Has anybody heard anything about former WWF referee Dick Woehrle lately?

Doesn't he live in New Jersey or Delaware?

I always thought that he would have some great stories of behind-the-scenes for the TV tapings.  I do not think Woehrle would have anything to worry about in regards to be being blackballed by Vince.  None of the refs have come out with books have they?  Gilberto Roman would be great literary work.

Do you think he is getting any type of compensation from the WWE in regards to retirement?  Has he been inducted to any HOFs?

There's currently a bidding war for Dick Woehrle's book.

It looks like he was attending autograph signings and reunions through 2004. 

I would look at his possible book as being sort of the same kind of book that MLB umprire Ron Luciano wrote with "The Umpire Strikes Back."  Many of the wrestlers during his time period were in and out of the WWF while Woehrle was there for most of the time, so I think he would have collected some good stories over the years.

Ya know other than the interview Bruno has done and the shoot interview that Zbyszko did and uh well the one that (loose cannon) Ken Patera did, there really isn't much out there in terms of "what was happening behind the scenes in the old WWWF" so I would really like to hear what Dick has to say.

That is what I mean, beej.

Wrestlers came and went but Dick was there for most if not all the 70's.  I am sure he would have seen some things that would be of interest to fans even though he did not work the major cards.

Let Dick know that if he includes a LOT of detail about his AWA/Pro Wrestling USA involvement, I'll buy his book.  Fifty pages or more would be satisfactory.
