***We got a really nice letter from Tim in August regarding Kevin's appearance at FanFest in Totowa, NJ. He gave us permission to use it on the site as we thought the rest of the fans might be interested in it. :-) Thanks Tim!
I went to FanFest this past weekend in Totowa, NJ and met Kevin Von Erich. He said he hasn't wrestled since 1994. He breeds and sells cattle now on his ranch in Texas. He said the grief he had when his brothers died, doesn't get any better, and that he misses them just as much today. He was a very nice man and a real class act. I would just like to add that Kevin said he now lives in Texas and also sells real estate. He was a really great guy.***
Though Kevin doesn't wrestle anymore, on occasion he does do appearances so we decided that we'd post them as we find out about them. If you know of an appearance that Kevin will be doing, send it in to us and let us know! :~)
