399. Nick Patrick

The WWE Hall of Fame has to date not inducted a referee (we aren't counting Teddy Long), and the belief by many is that if they do it would be Earl Hebner.  If that doesn't happen, then perhaps it would be Nick Patrick who was the son of Jody Hamilton who wrestled professionally as The Assassin.  Patrick trained to be a wrestler himself, but an injury changed his course into refereeing, and he would soon be named the Senior Referee by WCW in the mid-'90s. 

Patrick would be used in the New World Order angle as a corrupt official though he might be best known for the fast count gone wrong at the Hulk Hogan Vs. Sting main event.  He would later join the WWE and would work there for seven years.

The Bullet Points

  • Other Aliases: Joseph Hamilton (Real Name)
  • Why they will get in: He was a referee in the WWE.
  • Why they won't get in: There is yet to be a ref in the WWE Hall of Fame.
  • Five Greatest Matches/Moments:
    1. Named the senior official of WCW in the mid-'90s.
    2. Wrestled Chris Jericho (and lost) at the World War 3 PPV 11/24/96.
    3. Refereed every single match the Souled Out Pay Per View 1/25/97.
    4. Had a change of heart and was kicked out of the New World Order 4/6/97
    5. Wrestled Earl Hebner at the WWF Invasion PPV 7/122/01.
