The official premise of The Iron Claw:
'The film is centered around the Von Erich family, a dynasty of wrestlers from the 1960s onwards that had enormous success, and popularized the iron claw professional wrestling hold. However, they not only had to battle inside the ring, but fight the "Von Erich curse" outside of it'
The Von Erich family is one of the most famous families in the history of wrestling, but their dynasty has been overshadowed by what has been dubbed the 'Von Erich Curse' after various deaths and tragedies.
Efron plays Kevin Von Erich, while Jeremy Allen White plays his brother, Kerry.
Set photos were leaked of the movie which showed Efron and White in remarkable shape for the movie in order to capture the hulking physique of the Von Erich brothers.
When asked by Entertainment Weekly if they would consider appearing in WWE, they seemed excited.
"Oh, I would jump in," White replied.
"I would love to," Harris Dickinson agreed. "Do you remember at the end of the shoot? We were like, 'Should we try and do this for real?'"
"Yeah, call WWE!" Efron said. "Say we're going to do it!"
Efron and White at Wrestlemania?
