Marshall Von Erich Remembers Fritz Von Erich, Taichi To Defend KOPW 2023 Title Against Kanemaru



On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Marshall Von Erich discussed his relationship with his grandfather, the late Fritz Von Erich.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his relationship with Fritz: “That’s a deep question. I love my grandfather so much. He’d pick me up and take me on the tractor and I’d spend time with him all the time.”

On how Fritz related to his grandkids: “He loved us grandchildren. We just saw him as a jolly, good-time, fun grandpa. The man I look up to the most, he’s [his father] so, I want to honor him in every way I can.”

On carrying on the family legacy: “We’re Von Erichs. We didn’t pick this name. We didn’t buy it. It was given to us, we didn’t deserve it, and so let’s honor it and start deserving it.”

New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that Taichi will defend the King of Pro Wrestling Championship against Yoshinobu Kanemaru next week, and the competitors have chosen their stipulations for the fans to vote on.

Taichi chose a Whiskey Bottle Ladder Match while Kanemaru opted for low blows to be legal in the title bout.
