Former WWE Referee Tim White Passes Away


-- WWE announced that former referee Tim White has passed away. He was 68. White worked with Andre the Giant on the road and grew to become one of his closest friends on the road while also juggling his refereeing duties. White was one of the company's top referees throughout the 90s before a shoulder injury ended his career and from there he shifted into a backstage role as a road agent and he was extremely well liked by the wrestlers.

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.
