In the world of professional wrestling sometimes just a one on one match isn’t enough to settle feuds or keep the viewer interested. Sometimes you have to shake up the outcome of a match by putting a twist on the action and adding a special referee to make sure the match is as interesting as possible.
There have been many special guest referees throughout the long history of the WWE, but for this list, only 5 of the best superstars who put on the black and white stripes could be picked.
Here are the 5 best special referees that WWE ever produced.
#5 Mick Foley
Mick Foley has been a special referee on multiple occasions in WWE and most of his appearances in this role haven't been extremely entertaining.
Why does he make the list you ask?
Well for his performance at Wrestlemania X-7 in the Vince McMahon vs Shane McMahon street fight. Mick normally acts as the standard, down-the-middle official which to some members of the WWE universe is seen as boring, but his role as the referee at Wrestlemania X-7 makes up for all of this.
When Vince got that crazy look in his eye (you know that look), and appeared to be about do something awful to his wheelchair-bound wife, Foley inserted himself into the picture and got up in Vince's face and backing him down. This led to Vince rapping Foley with a couple of genuinely frightening chair shots.
Foley was down for some time but when he regained consciousness he began thumping Vince into the corner and setting him up for a coast to coast by Shane.
It was a great performance by the hardcore legend and nabs him the number 5 spot on this list.
