Timothy Rhys White (March 25, 1954 – June 19, 2022) was an American professional wrestling referee. He worked with World Wrestling Entertainment as a producer on the SmackDown! brand. During the 1980s and 1990s, White worked as André the Giant's assistant in addition to his referee duties

White started as a part-time referee in 1985 while working as André the Giant's agent. In 1993 shortly after Andre's death, White became a full-time referee appearing more frequently on pay-per-views and WWF television tapings.

On June 28, 1998, White was the referee for the legendary Hell in a Cell match between Mankind and The Undertaker at King of the Ring. After Mankind fell through the top of the cell and landed hard in the ring, White, fearful that Mick Foley was seriously injured and needed immediate medical attention, came close to declaring the match over at that point, but Foley begged him not to. 

On December 18, 2005, White made a controversial on-screen appearance at the Armageddon pay-per-view.  In a segment, a "despondent" White was interviewed by SmackDown! reporter Josh Mathews inside the bar he owned, the Friendly Tap in Cumberland, Rhode Island

Tim White, a longtime pro-wrestling referee who worked for WWE, has died, the company said Sunday. He was 68.

White worked for WWE for more than 20 years. He started for working with Andre the Giant and was a part-time referee when he began in 1985.

He was a part of some of the most famous WWE matches in the company’s history, including the 1998 Hell in a Cell match between The Undertaker and Mankind at the King of the Ring.

"A shoulder injury effectively ended White’s in-ring career, but White still remained a major part of WWE working behind the scenes as an official and talent agent until 2009," WWE said.

"WWE extends its condolences to White’s family, friends and fans." WWE stars Shawn Michaels and Big E were among those who paid tribute to the referee.
