“Being a Von Erich comes with its difficulties; there’s a perception that you’re striving to surpass your family, but we’re simply playing the cards we’re dealt,” Marshall conveyed, acknowledging the substantial shadow cast by the Von Erich legacy. “Our aim is to make our father and family proud.”

“Wrestling has been a tough journey; it has a way of humbling you rapidly,” Ross asserted. “While people witness the high points in our careers, they may not see the less glamorous side, like scrubbing the dojo floors in Japan.” Ross conveyed that, despite the difficulties, both he and his brother persevered, overcoming moments of doubt about their commitment to wrestling.
