Talk Is Jericho: The Anatomy Of A Pro Wrestling Referee

Talk Is Jericho: The Anatomy Of A Pro Wrestling Referee

So what exactly does it take to be a great pro wrestling referee? Former WWE ref Marty Elias has a few thoughts about that and breaks down the skills and knowledge needed to be a top ref in the biz, how he learned and who he learned from, the importance of in-ring chemistry, and what he instills in the students he trains at Rocky Mountain ProWrestling in Colorado. Marty also talks about the worst bumps he’s taken in the ring, both accidentally and by design, some of his favorite matches, how being a jack-of-all-trades at WWE helped his career, and what it was like being the Great Khali’s talent handler for a year.
