With the recent passing of Jack Lotz and Billy Caputo, as well as watching alot of old WWF TV lately, I figured I would start a thread on the officials of that era.  I have enjoyed reading many of the comments, memories and insight on Caputo and Lotz and figured we could elicit a few more thoughts on some of the other guys.  Here is an short list off the top of my head.
Dick Woehrle--Gilberto Roman--Billy Caputo--Jack Lotz--Dick Kroll--Wee Willie Webber--Henry Terranova--Victor Quinones--John Stanley--Mario Savoldi
Im sure there is many more to add.

You're forgetting the two most important New York referees from Bruno's first reign. Danny Bartfield and Eddie Gersh. Bartfield was a fairly successful fighter which is probably why he got the very politically connected job with the NYSAC. Bartfield also referred boxing at the Garden. Gersh worked tons of matches and Dick Kroll had gone on the record of saying he learned so much from him.

Might be outside the time range but Jesse Ventura gave Joey Morella hell during any match he ref'ed, especially if it was a Hogan match; I can recall him calling Morella "Hogan's personal ref".

At the time I didn't know this was Gorilla Monsoon's son and this was a rib.

Gorilla often trashed his son too though.
