• Another Legendary WWF Referee Passes Away

After the passing of Dave Hebner, we are saddened to report that another legendary WWF referee has passed away – Tim White.

He was 68 years old.

WWE posted the following today:

“WWE is saddened to learn that long-time referee Tim White has passed away.

For more than 2 decades, Tim White was a dedicated WWE referee and official. White began his illustrious career in 1985 working with Andre the Giant and as a part-time referee.

During his tenure, he was the referee for some of WWE’s biggest matches, including the infamous Hell in a Cell Match between Undertaker and Mankind at King of the Ring 1998.

A shoulder injury effectively ended White’s in-ring career, but White still remained a major part of WWE working behind the scenes as an official and talent agent until 2009.

WWE extends its condolences to White’s family, friends and fans.”

RIP Tim White
