Former WWE Referee Names Easiest & Most Difficult Stars To Work With WWE

Former WWE referee Jack Doan has revealed which performers he believes are the best and worst to work with.

Doan was released from WWE in 2013, after 22 years with the company.

Appearing on SportsKeeda Wrestling’s UnSKripted podcast, Doan spoke about which WWE performers were a pleasure to work with, and which ones were not so much:

“The most difficult I would say, Shawn Michaels in two forms. One, when he was going through his days, which he’s very open about, when he was a jerk and going through times with his addiction.

“He was very tough to work with in the ring, but the other part about it, he was such a professional that he wanted perfection.

“So, he would scream at you in the match if he didn’t feel you were in the right place or where you needed to be.

“(Chris) Jericho was the same way. Jericho was just, you know, they want the best matches. They work hard, work their butt off. They want to be the top match of the night, and the referee can ruin that match.

“The best probably to work of all, Undertaker. Some of the top guys you would think would be the hardest who were actually the best.

“Brock (Lesnar), Taker, Kurt Angle, all those guys were so easy to work with in the ring.”

Of the names Doan mentioned, only Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar are still active performers. Jericho is signed to AEW, and currently holds the ROH World Championship.

Brock Lesnar appears for WWE on a part-time basis, most recently wrestling at the November 5 Crown Jewel event, defeating Bobby Lashley.

Jericho will defend his ROH World Title in a fourway bout at the November 19 Full Gear pay-per-view.
