Legendary Wrestling Family Discuss Potentially Signing With WWE Or AEW WWE/AEW

Following appearances last year, Marshall Von Erich of the legendary Von Erich family has discussed potentially signing with WWE or AEW.

The story of the Von Erich family once again became a conversation in the wrestling world after the release of the critically acclaimed “The Iron Claw” film.

Marshall and Ross Von Erich are former MLW World Tag Team Champions and have made appearances for AEW and ROH. The duo also have previously appeared for TNA and other independent promotions as well.

Speaking on The Von Erichs Podcast, Marshall and Ross Von Erich were asked to comment on why they have not gone to WWE yet. Marshall replied:

“The reason we haven’t gone to a major company yet is, it’s definitely in the cards, but Ross and I, we had an opportunity to go to WWE, to do a tryout.”

“We both didn’t feel like it was time because once you go, you’re showing this is what we have to offer, this is the best of what we have to offer.”

“We didn’t feel like we were at our best yet. So why would we go when we don’t feel like we’re at the top or whatever?”

“So we wanted to give it some time, and that’s kind of what the move from Hawaii was. We were in Hawaii. We’ve picked family over wrestling.”

Reflecting on being at the WWE Hall of Fame, Marshall said:

“I’ll never forget, I was [at the] Hall of Fame, Michael Hayes was [getting inducted], and my dad was inducting. I was sitting there looking at all the wrestlers and everybody up front. I was like, this is what I wanted to do.”

“I was looking at it and all the guys were talking about how many marriages they had, and I’ve been married to the business, and I’ve done this, I’ve done that.”

“They almost bragged about how many failed marriages they had. I was sitting there looking at it, I was like, ‘Man. I don’t know if this is it.’”

“But what else is it? If I’m gonna wrestle, I want to get to the top of it, but this is the top. I don’t know if I want to be here.”

On choosing family over wrestling, Marshall stated:

“At the time, that’s where my head was at. I started having sons and stuff, and talking to Ross, we both felt like we’re getting polished enough where I could go anywhere and have a good wrestling match. I know what I’m doing now.”

“Before, the time they called us, we didn’t. So right now, we feel like we’re polished and ready. We could go wrestle anywhere. I feel like it’s coming, it’s coming soon.”

“So this is like the calm before the storm. We’ve been in conversations with both companies and stuff.”

“So we’re kind of just seeing where it goes, but it feels like the calm before a storm because I got a feeling it’s coming soon. I would love to talk on it more, but there’s some stuff I can’t really talk about yet,”

Marshall and Ross Von Erich last wrestled for All Elite Wrestling on the February 16 edition of AEW Rampage.
