When it comes to veteran WWE official Charles Robinson, two things probably come to mind. First, there is His iconic sprint to the ring at WrestleMania In a match between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. Second, being nicknamed “Little Niche” as part of the Four Horseman stable during his time with WCW in the late 1990s is a particular point of pride. But if you ask the man himself what has been the highlight of his nearly 30-year career, he won’t have to think twice. Despite suffering several fractured vertebrae and a resulting collapsed lung that night, it was still a tag team match on “WCW Nitro” in 1999.
“Absolutely, 100 percent,” Robinson told Ryan Satin “Out of character.” That particular match saw him tag along with his hero Ric Flair, against Randy Savage and Madusa. “I would have liked to have done more, but that was the highlight.” He pointed to hands-on experiences that made that night memorable for him. “Rick was so — you know, everyone from Savage to Piper was involved,” Robinson continued. “I got to work with all these great people who worked very well with me and mentored me and led me.”
The Current “WWE SmackDown” referee Doesn’t take an ounce of credit for how that night turned out. Instead, he saved it all for the talent he got to work with. “Everything I did was nothing, they made it look so beautiful,” added Robinson. “And I believe that 100 percent.”
