Place in History - The eldest of the Von Erich boys, one can only imagine the tortured life Kevin Von Erich has lived as the sole survivor of the family. One could argue which of the Von Erichs was the biggest and best, but he certainly has a claim to that spot. While David was the first to taste success and may have very well been an NWA Champion, it was Kerry who was the heartthrob and pushed the strongest. Kevin was not surprisingly upset by being pushed to the back, especially since he was the most dynamic and some would argue much better than his brothers. After the glory days of World Class, Kevin kicked around the Texas indies, before retiring. While he never achieved the fame he may have deserved at least he survived and is not just another wrestling casuality.
