Major League Wrestling has been on television for over a year now. They have made their mark on the television scene by signing very young, and very talented wrestlers. From MJF to Myron Reed to Salina De La Renta. They also recreated the Hart Foundation with Brian Pillman Jr., Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Teddy Hart
Needless to say, young, generational talent are a big part of the MLW roster. You can add two more multi-generational wrestlers to the roster now.
Coming off the heels of the tragic Von Erich Viceland documentary “Dark Side Of The Ring”, which featured clips of the sons of Kevin Von Erich, MLW has announced via Sports Illustrated that they have signed Marshall and Ross Von Erich.
“Signing with MLW is a big deal for us,” said Ross. “They are the promotion that has allowed us to be with our dad, help out around the ranch, and still wrestle.”
“We’re able to continue the legacy,” added Marshall. “It’s humbling, we’re honored, and it’s the perfect timing—we’ve never been this ready for this big a stage before.”
“The Von Erich name is not a burden,” said Ross, who is the elder brother at 30. “We are grateful for our name, it’s a blessing to be a Von Erich. God gave us the right equipment, and we’re going to go out there and do our best.”The Von Erich Brothers via Sports Illustrated
The two passed up a WWE tryout, instead signing with MLW, primarily because the opportunity with MLW allows the chance to be home far more often.
“WWE encouraged us to come to Florida and try out, and are extremely grateful for the offer, but we want to be as close to our dad as possible,” said Marshall, 26. “For us, MLW is the right home.”
