April Hunter - Women Wrestling

I think this quote from Wrestling Clothesline sums up exactly the way I feel about the Indy wrestlers......
" Since Vince McMahon won't take women wrestling seriously and TNA won't even give it a second thought, someone has to give credit to those women who are working week in and week out, in those high school gyms and broken down Elk's Lodges, for barely enough money to pay for gas and tolls."

So without further ado......

April Hunter was born on September 24th, 1972 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
She is an American female pro wrestler, pro wrestling valet and model.

April Hunter was born in Philadelphia but moved to Enterprise, Alabama with her father when her parents divorced. At the age of sixteen she returned to Philadelphia. She attended college, majoring in English, Biology and Chemistry, but dropped out after several years. At the age of nineteen she began working as a dancer, but found that she disliked the industry, so she became a fitness model instead.

In 2000 Hunter was hired by Terry Taylor on behalf of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as a member of the "Black and White" nWo. Along with four other models (Tylene Buck, Pamela Paulshock, Midajah O'Hearn and Kim Kanner) she accompanied members of the nWo to ringside for their matches. When the nWo split up, the models remained with Scott Steiner, and were identified as his "freaks". Hunter left WCW later that year following a pay dispute.

After leaving WCW, Hunter decided to become a wrestler, and in 2001 she moved to Boston, Massachusetts to train under the legendary Władek "Killer" Kowalski. She began working on the indy circuit, and eventually met Slyk Wagner Brown, who she would both manage and form an intergender tag team with known alternately as Team SWB and Big Red or Team Underground. Hunter also formed a tag team with another Kowalski graduate Nikki Roxx in World Xtreme Wrestling known as The Killer Babes. Hunter went on to form tag teams and win titles with Talia (TNA's Velvet Sky) and J.D. Michaels.

Hunter has competed for multiple American promotions, fighting and defeating both men and women including Ring of Honor and TNA, and has toured Europe, Japan. Puerto Rico, Canada, UK/Ireland and Mexico several times.
Among the wrestling promotions she had worked for are Far North Wrestling, German Stampede Wrestling, Great Canadian Wrestling, Jersey All Pro Wrestling, Jersey Championship Wrestling, NWA Cyberspace, Pro-Pain Pro Wrestling, Queens of Chaos, USA Pro Wrestling, Women's Extreme Wrestling, World Xtreme Wrestling and many more.
