WWE Hall of Famer visits families during trip to Israel

An article from The Jerusalem Post has highlighted efforts from Kevin Von Erich to support those in need during his trip to Israel.

The WWE Hall of Famer states in the interview that while he was happy to show up for the Israeli premiere of the Von Erich biopic The Iron Claw, his trip was largely focused on showing his support by meeting with the families of hostages as Israel remains in an ongoing war.

On the impact of meeting with the families, along with those whose loved ones were lost in an incident on October 7, Von Erich stated:

“I don’t want to speak out like I’m someone who knows something. All these people are suffering. I know I have a following here and I thought if I could come here and just hurt with them. I don’t know that there’s anything I could say, but I could just hurt with them.”

Ross and Marshall Von Erich, Kevin’s sons, were set to join him on the trip but unable due to their passport renewals not arriving in time due to the holidays.

Von Erich also met with the President of Israel during the course of his stay in the country, per PWInsider.
