Slam! Wrestling’s Greg Oliver spoke with Waldo Von Erich’s daughter Mary Jane Berry, in the wake of his death. Von Erich was admited to the hospital yesterday, and both Oliver and Berry were taken off guard by his passing.
PWI’s Mike Johnson gives a brief summary of Von Erich’s career, from being billed as Fritz Von Erich’s brother (he wasn’t; his real name was Walter Sieber) to challenging Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF Championship. After his in ring career ended, Von Erich became a trainer; TNA’s Eric Young was one his students.
Pulse Wrestling offers its condolences to Von Erich’s family.
