Dean Malenko, who recently quit WWE following eight years of work as a backstage agent and many more with the company, has announced an appearance at Starrcast II. WWE barred current employees The Undertaker and Kurt Angle from appearing at the event, and the quick turnaround between Dean’s departure from the company and this announcement surely seems to be more than a mere coincidence.
This Superstarr is known as The Man of a 1000 holds!! He’s held championships all over the world… #Starrcast II is proud to welcome DEAN MALENKO to Las Vegas, Memorial Day Weekend!
Appearing Friday 1-4pm at Caesars Palace

Will this mean that Dean will bring his backstage skills to WWE’s new rival promotion? It’s not clear yet, but we’ll certainly be keeping our eyes out for any and all AEW news as Double or Nothing approaches.
