April Hunter is an American professional wrestler, pro wrestling valet and model.
April Hunter was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 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 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 venerable Killer Kowalski. She began working on the independent 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 fellow 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 ("T &A") and J.D. Michaels.
Hunter has competed for multiple American promotions, fighting and defeating both men and women including Ring of Honor and TNA Wrestling, and has toured Europe, Japan. Puerto Rico, Canada, UK/Ireland and Mexico several times.
On August 30, 2006, April married her Canadian wrestling boyfriend, J.D. Michaels, in a small, private ceremony at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
She speaks some Spanish, German and French.
April fathers side is from Edinburgh, Scotland. Her mother's side is from Naples, Italy. They met in Philadelphia and April was conceived in Hawaii on her fathers military break from Vietnam.
April was born with pneumonia and has battled COPD, asthma and chronic bronchitis all her life. Fitness is a lifestyle for her to maintain her health. She is also hearing-impaired.
