April Hunter (September 24, 1974 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American wrestler, valet and model.
April Hunter was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but moved to Enterprise, Alabama with her father when her parents divorced. She attended college in Philadelphia, majoring in English, Biology and Chemistry, but dropped out after several years. At the age of nineteen she began working as an erotic dancer. Then 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. Hunter left WCW later that year to become a fully trained wrestler.
In 2001 she moved to Boston, Massachusetts to train under the venerable Killer Kowalski. She began working on the independent circuit. 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 the tag team "T & A" and tag with 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. Hunter has also made guest appearances with Carmen Electra's NWWL, working matches in the nude.
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's father's 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.
