Nearly ten years ago, Marshall and Ross Von Erich, sons of WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Von Erich, made their national television debut at TNA Slammaversary XII. Following a more than a year-long run with the precursor to Impact, the brothers set off to wrestle around the world before returning to the States in 2019 and signing with Major League Wrestling.
MLW is where many pro wrestling fans have really gotten to know the two legacy talents. The duo quickly won the company’s tag team titles within six months of signing, dethroning The Dynasty, comprised of current AEW World Champion MJF, and Richard Holliday, who just returned to action after beating cancer. The two held the MLW Tag Team Championships for 438 days, the longest tag team title reign in the history of the promotion.
During their time with the company, they continued to feud with The Dynasty and also tangled with the nefarious CONTRA stable. While at odds with CONTRA, they pulled their famous father into the mix, having him second them to the ring in a War Chamber match against the faction.
In an exclusive Haus of Wrestling interview, Kevin talked about his sons’ current contract status, and what he thought of The Von Erichs’ time in MLW.
“The contract they had with MLW is up June 1,” he noted, which happened to be the day the interview was recorded. “Nothing bad to say about MLW. They are a wrestling operation that was a fusion, they have the Lucha Libre style from Mexico, and they had all the wild stuff. I never would do barbed wire, or broken glass in the ring, come on. That’s not the sport that my Dad taught me, you know? Wrestling in the ring with busted glass and stuff like that.”
With Marshall and Ross now free agents, a possible leap to WWE, AEW, or NJPW could be in the cards. As confirmed to Kevin by us in our conversation, the family will be relocating to Texas shortly so they can more easily work in the States. The family will retain their home in Hawaii, and visit it occasionally.
