Episode notes

Based on the tragic real-life story of the wrestling family known professionally as the Von Erichs (liberties were taken, but most of them seem to have tamped the sheer tragedy down somewhat, rather than the other way around), The Iron Claw has been anxiously anticipated by some wrestling fans. Fans like our guest, Danielle Radford, who co-hosts Tights and Fights! After discussing the movie where actors played some real-life wrestlers, we dish about our favorite wrestlers-turned actors.
