It has sadly been announced by Mike Mooneyham on Twitter that former WWE referee Mickey Jay Henson has passed away. This is likely due to his battle with cancer he has been undergoing.
Current WWE referee Charlies Robison posted, "I heard today the former #wcw and @wwe referee Mickey J Henson is not doing well and is in a hospital in Miami. Covid, pneumonia, and severe lung damage. Asking for his friends and fans to think about him and say a prayer. A really great guy with a heart of gold. I have never heard anyone say something negative about him."
