AEW has taken the next step in its hiring process by announcing their referee’s. They announced on yesterdays episode of Being The Elite on Youtube that indie referee legend Rick Knox had joined the promotion and since then they have announced more hirings on their social media pages. Including arguably the most famous and well-respected referee in the history of the business…Earl Hebner:

Sir Mitch Says: Earl Hebner would most likely be in the WWE Hall Of Fame right now had he not started that shady side buisness selling WWE Merchindice with his son and brother. The man has been a referee for over 30 years and has been involved in some of the biggest matches in the NWA, WWF/WWE and TNA. He has also been a part of some of the most memoroble moments in pro wrestling history like the twin referee angle at the first Saturday Night Main Event and the infamous Montreal Screwjob.
No doubt he and the rest of AEW’s referee’s will help make the promotion the succsess we all hope it will be!
