Kevin Von Erich Reveals Why He Wrestled Barefoot During His Career



On a recent edition of the “Talk is Jericho” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Von Erich explained why he wrestled barefoot for the majority of his career.

Kevin said, “Well, there are a lot of stories out there, but the truth is I had so many knee surgeries before I even started wrestling, in football. The leather boots, they get heavy and I took ’em off one time — Kerry used to do it too, and we loved it because you feel like you can fly taking that weight off your feet.”

Kevin’s sons, Marshall and Ross, also discussed their wardrobe choices.

Ross wears boots but Marshall wrestles bare feet.

Marshall said, Now I can’t wrestle with shoes on! It’s a shoot, we’ve always been barefoot our whole lives. We have nasty feet because they look like hooves. We’ve been walking around barefoot everywhere, it’s just natural.”

Kevin Von Erich’s life and career are documented in the new biopic, The Iron Claw, which is currently playing in theaters nationwide. Kevin Von Erich is portrayed by Zac Efron in the movie.
