The WWE had heartbreaking news to share as they announced long-time referee David Hebner has passed away at the age of 73.
Hebner’s nephew, Impact Wrestling referee Brian Hebner, confirmed his uncle’s passing on Twitter.
“Im so sad. Just don’t really know what to say. Today we lost one of the good ones…….My uncle David,” Brian Hebner tweeted. “He was one of the best humans in the world. Thank you all for all the outpouring of messages and support. This is a tough one. I Love You Uncle David. God got a good one.”
Dave is best known for his run in WWE from 1986 to 2005.
In February 1988, Hebner was part of one of the most famous angles in pro wrestling history when Andre the Giant controversially beat Hulk Hogan for the WWE Championship.
Dave was released from his WWE contract in 2005 and did little in major wrestling promotions after that, aside from an appearance in TNA later that year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
