While Marshall is wrestling barefoot similar to other Von Erichs, Ross has opted to do the opposite. According to Ross, "I don't really like being compared to my family too much. I'm just going through doors as they open. If it ends up not working out, something else will work out, just like it always does."
According to their father, Kevin Von Erich, "You can't stay gun-shy and avoid contact or avoid disaster to the point of living your life any different. We pull out all the stops and give it our best shot." Kevin has allowed his sons to go into the wrestling business despite the tragic and heartbreaking past of their family.
