Randy "Pee Wee" Anderson (July 17, 1959 – May 5, 2002) was a professional wrestling referee who worked for the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions and World Championship Wrestling.

Career

Anderson started out training for a professional wrestling career with Arn Anderson and Tony Zane under the tutelage of Ted Allen. Anderson started working as a referee upon his graduation in 1980 in Mid-South Wrestling. He also refereed in Florida Championship Wrestling before arriving in the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions in 1985. He quickly rose up the referee ranks and was the referee for several main event matches.

In 1987, he had a short appearance in the Sylvester Stallone movie Over the Top.

In 1988, when Ted Turner bought Crockett and renamed it World Championship Wrestling, Anderson stayed on.

Anderson was the referee in charge of the main event six-man tag match at Bash at the Beach 1996 which saw the heel turn of Hulk Hogan and the formation of the nWo.

The most fame Anderson received was in 1997 when Eric Bischoff and the nWo bullied him around. Bischoff fired Anderson and he ended up having a match against fellow referee Nick Patrick of the nWo and defeated him by using a foreign object to get his job back.

Anderson continued as a referee in WCW until he was forced to retire in 1999 due to his battle with cancer. Randy died on May 5, 2002 at the age of 42. He was survived by his wife Crisite, daughter Montana, and son Chase.
