"Ringside Wrestling: Heroes and Villans"
by T.S. Walsh and
published in 1985

"Pride" is the most common word in his family and in his home state of Texas, so Kerry Von Erich has more going for him than almost any ring master. Kerry has shown signs that he will fly even higher than his father, Fritz, and his brothers, Kevin and the late David (all legends in mat warfare). Fans knew that Kerry was special in 1984, when he triumphed over Ric Flair to win the NWA Heavyweight title. Flair managed to squeeze out a victory in a return match, but anyone who has seen Kerry's attack in the ring knows that he's the real thing.
