    What's messed up about Owen's death was that it could have been avoided if he didn't do that dumbass entrance.



    I didn't know Junkyard Dog was dead.

    Yeah, he died in a car accident I believe. They had his daughter induct him into the Hall of Fame around Wrestlemania XX (2004).

    I'm sure you didn't mean it to sound that way, but it's not like Owen chose to do the stunt on his own. WWE stuck him w/ the Blue Blazer gimmick and gave him the crazy entrance.

    I know he didn't choose his gimmick, but it's a death that shouldn't have happened.

    Every Von Erich except Kevin are gone...I'd be lying if I say I didn't laugh at that at least once or twice...I know death is no joke, but still...that's one fucked up family.
