Backstage agent and former wrestler Dean Malenko has left WWE.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso, Malenko recently quit after many years in the company as a backstage agent. We’ve since confirmed the report with sources, though additional details on the reason for his exit have not been made available at this time.
The report from SI implies the former WWE and WCW star would be a good fit behind the scenes for upstart promotion All Elite Wrestling, though there’s no indication if that’s even an option.
WWE has not released a statement on the matter, but they rarely comment on the status of employees … so it’s unlikely they’ll confirm his departure.
