Ex-WWE Ref Names Shawn Michaels & Chris Jericho As The Worst Guys To Work With


Both Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels are legends of wrestling with countless fans each, but not everyone is a diehard fan of the pair.

In 1991 Jack Doan joined WWE, originally as a truck driver, before becoming a referee until his release in 2013.


Appearing on SportsKeeda Wrestling’s “UnSKripted” podcast, Doan said that Shawn Michaels was difficult to work with.

“The most difficult I would say, Shawn Michaels… When he was going through his days, which he’s very open about, he was a jerk and going through times with his addiction. He was very tough to work with in the ring.

“The other part about it, is 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.”

Doan added that Chris Jericho, who has often been compared to Michaels, was no cake-walk either.

“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.”

On the opposite end, Doan named The Undertaker, Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar as the easiest guys to work with in the ring.
