I have been meaning to tell this for a while but just have not had the chance.

 A few months after Kerry Von Erich killed him self Bob Orton Sr. ( Randy's Grandfather) and his wife came to visit us from Vegas. While he was in town he wanted to go see Fritz. So me my brother  my dad and Bob went out to Fritz's ranch.  This would be the first time my dad and Fritz had spoken since Davids death.  We are there and the visit is going well till Fritz and Bob started arguing about something I was only about 10 or 11 I can't remember what.  Fritz got so mad he told Orton   "wait right here you SOB I'm going to get my gun"   I remind you Kerry had recently killed himself. Orton said in his old raspy voice  "is it the same fucking gun you killed your kid with?"  My dad told me and my brother go get in the car and we left.

Not really.  My dad never worked for Stu Hart.  I have met Bret and Owen they were both very nice.  I just read Bret's book though, it's one of the better wrestling books out there.

I can assure you that is not what caused the territory to go down.   That was caused by the WWF.  None of the other promotions could compete with Vince and his money and his television deal.  Fritz(WCCW) , Vern Gagne(AWA),  even tried pulling their promotions together for big PPV events called Super Clash to compete but could not.  Vince was also taking both organizations talent. From AWA he took The Rockers Hulk Hogan, Mr. Perfect ect. and from WCCW he took guys like The Free Birds. Thats what happend to the promotion they simply could not compete. Plus all the Von Erich boys were dying and the were the big stars of World Class.   
   As for  throwing the flowers out the window it would not surprise me.  The Trinity River is right there so I'm sure that probably happend .  No Kayfabe.

VON ERICHS ,were all the main draw of world class,built around kerry,when he became texas tornado and wwf ,wrestling fans probably heard of him but he was not 100 pct accepted ,great build tho.same for lex luger aka the narcissist good character but luger of course a fictional name in itself was not a character based wrestler or gimmick his body was his selling point to sucess,they figured a pampered nickname narcissist was good name ,but to me vince likes to 'gay'up wrestlers like adrian adonis,the model rick martel,golddust .

Another funny story about Fritz the last time we saw him me my old man Terry Funk and a Japanese reporter all went out to Fritz's house for the day.  We ended up at some whata burger and my dad Terry and Fritz were all arguing over who was gonna pay the bill.  Some how Fritz won and paid.   Later I think we some how found out that Fritz owned the Whataburger or some shit.
   I have pics from that day I will try to find them.
