    Create-A-Referee Thread

    Welcome to the Create A Referee thread. For the first time in FWA history, you can now create and design your own referee for us to use in any given show. From now on, each card will list one of these referees to each featured match. You have the opportunity to have your referee spotlight in the FWA. Disclaimer however, there is no guarantee we will use your referee on the show. Feel free to have fun and submit any idea you'd like, but if it's too silly we probably will not use the referee on a consistent basis. Overall we are looking for more serious applications, and not ones that you generally would find in our Create a Jobber thread. That does not mean your creation won't be totally excluded, and you may see him officiate a jobber match or be featured in the 24/7 Championship thread. Be creative and have fun!

    You can use the template below to submit your referee's application. Feel free to list their name, career background (Have their officiated before? What companies? What did they do before being a ref? Are they a former wrestler who couldn't cut it? Or did they always want to be a ref?), Personality (Are they timid, or would they stand their ground against a heel who's being a jerk?), Officiating Style (Are they a by the book referee who calls everything as they see it, or would they be more laxed about some rules? Do they count too fast? Too slow? Etc.), Base Pic (Refrain from using any taken base pics per usual).

    Re: Create-A-Referee Thread




    Referee Name:
    Richard Davis

    Career Background:
    Davis is a career referee. He's officiated wrestling and MMA matchups all across North American, and has even done a stint officiating in Japan. He started officiating at the age of 29, and has since become a veteran inside the ring.

    Before becoming a referee, Davis was an American Football player. He played running back at TCU for two years before blowing out his knee.

    Davis is proud of his accomplishments, and looking forward to new horizons in the FWA.


    Personality:
    Davis has a strong willed personality inside the ring and outside of it. He grew up on the streets of Brooklyn, and learned at a young age not to get pushed around. He won't be intimidated by anyone.

    Officiating Style:
    Davis is a by the book official. He calls it how he sees it, and won't let any bias impact his ability to call the match effectively. He has pride in how he officiates, and would be upset with himself if he were to commit an error or miss an important call in a match.

    Referee Name: DJ Franchise

    Career Background: A former referee of an Indy company PSW

    Personality: Younger Brother of former CWA superstar CJ Franchise. Very out thrill-seeking and can be a little disrespectful.

    Officiating Style: Mostly by the books, but if it's a high-paced match or a blood feud, he will be lax with count outs or DQs. He counts slow.

    Re: Create-A-Referee Thread

    Referee Name: Giovanni Blanco

    Career Background: A ten year veteran, former head referee of numerous Mexican promotions he is also the regular referee for the annual 205 lbs or under King of Juarez tournament. Expected to be the lead official at the Warehouse Trios Carnival.

    Personality: A respectful man of good morale standing. Little to no bones in Blanco’s closet. Quietly patriotic.

    Officiating Style: Considered a fantastic referee with great ring control but there have been some doubts expressed over his ability in a standard tag team environment. There have been reports from house show that he often “missed” tags and let the action continue with an illegal man. Of course, in Mexico, a physical tag does not have to be made to switch between competitors.

    Re: Create-A-Referee Thread


    Referee Name:
    “Big and Mean” Matthew Dean


    Career Background:
    A former golden gloves boxer and bouncer. A career in wrestling seems to go almost without saying; he spent a decade working the independent scene in his native Canada, either chokeslamming his opponent through the mat or punching the nose out their face with one of his knock out blows until heart issues put pay to his wrestling aspirations, unwilling to leave the sport he loves he took the unusual route of becoming a ref quickly being picked up by FWA

    In his spare time owns his own tattoo parlor and has quite a successful podcast on tattoos.

