Here at Pundit Arena, we are massive fans of Nigel Owens. The Welsh rugby referee has won the hearts of the world with his strict officiating and quick-witted remarks. He has gained international fame by performing under pressure at the highest level, while always leaving room for a bit of humour.
However, perhaps he is not widely known in the United States, but he got a shout out in WWE’s Monday Night Raw.

This is simply fantastic, and it is a testament to how well known the whistle blower has become. He retweeted the video himself, adding a characteristic quip to boot.
Did the commentator mention my name? Now am not sure I would be able to cope being in the ring refin these men lol https://t.co/u3bu15tc1h

The Welshman is regarded as the best referee in rugby, and in our eyes, he trumps officiators in any sport. But hands off, he’s sticking with rugby for the time being.
