Tim Donaghy already brought the sort of crooked, scripted outcomes professional wrestling loves to the NBA -- and lost his job and went to jail.

His newest employer, Major League Wrestling, thrives on those sort of shenanigans.

The fix is in!

That’s just fine this time around for MLW and Donaghy, the disgraced former NBA referee who pulled on the pinstripes and made his ring debut for the Florida-based promotion in typical nefarious fashion.

Donaghy was the latest wrestling ref to side with the bad guy and used underhanded tactics against Savio Vega to pull off the illegitimate victory. The bell rang at the end of the Caribbean Strap match and Donaghy raised the hand of the cocksure co-conspirator Richard Holliday.

They were in cahoots all along!

“Tim, you called that right down the middle,” Holliday said in the post-match interview.

“Absolutely, just like in 2007 when the Lakers played the Kings, everything was on the up and up,” Donaghy said.
