Hey guys, Knox here, I'm definitely running out of topics as of late to say the least lol. But heck, I decided why not blog on some of my favorite referees of all time, this will be fun. Hope you guys enjoy.
Top 5 Referees:
5. "Rugged" Ronny Garvin
To me he's one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time for any promotion. It sucks when injury hits and the only thing available for you is to referee. He was awesome to watch perform so I had to throw him on this list.
4. Nick Patrick
He innovated heel referees. I don't know much about times before 96' but I do know that Nick Patrick was pure gold. He was funny as hell as a heel when he used to wear the neckbrace. His work with the NWO was gold and I absolutely loved his feud with Chris Jericho.
3. "Dangerous" Danny Davis
One of the good heels that never got his due. He had the worst attire ever but he still could perform and draw major heat. Dude was sick.
2. Pat Patterson
Hall of Famer Pat, one of my favorite guys. Love to hear him talk on the Classsics on Demand roundtable talks. This guys knows the business probably more than anyone alive. He's been McMahon's guy for a while. He's worked as a performer including the first ever Intercontinental Champion, he's been a ref, an agent, and even did some creative work. He defines a legend in my opinion.
1. Earl Hebner Sr.
One of the most known referees. He's damn near reffed in every major promotion ever. I believe he did some work in the NWA. I know for sure he's worked in the WWE and currently works in TNA. Great ref and the most known ref of all time. If he could get inducted in the referee wing of the Hall of Fame that would be a very special moment. He's called some of the most influential and game changing matches of all time from the 70's all the way to matches today in TNA. Great guy.
Hope you guys enjoyed this. I'm damn near bushed from thinking of topics, I literally dug in the back of my brain for this one. If anyone has any topics they want me to blog on just comment this blog and tell me or leave it in my inbox. Be safe guys and thanks for the support good and bad. Until then.
