Hardy is known for his expansive on-and-off presence in WWE for over a decade. In 2020, he made his debut in All Elite Wrestling. Unsurprisingly, he is familiar with many prominent superstars and personalities from the industry.

He has officiated many iconic matches in the McMahon-led company. Robinson also participated in some matches and is considered a veteran referee in the industry.

Matt Hardy recently took to Twitter to share an image with the WWE official.

"Great to run into @WWERobinson yesterday. Charles is one of the best human beings in the pro wrestling industry," tweeted Hardy.
