Former WWE Referee Dave Hebner Dies at Age 73

Former longtime WWE referee Dave Hebner died Friday at the age of 73.

Hebner’s nephew, Impact Wrestling referee Brian Hebner, confirmed his uncle’s death on Twitter:

Dave is best known for his run in WWE from 1986 to 2005, during which time he primarily served as a referee before transitioning into a backstage role as a road agent during the latter portion of his career.

In February 1988, Hebner was part of one of the most famous angles in pro wrestling history when Andre the Giant controversially beat Hulk Hogan for the WWE Championship on The Main Event.

The referee counted to three despite Hogan’s shoulder being up, which led to another referee who looked identical to the one in the ring running out to challenge the decision.

It turned out that the referee in the ring was Earl Hebner, who was Dave’s identical twin brother and went on to have a lengthy officiating career in WWE and elsewhere in his own right.

The storyline as told by WWE was that “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase had paid a man to get plastic surgery in order to look exactly like Dave Hebner, which explained Earl’s identical appearance to Dave.

Dave was released from his WWE contract in 2005 and did little in major wrestling promotions after that aside from an appearance in TNA later that year.

It was revealed in a class-action lawsuit filed against WWE in 2016 by several former wrestlers and employees that Hebner was suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

Dave Hebner Career

Hebner debuted as a professional wrestling referee in the late 1970s in the Richmond, Virginia area. In 1986, he began working for the World Wrestling Federation, where he refereed many historic matches such as Randy Savage versus Ricky Steamboat at WrestleMania III and Randy Savage versus Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania V.

Perhaps his most memorable appearance came on the February 5, 1988 episode of WWF The Main Event, when he was assigned to referee a match for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship between Hulk Hogan and André the Giant.

André defeated Hogan after Hebner’s twin brother, Earl, had switched places as Ted DiBiase had locked Dave in a closet. Earl Hebner quickly counted to three as André pinned Hogan, despite Hogan clearly having his shoulder up. The match and the WWF Championship were awarded to André as a result. Both Hebners received a $2,500 bonus for the match.

Prior to WrestleMania IV, the WWF attempted to extend the “evil twin” referee storyline through a kayfabe “investigative report” published in the promotions’ flagship publication, WWF Magazine. The article used a fictional backstory to build sympathy for Dave by claiming he was continually victimized by Earl’s misdeeds committed in Dave’s name since their childhoods. 

In a 2001 interview with WWF Raw Magazine, Dave Hebner said the angle was soon dropped after he had suffered broken ribs when Earl kicked him (as part of the aftermath of the Hogan-Andre match during The Main Event).

As a result, the storyline was shifted to have Earl come clean, and he was the referee when Randy Savage won the Tournament final at WrestleMania IV against Ted DiBiase for the WWF Championship.

After retiring as a referee following knee replacement surgery, Hebner became a road agent. He worked as a Road Agent until July 2005, when he was released from contract.

After being released, Hebner debuted in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling on the December 17, 2005 episode of TNA Impact!, appearing on the stage during a match between Team 3D and The Diamonds in the Rough. Hebner later became the manager of The Lumberjacks of MMWA Wrestling from 2012 to 2022.
