So I was watching an old Survivor Series tape my brother just got (1989) and I saw Zeus (on "The Million Dollar Team") shove Ref Earl twice, as Earl was trying to stop Zeus from strangling Hogan. Zeus gets booted out of the match. It got me thinking about other great ref shoves in wrestling history, and who was the "best" at it, if such a thing is possible.

My money is on Flair...the shoving matches he had with Nick Patrick were part of his classic schtick, but I haven't seen him do one in awhile. Are there any other great (or not so great) examples of refs being purposely pushed?

I remember Charles Robinson and Buff Bagwell had some pretty entertaining shoving matches, to the point where Buff would end up on his ass begging off and apologizing.

But the best part is once Robinson walked away, Buff would look into the camera and say he's not really sorry.

Look who I met NOW, suckas.

I gotta go with Triple H vs. Earl Hebner. HHH always does the "I push you, you push me harder and then I beg off" with Earl. It's always fun.

WADSWORTH: The games up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.
SCARLET: Oh, come on, you don't think I'm gonna fall for that old trick?
WADSWORTH: It's not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the study. Two for the chandelier, two at the lounge door, and one for the singing telegram.
SCARLET:That's not six.
WADSWORTH: One plus two plus two plus one.
SCARLET:Nuh, uh. There was only one shot that got the chandelier. That's one plus two plus ONE plus one.
WADSWORTH: Even if you are right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus TWO plus one plus one.
SCARLET:(thinking) Okay, fine.One plus two plus one--(angered) Shut up!

Wasn't it moreso Tommy Young than Patrick, or was it pretty equal? I remember back in my young, heady days of markiness thinking Tommy Young was one badass referee because of them.

Jim Cornette used to be pretty good at it, as far as comedy spots go.

And not that this is exactly the same thing, but for some reason I still find it funny whenever Undertaker is choking out some guy and the ref starts warning him; then Taker turns around and stares at the ref as if he's going to jump him, and the ref leaps out of the ring in fear.

Not only that, but sometimes they change it up where Hebner even shoves Triple H to the mat and then yells at him and points down while Triple does the begging.

It's almost become one of Triple H's trademark spots. Definately my vote too.

Super-silly coming from the guy who booked Karl Malone, Dennis Rodman, Jay Leno and David Arquette in PPV main events. To paraphrase Ian Malcolm, the lack of humility before history on diplsay here is staggering.
