The Iron Claw’ is a film about the rise and fall of the legendary Von Erich family, who made a huge impact on the sport of professional wrestling in the 1960s. The film is set to star Zac Efron, who will play Kevin Von Erich in the movie. Interestingly enough, Efron is open to working with the Von Erichs in AEW.

The first trailer for the film was released earlier this year and it showed Zac Efron looking absolutely jacked as he was running the ropes, among other things. Naturally, the film is expected to be an emotional roller coaster in a big way.

As previously reported, the cast members of the film wrestled full-length matches in order to add authenticity to the movie. Therefore, they genuinely have some pro wrestling experience now.

While speaking on The Ringer’s The Masked Man Show, Zac Efron and Jeremy Allen White were asked about potentially wrestling either in WWE or AEW. Both of them made it clear they don’t rule out wrestling in the future, especially Efron, who wants to work with The Von Erichs in AEW.

 “It’d be fun if we could get in there with some of the guys we worked with, with Chavo or even the Von Erichs coming back with AEW. I’d love to do something with them. If we had some time and prep and, especially if we were all out there together, that would be fun as hell. Who knows. Don’t count it out, that’s for sure.”

This film is scheduled to hit theaters on Friday, December 22, with future streaming availability on MAX. It remains to be seen whether it will end up being a critical and commercial success in the end.
