Herman Marion Sadler III (April 24, 1969) is an American race car driver/announcer and professional wrestling promoter from Emporia, Virginia. He is also an advocate for autism research, as his daughter Hailie Dru, was diagnosed with the disorder in 2001. His younger brother Elliott Sadler is also a NASCAR driver.
Sadler graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1991 with a BA in Industrial Relations, serving as an equipment manager for the school's lacrosse team. He also was a roommate at the school with Benny Parsons' son Keith.
Hermie started the United Wrestling Federation, wrestling promotion in 2005. At first, the company worked with TNA Wrestling bringing house shows under the TNA/UWF moniker to areas like Detroit, Philadelphia, and other parts of the east coast. Hermie wrestled part-time in his promotion as well, teaming with Rhino, Jeff Hardy, Team 3D, and others.
In late 2006, the UWF ceased co-promoting with TNA and began independent operations in 2007, although they continue to use the six sided ring that TNA utilizes. At a show in Richmond, Virginia on September 29, 2006, Hermie presented a $10,000 check to an Autism foundation. On December 5, 2007 he signed with TNA as an announcer.
As of March 27, 2009, he has been hosting an online web cast show entitled Hermie's Hotseat that can be seen on TNA's YouTube channel where Sadler does candid sit-down interviews with the performers and employees of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
It was announced on April 21, 2014 that Sadler joined the board of directors for Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling.
