Though the first run for MLW went well and was at the right time it only lasted though from 2002-2004 before filing for bankruptcy. A few years ago the company returned and not only has this time around been more successful financially, but in general for the company. Though a lot of the news about the company has been simple a majority of the news has been positive. Recently, some historic news has come down from matchmaker Cesar Duran for the event scheduled for January 21, 2022, at MLW Blood & Thunder.
For the first time in over forty years the Von Erich family will challenge for championship gold in Dallas, TX. During the territory era each region had their top stars, but Texas was different because they had a family not just a top star. The Von Erich family name is one of the most well known families in the history of wrestling. On January 21, Ross and Marshall not only get the chance to continue the family legacy, but they're getting the chance to become the first tag team to win the MLW tag title on two occasions.
The first time around the Von Erich's won the tag team titles in November 2019, holding the gold for over 400 days. Los Parka's would end the title reign for the Von Erich boys in January 2021. Ross and Marshall had been off television recently with both boys having some time with family especially for one of the brothers who had recently became a father.
