293. Earl Hebner
As of this writing, there has yet to be a referee inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and we are not counting Teddy Long, who largely got in on his role as a manager and the Smackdown general manager.  If that ever happens, our vote is for Earl Hebner.

Hebner is one of the few refs who was regularly involved in angles, and no we are not talking about Survivor Series 1997!  The senior referee for years and the go to for many wrestlers when they wanted an important match officiated, Hebner deserves to be the first ref inducted…should they feel they ever want to induct one.

The Bullet Points

  • Billed From: U.S.A. (Richmond, VA)
  • Why they will get in: Referees are a vital part of wrestling. Someone should be inducted.
  • Why they won't get in: He did not leave the WWE on the best of circumstances.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments:
    1. Made his WWE debut as the “evil” brother of Dave Hebner on the Main Event on NBC between Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan (2/5/88)
    2. Was involved as the referee in the “Montreal Screw Job” (11/9/97)
    3. Hebner teamed with The Rock to defeat  D-Generation X (Triple H, X-Pac & The Road Dogg on RAW (5/4/00)
    4. Defeated Nick Patrick at Invasion (7/22/01)
    5. Was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame (2015)

Should Earl Hebner be in the Hall of Fame?

Definitely put him in! - 88.2%
Maybe, but others deserve it first. - 5.9%
Probably not, but it wouldn't be the end of the world. - 5.9%
No opinion. - 0%
No way! - 0%
