagined.  Today one Von Erich, Kevin, remains, his four younger brothers among the stars who found a tragic end in the downfall of World Class.

    HEROES OF WORLD CLASS is a story of surviving unspeakable tragedy and a tribute to an unforgettable era.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Better than the WWE dvd., 6.19.2014
    Reviewer: Eddie Baggett (Jefferson, AR)

    Watching an independent documentary on World Class Championship Wrestling. And it nearly brings tears to my eyes. They hit the emotional beats better then the WWE dvd. This was filmed days before the Sportatorium was torn down. And they followed Kevin Von Erich as he was doing a final walk through the place. Most of the place didnt have lights so he had to use a flashlight and the camera light. You just have to see that part to believe it. But a few wrestlers allude to the fact that all the heartache and everything lives on Kevin, being the only living person from that family

    Reviewer: Randy Ocean (Hesperia, CA)

    One of the best documentaries on wrestling I have ever seen. Truly a great buy for any fan of WCCW or any fan of the Von Erichs. Kevin Von Erich is brutally honest with every aspect of his life. The ending is great with a look at the Sportatorium right before it was tore down and Kevin Von Erich giving a tour of the building. Great way to end the story of one of the best times pro wrestling has ever seen.
