Kenta Kobashi to appear at Starrcast II


One of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time has been added to next month's Starrcast convention.

It was announced this morning that Kenta Kobashi will be appearing at Starrcast II. This will be Kobashi's first appearance in the United States in almost 14 years. He wrestled for Ring of Honor twice in October 2005, which included his match against Samoa Joe at the Joe vs. Kobashi event in New York City.

In his interview with Sports Illustrated about WWE pulling The Undertaker and Kurt Angle from Starrcast, Conrad Thompson had noted that he was working on bringing a Japanese wrestling legend to the convention.

David Crockett, LAX (Santana & Ortiz), and AEW tag team Private Party (Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy) have also been confirmed for Starrcast today.

Starrcast is taking place at Caesars Palace and the Tuscany Suites & Casino in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend (May 23-26). AEW Double or Nothing will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, May 25.