    Personality:
    A hard man through and through, as you can imagine from someone that has the words “FUCK” and “YOU” tattooed on his knuckles, he doesn’t take shit lying down. Sure, at his core, he’s a nice guy. Great to get a beer with and shoot the shit, a great pool player by all accounts. but if you step up to him, he has no problem taking it outside


    Officiating Style:
    Weedy refs, that take a small hit that and lay down on the canvas for twenty minutes? Fuck that noise. As you might expect from someone that stands 6’8, Matthew Dean takes shit from no one. At the same time, he isn’t what you call a stickler for the rules and happy to give wrestlers a bit of leeway. He won’t take short cuts lying down. If he says, let go of a hold, and you don’t? He will physically drag you off. If you complain that his count is slow or if you lay your hands on him? He’d be more than happy to smash you in the face with one of his lethal left hands. Your buddy is losing and you wanna run in and help him out? Boot to the face. He’s typical used in special stipulations or matches with a lot of bad blood. Where the danger to refs is at a high and well..who better to be in charge of incredibly violent, physically dominating fighters than someone who someone JUST as capable?

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    Re: Create-A-Referee Thread




    Referee Name:
    Gracelynn Guerrero

    Career Background:
    Formerly a soccer referee at both the high school and collegiate level, Guerrero began officiating wrestling matches at some more lower and independent venues over the past year. She's now making waves as the first FWA female referee, and is looking forward to continuing to break barriers within the world for women everywhere.

    Personality:
    During wrestlers with all female competitors, which Gracelynn is used to, she will not be intimated. However in a match with males, she may be a bit more timid to stand up for herself or make certain calls when starting out. Maybe after some experience in the ring she will get better at this.

    Officiating Style:
    Grace isn't the perfect referee, but she tries her best and hopes to be as impartial as possible. She is human though after all. Some wrestlers in the past indy promotions she's refereed for have complained that her count is too slow, but some people feel like they are just discriminating against her because of her gender.

    Re: Create-A-Referee Thread

    Referee Name: Larry Stevens

    Career Background: The son of former CWA senior referee, Billy Stevens. Larry has chosen to follow in the footsteps of his father and has become a referee. He’s learned everything that he needs to know about being referee from his Dad, and he’s reffed some independent shows before getting hired by the FWA.

    Personality: He’s a bit of a carefree, laid back kind of guy. Kind of a goofball that gets along with everyone.

    Officiating Style: He may laid back but he isn’t a pushover when it comes to officiating and he’ll call it right down the middle. He isn’t afraid and he won’t back down from any heel wrestler that may berate him. He takes the job seriously and he wants to make his father proud.

    Referee Name:
    Thomas (Tommy) Palmer

    Career Background:
    Licensed with numerous state athletic commissions throughout the United States, Tommy previously worked as referee for every major boxing and MMA promotion. Tommy transitioned to professional wrestling with the advent of professional wrestling company HONOR Wrestling.

    Personality:
    Tommy is a gentlemen who enjoys a good drink and a nice women from time to time. He is very laid back when not officiating but becomes a strict authoritarian once the bell rings.

    Officiating Style:
    Tommy is a walking combat sports encyclopedia. He knows and follows the rules exactly as they were written. Tommy respects and looks out for the safety of the combatants in the ring, but has been known to be lenient with the rules during championship matches to ensure that there is a definitive winner (slower outside count, leniency on rope breaks, etc.)

    Official FWA Referee Application

    Referee Name:
    Richard Ryder (Although some people who aren't a big fan of his refer to him as Dick Ryder instead)

    Career Background:
    He spent years refereeing with some other major wrestling federations. However, some of his in-ring antics and an alleged bribery scandal forced him out. Over the last few years, he has gone back to refereeing for various independent federations. He was given a second chance at big-time officiating by FWA, and is determined to clear his once good name.

    Personality:
    Since he's working so hard to reestablish himself as a professional wrestling referee, he does have a tendency to take himself a bit too seriously. He's very intense, which tends to rub some wrestlers the wrong way. He's been known to get in the face of wrestlers who he feels are crossing the line or don't respect him as much as he believes they should.

    Officiating Style:
    By the Book
    Perhaps a little too much
