Sports Illustrated reports that Arn Anderson will make his first post-WWE appearance at Starrcast II in Las Vegas. It will be his first non-WWE appearance in almost twenty years.
Anderson said: “It used to be a dangerous setting when they handed me a live mic. So well see if it will be again. I was fortunate enough to work with WWE for 18 years. Certainly that provided my family and myself with a nice living, and I have no regrets. A lot of my best friends still work there. Everything has a shelf life, and I guess mine ran out.”
Conrad Thompson added: “Were proud to have Arn Anderson on stage as one of our marquee events. We cant wait for Arn to have a live mic in his hand, and stay tuned for more details.”
The event will run from May 23 to 26 at the official hotel Tuscany Casino and Suites and Caesars Palace.
Join us, World Champions, Hall of Famers, wrestlers, personalities & fans from all over the world as we descend upon Las Vegas, May 23-26!

Thompson said: “Were paying homage to the history of wrestling, and a large part of Starrcast is nostalgia, so Caesars Palace is the right fit. It just makes sense. And Tuscany Suites and Casino is our official Starrcast hotel, offering fans suites as low as $79 per night without a daily resort fee, and that is a bargain on a holiday weekend in Las Vegas. Tuscany will also host events each day including Superstarr Breakfasts, a Kick-Off Party, Jam Session, Video Game Tournament, Cosplay Contest, Karaoke, Wrap Up Party, and so much more.”
The event will include Sean Mooney interviewing Bret Hart, a one man show with Sting and a live edition of Chris Jericho’s podcast. It happens the same weekend as All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing, which happens on May 25.
Thompson continued: “I am very proud to announce a partnership with Podcast Movement, who will feature roughly two dozen shows across two stages Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, all at Tuscany. Podcast Movement will feature shows like Keepin It 100 with Konnan, The Lapsed Fan, an old wrestling magazine retrospective with Bill Apter, the Bruce Mitchell Audio Show, WrestleCrap with RD Reynolds, BotchaMania with Maffew, and many more. Podcast Movement tells me they plan to organize a panel for aspiring podcasters to learn how they can create and develop their own show. Aspiring podcasters will learn everything from what equipment they need to what marketing techniques have proven effective. In the coming weeks, Podcast Movement will allow podcasters the opportunity to register online to feature their show on their Starrcast stages at Tuscany that weekend, so keep an eye out for that as well. Youll have more wrestling at Starrcast than youll know what to do with. We cant wait for fans all across the world to attend.“
