Mickey Grant - who put WCCW on TV
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.
