– WWE announced the following on their website today:

Referee Mike Chioda suspended
August 15, 2011

  • Cboz78

    Best ref is “Little ‘Natch” Charles Robinson!!

  • Bawb

    I hope this has absolutely nothing to do with Benoit reference.

  • Ronni

    That explains the arm band he was always wearing. I knew Chioda was shooting up

  • Centerman

    Why’s he on the Junk?

  • Effmenow


    Mike Fuckin Chioda? Seriously?

    This man is a legend.

  • KitKrock

    Mike Chioda helped X-Pac shave Jeff Jarrett’s hair at summer slam 12 years ago.

  • deva

    how come guys like randy orton can take steroids and not get suspended? should be the same for everyone

  • Rob

    Ouch, and he’s like the best ref they have! Man…

  • Automattic

    @Houndy that would explain a LOT

  • Houndy

    No no no….you have it all wrong. He was walking through the corridor at SummerSlam last night and happened to stop to tie his shoelace next to WWE Creative’s locker room. He made the mistake of taking a deeo breath before his stood up and *POOF*….he’s high from second-hand Creative smoke.

  • Trixie

    For real? He’s been around for ever. What the fuck?

  • Automattic

    I knew it! I knew Chioda was having a lot of fast 3 counts lately! And not to mention how it’s affecting his vision and causing him to miss all the cheating!

    But seriously, I had no idea refs had to undergo drug testing also. Could be any number of things.
