Dean Malenko Reportedly Quits WWE

Favorite of many sadly departs WWE…

Strong sources suggest Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years behind the scenes as a producer.

According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years with the company. The report doesn’t share any details, but noted that he has been responsible for many of the tag team matches. This is is the third high profile departure of a long-term backstage personality, with Arn Anderson and Road Dogg Jesse James both leaving in recent months.

Greg DeMarco’s Take

Obviously, we here at The Chairshot are bummed. Dean Malenko is one of my all time favorites, as he was one hell of an in-ring technician known for having “ice water” running through his veins. He brought a sense of realism to his matches, and that made up for any lack of size and charisma.

Also, hearing that he was responsible for producing the tag team matches has be double bummed. While it wasn’t a primary focus of the company, when given time their tag team division always kicks ass. No better time than now to hop on the #SaveTagTeamWrestling train!
