The wrestling world has been going through a lot this week. Another legendary WWE referee has unfortunately passed away, the company announced on Sunday.
Tim White, who began his officiating career in the ring in 1985, has passed away. He was only 68.
Some of his most iconic matches include 1998’s Hell in a Cell Match between Undertaker and Mankind at King of the Ring.
“Unfortunately have learned that former WWE referee Tim White has passed away, per the company. Sending love to his friends, family, and colleagues,” Sean Ross Sapp tweeted.
WWE released an official statement:
WWE is saddened to learn that long-time referee Tim White has passed away.
For more than two 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.
Less than 24 hours ago, the company also announced the death of David Hebner, 73, who worked for WWE for more than two decades.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
