Watching the GAB '85, he was there. I was wondering when he faded away. Could not have been long after this. Seems like it became primarily Tommy Young, Pee Wee Anderson, Teddy Long, and the young African American guy, can't recall his name. Also, Dick Woehrle was there sometime around '86 or '87.

Woehrle mostly did the Philly and Baltimore shows. The young African American ref was Stephen Gregory. Scrappy McGowan came back as well.

That's right. Stephen Gregory! Wonder what became of him? Can't recall Scrappy coming back of the top of my head. SWJ, did Fargo become ill or something?

I believe you're right on the Sonny timeline. They phased Stu Schwartz out as well. Dunno if it was a mutual decision but I hated to see those guys go.

Remember, Earl & Dave Hebner started with JCP too and Earl was there right up until he started with Vince doing the "evil twin ref" thing.

Scrappy was there quite a bit between 1985 and 1987. Sonny had diabetes but I don't think he got really sick until the early '90s. Lost both his legs. Stu's still living. Down in Florida.

Mike Fever also did some reffing at this time.

Now I think I recall he and I discussing that when he reffed for us in '04 and '05. I really couldn't envision it off the top of my head though.

Stu Schrawtz looked like he could clean the clocks of many of the wrestlers if he wanted to, I always wondered if he had any background as a wrestler before putting on the stripes, does anybody here know?

Scrappy McGowan and Teddy Long eventually became the primary refs in the WTBS studio era of JCP from 1985 into early 1989. I don't recall seeing Tommy Young there much.

When did Nick Patrick start refereeing for JCP? Immediately after the TBS slot went to Crockett? Or after that? When did he transition from wrestler to referee?

I don't think Nick worked for Crockett during their TBS days, did he? He worked for them a bit while Jody was there (1983-85), first as a ref, then as Assassin #3, but I only recall him returning after the sale to Turner.

Tommy was there a bit...and Pee Wee. Mike Fever and Stephen Gregory were around more than people seem to recall. I think Earl mostly did the syndicated shows and the houses.

I think Nick Patrick was brought in early part of 1989.
