Major League Wrestling (MLW) has signed third generation stars Marshall and Ross Von Erich to multi-year contracts. The news was first reported by Sports Illustrated.
Marshall and Ross are the sons of Kevin Von Erich and grandsons of the late family patriarch Fritz Von Erich. The duo has been honing their skills as a tag team around the world, competing in Israel, England, Australia, Texas and Oklahoma.
By signing with MLW, the Von Erichs are ready to make an impact on then national stage. They will debut for MLW on June 1st at Fury Road.
“Signing with MLW is a big deal for,” Ross told SI. “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.”
MLW CEO Court Bauer has been working on this deal since January. Bauer says the Von Erichs are determined to write a new chapter in the family’s legacy.
“It’s poetic,” said Bauer, who noted that the contract still allows Ross and Marshall the opportunity to work in Israel and for Pro Wrestling Noah in Japan. “They’re fighting for their family name and their future. They represent a new hope and a new chapter in the family’s fabled story.”
