In Israel.
I don't know. Not too bad I guess. Nothing athletic, wrestles in a t shirt but seems pretty trim and in good shape. Kevin puts in a good amount of ring time. A little awkward, but Kevin always kind of was.
Very good crowd. What are the larger promotions in Israel and does wrestling draw well there these days?

The heel rabbi dude is the promoter. He's put on some muscle, but some of you should recognize him. It's our old pal Gery Roif.

So long from the Sunshine State!

A good reminder how big the Von Erich's were in Israel. Crazy how folks still remember 35 years later.

Glad to see Gery still going hard.

Was curious about this as I've seen KVE reference a trip to Israel in the past couple of weeks.

What kind of paycheck would get Kevin to come out of retirement to do this? He looked to be in solid shape for his age.

Did the announcer say Los Angeles Heavyweight Championship?

Gery has come a long way from doing a Hogan cosplay gimmick. I'll give him that. Will watch all of this later but I remember him doing the Hogan fan service for a long time.

Ok just watched the match. Eh. Indy stuff but I popped for Kevin and Marty getting into it.

Ross and Marshall are insanely athletic that's for sure but I really didn't see much outside of them jumping really high. For as long as they've been around now it kinda sets up a red flag all they really did were a bunch of drop kicks and variations of kicks. Now it could be who they were facing. Gery while looking in better shape wasn't good at all. Marty didn't seem to want to do much and the other guy bumped like a champ but don't don't have much else going for him.

Still cool to see Kevin "the Highlander" work one more match and the crowd was super hot for him so that's all that matters in the end. Still amazing even with the raw talent and lineage that Ross and Marshall aren't in a major promotion being taught while working. They could legit be big stars. All the talent is there.

Kevin is a very nice guy his politics and religious beliefs are pretty extreme. He is like the Euell Gibbons of wrestling. I seriously think that if the world went to shite and we had to live like cave men off the land he would be the happiest man alive.

I do laugh on Twitter when Trump says something goofy and Kevin "likes" them. Not surprised though given his Daddy and Texas background.

Is it just me or is it a little surreal to hear a bunch of Isralis cheering for someone with a German surname and whose father was a Nazi-Sympothizer character early on in his career?
