Major League Wrestling today announced Ross Von Erich as a participant in the 40-wrestler Battle Riot as MLW returns to New York City’s Melrose Ballroom on June 23, featuring an MLW Fusion TV taping.
🎟Limited tickets are available at www.MLWNYC.com and on Eventbrite.
The elder brother of the former world championship Von Erich tag team, Ross is the grounded, strategist, always gaming out scenarios for each and every fight. But how does the newest entrant map out a fight strategy with so many variables in the 40-wrestler extravaganza?
Ever the calculated and cerebral grappler, Ross “Shogun” Von Erich is training alongside his brother in Hawaii under the tutelage of their father, Kevin Von Erich, as the “Sons of Thunder” look to rock 38 other participants and embrace their “Von Erichs vs. everyone” wild, southern brawling mentality.
What happens if it comes down to Ross and his brother Marshall? It could happen! This is the most unpredictable match in the sport!
