AEW has been in news lately and some of the biggest advertised stories related to the upstart promotion are regarding the various wrestling stars they have signed to the company.

However, the newly founded wrestling company has also been hiring a lot of other professionals to help run the things flawlessly and the latest one of these names to join the organization is Earl Hebner:

With over 4 decades of experience in the business, Hebner is one of the most experienced and well-known wrestling referees out there.

He started out in 1977 and since then he has worked as a referee for a number of well known promotions including TNA and NWA. He has been the referee of some of the very significant matches in the history of the business.

Though he is probably best known for his 17 years long tenure with WWE. He refereed many main event matches for the company and probably the most well known of them all is the 1997 Survivor Series match between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart.

Although it’s worth mentioning here that Earl is not the only name that has been signed by the promotion in this capacity.

In the past week, the company has also announced signings of Paul Turner, Rick Kno, Bryce Remburg and female referee Aubrey Edwards from their twitter account.

All of these signings are expected to be in action for the upcoming Double Or Nothing event and it’d be interesting to see how AEW’s referees differ from other promotions.
