Rousey & Neidhart Feud Heating Up, Legendary Ref Passes Away
As they build to their match, the Rousey & Neidhart feud is heating up. Plus, another legendary referee passes away.
The two women have a history, and now Rousey & Neidhart’s feud is heating up ahead of Money In The Bank. Plus, another legendary WWE referee passes away.
Rousey & Neidhart Feud Heating Up
As these things tend to do, the Rousey & Neidhart feud is heating up ahead of their upcoming title clash.
The two WWE Superstars meet in Las Vegas in a couple weeks. Ronda Rousey’s SmackDown Women’s Championship is on the line.
Natalya won a #1 Contender’s match several weeks back.
Since earning the shot, things have been chippy between the two on Fridays. That’s to be expected.
Recently, however, the sparring and jabs left the ring…and entered social media.
Rousey took a shot at Natalya and her family, and things just broke down from there.

Here’s Ronda, with the first shot:

And here is Nattie’s retort…
It was either do a channel with my hot sister, or bring people to a rock at the back of my farm to cry and talk about conspiracy theories. I chose the sexy sister thing. Cause we might be weird, but we’re not as weird as your hot takes on life. https://t.co/dFHQusIXIH https://t.co/6SyWNhL5bU

Now, given the two are heading for a title fight…it’s possible this is entirely part of their plan.
However…even though the two trained together, with Neidhart helping Rousey become a WWE Superstar…it’s entirely possible that this is a legit beef too.
One way or another, things should get settled…or at least worked out a bit…when the two lock up in Sin City.
Legendary Ref Passes Away
For the second time in the past week, a legendary referee passes away.
Last week, it was Dave Hebner. Now, Tim White.
The news was shared by WWE, and via their social media account.
Here’s the company’s remarks on his death:
WWE is saddened to learn that long-time referee Tim White has passed away.
WWE extends our condolences to White’s family, friends and fans.https://t.co/qFSeSw5eRF

You can see just how much White meant to so many in professional wrestling, based on some of the comments.
So heartbreaking – loved whenever I got to spend time with Tim – such a kind soul & had the biggest heart 🖤 https://t.co/L60FSaPZmb

I will always cherish our amazing conversations Tim.

Many other notables shared condolences and recalled just how amazing a ref and a person Tim White was.
If you grew up during the Attitude Era, or just happened to catch them somewhere online, you might be familiar with some goofy segments White was a part of.
Meaning, while he was a legendary referee, he had range as an on-screen character and made an impact.
Losing Dave Hebner and Tim White in a weekend is a sad loss for wrestling and, of course, for the Hebner and White families.
Referees don’t always get remembered, but those two made their marks.
