We are very sad to learn about the passing of Dave Hebner, the legendary pro wrestling referee was 73-years-old at the time of his passing. His cause of death is not yet public.

The Cauliflower Alley Club made the public announcement of Hebner’s passing. They did not offer much in the way of details, but we are grieving along with the entire Hebner family.

The CAC is saddened to hear that legendary referee Dave Hebner has passed away at the age of 73. We send out our sincerest condolences to his family and friends during this most difficult time. R.I.P. Dave.

Dave’s most iconic role in pro wrestling would come as he and his twin brother Earl Hebner were involved in an angle that cheated Hulk Hogan out of the World Title. He continued as a pro wrestling referee for decades after that. Hebner was also United States Military veteran and proudly represented other veterans as well.


Our thoughts go out to Dave Hebner’s entire family at this time. RIP.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
