In a new interview with Nick Hausman, Kevin Von Erich first revealed that he isn't sure what they're going to say in the upcoming movie and how he's doing live shows to get his story out there before anybody else gets the chance to tell it.

“Well, you know, there’s this movie coming out and I have no idea what they’re going to say. I decided to [do live shows] because I really don’t know what they’re gonna say and I wanna kind of [get a rebuttal out there]. There’s some crazy stuff on that internet and I was afraid they’d use some of that stuff for this movie and make my dad look terrible and make Kerry look terrible, I just couldn’t have that.”

Von Erich went on to express confidence in the film despite not knowing much about it, noting that the director and actors have poured their hearts into it.

“I don’t know a thing about it. My sons went down there and they did some stunt work for the wrestling part of it, but I have no idea what they’re gonna say. It turns out, Sean Durkin called me and I got a feeling it’s going to be a really good movie. When the boys went down there to shoot this scene, which was in Louisiana, they have built their own sportatorium. They built their own, it’s an exact replica of the sportatorium. They’ve really gone all in on this and when my boys went down there, Kerry [Von Erich’s] daughter was also down there and she’s a friend with Sean Durkin too. Hollie was there, and they were meeting the actors and the guy that is going to play my dad came out there. When Hollie saw him, she immediately cried. She loved my dad so much, all of the kids loved my dad. When the actor saw that Hollie had cried, he started crying. It just said to me that these people are really pouring their hearts into this, they really want to do a good work. If you try that hard, I really think you’re gonna do alright. I can’t wait to see it, I think it’s going to be a good movie.”
