Former WWE referee Tim White has passed away aged 68.

A popular presence on WWE TV from the 80s through to the mid-2000s, White performed referee duties on a part-time basis during from start of his run in 1985, whilst also working as Andre the Giant’s real-life manager and associate outside of the ring.

White would continue in his refereeing duties until suffering a shoulder injury in 2002, with the injury forcing his in-ring retirement in 2004.
