British wrestling talent Ian "Doc" Dean, best known as one-half of Liverpool Lads in All Star Wrestling throughout the 80s and 90s alongside current NXT trainer Robbie Brookside, has died at the aged of 48. Brookside posted the sad news on his Twitter.
RIP Ian Doc Dean. I met you in 1984, you were dressed in a Doctors coat, a pair of rubber boots and a helmet. From then on we drove down every road and sailed the 7 seas. The great times will always be with me forever. I shall miss you my dear friend. Forever with me.x pic.twitter.com/XyZsQQHBAW— Robby Brookside (@RobbyBrookside) August 14, 2018
He also made appearances on WCW in the late 90s on Monday Nitro, Thunder, and WCW Saturday Night. He also appeared for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Best of the Super Junior IV tournament in 1997, defeating Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Jushin Thunder Liger.
