Old School WCW/WWF Veteran “The Man Of 1,000 Holds” Dean Malenko (Real name: Dean Simon) celebrates his 60th birthday today.
Dean Malenko first made a name for himself in NWA Eastern Championship Wrestling / Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1994 to 1995, before he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1995 to become a part of the Cruiserweight division during the famous Monday Night Wars.
In early 2000, Malenko joined Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit & Perry Saturn and together they left WCW and signed with the World Wrestling Federation, where they became known as The Radicalz.
He retired from active professional wrestling in 2001 and became a road agent for the WWF (later WWE), a job he did until April 2019.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAN MALENKO!
• Former Women’s Champion Open For Another Run In WWE
Former WWE Women’s Champion Melina recently spoke to Instinct Culture, where she was asked if she’d open to a WWE return.
Below is what she replied:
“I always say everything will happen if it’s meant to happen. If an opportunity shows up, of course, like who wouldn’t? But if there’s never an opportunity I am okay with that too, I am thankful for what I’ve been able to do, because I didn’t even think I would be able to do that.I never in my wildest dreams, ever thought that I would be on TV or that I would have a video game or an action figure, or be in magazines in England, Australia, Mexico and different parts of other countries…I never thought I could do that, that that would be me. So all this, I am happy, I am very grateful.”
