On-screen people think referee only makes sure that rules are followed. But in reality referees play a bigger role than that.
they hand out blades if the superstar is about to cut them selves.
what else do they do?
do they call moves also?
how the fuck do they hide doing that in front of such a big audience and live tv?

From what I gather, they relay messages from the back, help keep track of time, give reminders and direction if they have to. They hide it through camera angles, covering up and they don't exactly yell things out and keep it as simple as possible.

I always thought it was that mysterious guy sitting next to the announcers who relayed the timing signals. I'd even read that they had it down to a system where the direction he was looking indicated "speed up" or "slow down."

every ref wears an earpiece. They get instructions from the back about the match and spots, most likely. They probably then pass the orders to the wrestlers. Its not that difficult to hide during the course of the match, b/c not many people pay attention to the ref, unless you're specifically looking for call outs.

And the ref also delivers messages from the other wrestler to the other.
