– On the latest episode of his podcast Grilling JR, Jim Ross revealed that Dean Malenko recently underwent brain surgery to try and treat Parkinson’s disease symptoms.

Ross said that he saw Malenko backstage at Dynamite on Wednesday in Oklahoma and the surgery was done to stop his shaking due to Parkinson’s, and the surgery was successful.

The 63-year-old former Four Horsemen member is a coach in AEW and a senior producer and has been signed to the company since May 2019.

He previously worked as a producer for WWE for 18 years until he was released from the company in April 2019.

– Black Bart, former WCCW Champion, has provided a health update.

Earlier this year, Bart revealed he has Stage 4 Cancer. He’s had a bumpy road to this point with some victories and some less than victories in his treatment. His liver cancer has shrunk and is being maintained. But, his prostate cancer has gone to where he needs radiation and they are going to try and cut it out with surgery.

Bart was a WCCW World Champion, a WWF wrestler from 1989 to 1990, and a mainstay of the Dallaarea after that including long runs in the GWF and beyond.
