TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… JUNE 4TH: The Modern Day Warrior’s Motorcycle Accident



Kerry Von Erich, with the WCCW Texas title

Kerry Von Erich crashes his motorcycle into the back of a police car, suffering a dislocated hip and a severely damaged right foot that would eventually have to be amputated.


Von Erich would go on to wrestle with a prosthetic foot, a fact that he and his family tried to keep private. Despite this, he would eventually make his way to the WWF, and capture the company’s coveted Intercontinental title.

Von Erich tragically committed suicide on February 18, 1993.

He was just 33.
