In case you’re wondering why we made signs for a referee, let’s take a look back on Memory Lane… Charles Robinson was once the personal referee for The Nature Boy Ric Flair, earning himself the nickname Lil Naitch. He once ran 5 miles down the entrance ramp at WM XXIV to count the pinfall that ended The Undertaker’s match, thus extending his streak. And if you haven’t caught onto it yet, pay special attention to his reactions during any match he officiates – he’s the most animated and entertaining referee in the business!
For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.
Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.
It's still real to me, dammit!
