Conrad Thompson, the founder of Starrcast, has warned that the participation of The Undertaker in the event has nothing to do with AEW. “I know there are people who might assume this is an AEW event, but it’s not true, we have wrestlers from companies all over the world, Starrcast is not exclusive to All Elite Wrestling fans, it’s open to all fans. of wrestling.
The Undertaker is synonymous with wrestling and many generations of fans have grown up with him. We wanted to bring something special and unique to Las Vegas and we do not believe there is anyone so special in this business as The Undertaker, “said Thompson.” The experience of having The Undertaker here makes it worthwhile to come to Starrcast. “Finally, the coordinator explains that it is expected that the tickets to acquire his autograph session go on sale at the end of the month and that they will be sold out quickly.
The AEW Double Or Nothing show is scheduled for the same day May 25, which could generate rumors about a possible participation of “The Phenom” in the event. However, there is no direct relationship between the two celebrations. Dave Meltzer already reported last week that The Undertaker would be negotiating independent appearances outside of WWE. The Wrestling Observer specialist journalist added that he would be asking about $25,000 per hour of appearance.
