Wrestling is a family business. The Von Erichs, the Harts, the McMahons. They're just a few of the famous families of the squared circle. And from time to time, some families have welcomed new members, but they weren't blood related. This post looks at some of my favorites.
|Rick Rude vs. Lance Von Erich|
Lance, Kevin and Kerry enjoyed some success as 6 man tag team champions. He also had a stint as the TV champ in WCCW. Eventually, he and the Dingo Warrior (now Ultimate Warrior) held the tag team titles. I remember him challenging Rick Rude for the heavyweight title, but coming up short after some devious actions by Percy Pringle. Lance eventually left the company because of a falling out with Uncle Fritz. And while he kept the Von Erich moniker for a while, Fritz blasted Lance saying he wasn't related to his famous clan.
