Veteran referee Earl Hebner has joined All Elite Wrestling along with a few “lesser-known zebras” who will be part of the promotion moving forward.
Hebner has been refereeing for the past 30 years and had a long stint in WWE before he was fired in 2005 with his twin brother Dave. He then joined TNA where he spent several years there, leaving in 2017. His son Brian, also a former WWE and Impact referee, was not part of the group that was hired.
Other referees who joined the ranks are Paul Turner from Ring of Honor, Aubrey Edwards, Rick Knox from Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, and Bryce Remsburg from CHIKARA.
