It’s not just NXT wrestlers who get called up to the main roster, it happens for referees too – and that’s exactly what happened today for one official.

The announcement was made on Monday by SmackDown referee Jason Ayers, who also works in a behind the scenes position.

“So glad to be able to welcome [Eddie Orengo] to the [WWE] main roster team full time today,” Ayers tweeted alongside a pic of he and Orengo. “A shame he’s on #RAW and not #SDLive, but I’m incredibly happy for his success and proud to work alongside him!”

Orengo began working for WWE as a referee in 2015.
