Zac Efron Got Beefed Up For The Wrestling Movie “The Iron Claw”

October 26, 2022 / Posted by:

It’s time for another iteration of Zac Efron‘s metamorphosis. After his jawline debut, which was apparently courtesy of a near-death fall, he shifted into Zac Lowe, and people wondered if his jaw had been touched by the delicate hands of a well-trained surgeon. But this new version is probably only touched by a personal trainer, lots of protein, and I would argue a testosterone cycle because Zac is BEEFED UP way beyond even his Baywatch shit. Enter: He-Zac and the Masters of Beefing Up

I guess 35-year-old Zac lied when he said he never wanted to get Baywatch-buff ever again, or maybe he meant that he would only go further? Because The Daily Mail is calling him “UNRECOGNIZABLE.” Zac is filming a new movie, The Iron Claw, in Louisiana. The film also stars Lily James, Jeremy Allen White, and Harris Dickinson, and is about a family of wrestlers, the Von Erichs, who date back to the 1960s.

The Von Erichs are the Jacksons of wrestling because even today, there are third-generation Von Erichs in professional wrestling. The first Von Erich, Fritz, started his career playing a Nazi, so Kanye West would’ve been a fan. Fritz and his wife Doris J. Smith had six sons, and most of them went into wrestling. Five of Fritz and Doris’ sons died tragically, mostly by suicides that all took place within eight years of each other. One son died from enteritis, and Fritz’s first-born son died by drowning in a puddle at age 6. This led to the idea of the “Von Erich Curse.”

Zac is playing the last surviving son of Fritz, Kevin Von Erich, and boy-oh-boy, does he look like a roided-out piece of wrestling beef. But that wig? Holy shit, tell me this isn’t He-Man. Here are the pics and some side-by-sides:

Beyond Zac’s action figure muscles, put this wig in the Hall of Fame of Demonic Wiggery. It looks as if Halle Berry‘s blunt bangs wig fell into a nuclear puddle. This wig looks crispy and dry, like an old piece of Popeyes chicken left out overnight. I guess they spent the wig budget on the beefing up of Zac Efron.
