April Hunter is an American professional wrestler, professional 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 an erotic 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 (after they saw her layout in Playboy) 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 is the very first female in pro wrestling history to hold (male) Tag Team Titles (with Wagner Brown), securing both JAPW and 3PW tag gold. Hunter also formed one of the first women's tag team in the United States 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 Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, and has toured Europe, Japan. Puerto Rico, Canada, UK/Ireland and Mexico several times. She is one of the notably few western women to be invited back more than five times to work Japan's prestigious and rigorous fight circuit. Hunter has also made guest appearances with Carmen Electra's NWWL, working matches in the nude. November 2006 Paris, France: April Hunter won the Queens of Chaos world title. Queens of Chaos is a prestigious and respected women's wrestling tournament featuring the top wrestlers from all over the world.

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.
