Holy cow, they actually give these guys bios?


    Aaron Mahoney has risen up the ranks to become a SmackDown referee through sheer hard work and perseverance.

    Growing up in Williamsport, Pa., the Little League capital of the world, Mahoney has been a fan of WWE since before the birth of WrestleMania. Although fascinated by the WWE Universe from the start, he knew at a very young age that his size made the chances of him becoming a Superstar very unrealistic. So, he decided that he would find another way to make his dream of sports-entertainment glory come true.

    Mahoney understands that the key to being an effective referee is not to let anyone intimidate him. No matter what size Superstars he finds himself officiating, he always strives to maintain his authority and to do everything he can to make even the largest Superstar follow the rules. "Goose" loves that he is an important part of everything going on in the ring and is enjoying every minute of it.

    Overall, Mahoney looks to achieve a childhood goal very soon, to be a part of WrestleMania.


Sports-entertainment glory indeed!

And why the hell not? Most referees also have to set up and take down the ring. Meaning 60-70 lbs heavy steel support beams to haul around, setting them up properly, securing the whole thing, tightening the ropes just right (the slightest misadjustment can throw the whole thing out of whack), not to mention the ring is carefully centered. Add to that performing 4-5 matches per evening, and this includes Raw and the SD/ECW/Superstars taping the next night along with the occasional house show. I don't care if you're a cardio machine, you WILL be exhausted at the end of the week.

A lot of people overlook them as unimportant. Including Vince I suppose, if recent guest commentary is to be believed ("Charles Rob--...the referee!"). But these guys bust their ass just about as much as the wrestlers, the least they can do is give them a little acknowledgement in the form of website bios.

I am sorry to see I have apparently touched a nerve. I mean no disrespect to the world's professional wrestling referees. It is ironic that WWE, which in the past couple of years has stopped acknowledging the referees on air, provides such detail on their careers online. That is all.

I mean, look at Charles Robinson's! It's longer... well, I don't have anything witty to finish that with. But his bio is pretty long.

Yeah, reading that back I DID seem a tad defensive there. My apologies. I just hope I at least helped paint a more accurate picture of the referee situation, having been there myself.



My side is the side of love, peace and submachine guns.

I guess I did just pretty much spell out exactly what you were saying in my second post there.

Well, it's YOUR fault for bringing these bios to my attention!

Not seeing any little Maple Leaf flags I wonder if there is a White Castle in Canada? I heard good things about it but never had one or saw it where I live... Well I just got a Krispy Kreme a little while ago. So I guess baby steps for us Canucks.
