‘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 has a lot of positives and during a recent screening in Brazil, an impromptu wrestling match broke out.

‘The Iron Claw’ ended up getting solid reviews from fans and critics alike, but it suffered a major snub at the Oscars last month, as the film didn’t get single Oscar nomination.

As seen by footage making rounds online, an impromptu wrestling match took place during a screening of ‘The Iron Claw’ in Brazil. The audience in attendance cheered on as the pro wrestlers took part in a match and had a lot of fun in the process.

Despite many in the wrestling fan base being initially unaware of the rich legacy paved by the Von Erich family, this film has immortalized it for generations to come, ensuring that the story will be known and appreciated by a wider audience.
