April Hunter Speaks On Playboy, Wrestling Nude, WCW & More
www.WrestlingINC.com recently had the opportunity to interview former WCW diva, April Hunter! April is a professional wrestler, valet and model. She has appeared in several Magazine's including Playboy, Penthouse, MAXIM and many others. In the interview she speaks on several interesting subjects including her WCW career, exotic dancing, wrestling nude, posing for Playboy and much more! Below is the complete interview:

Andy Steven: Firstly April I would like to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to take part in this interview for www.WrestlingINC.com. How did you break into the wrestling business and what have you been up to recently?

April Hunter: Well...more or less I was part of the "original diva search" but without the $250,000 contract...meaning, I did Playboy & was a Met-RX spokes model and WCW saw it. They interviewed 12 of us and hired 5. I was put with the nWo...and bored after a while just walking the guys down to the ring. They came to me and asked if I wanted to be their version of "Chyna and Sable" and get trained to wrestle. When I left to begin training at Killer Kowalski's, both WCW and ECW folded. So, I've been doing a lot of indies and overseas tours ever since.

What's next for me? Well, I'm leaving on Thursday a tournament in Paris, France. 12 of the top women's wrestlers from Japan, Europe, UK, Canada and USA (Queens of Chaos) on Nov 11th. I'm also in MAXIM Magazine (at this point, it's the Latin America version), which is hitting stands this month in both USA and elsewhere. And I have a few new DVD's out! So between trying to balance tours, wrestling, a new puppy and not losing my real job because of tours, a new puppy and wrestling, it's keeping me busy.

Andy Steven: What was your childhood like, did you watch wrestling growing up?

April Hunter: No. My brother and I were wicked Kung Fu and karate fans...we both competed in Tae Kwon Do and I'm also a fan of UFC. My father was a amateur wrestler and shoot fighter. To be honest, the wrestling I knew of growing up - to me - was cheesy and had too much screaming and brightly colored spandex. We were military brats...we moved a lot. I grew up a little here and there and have spent time in Philly, Alabama, Maryland, N. Carolina, London England, Vegas, Boston, CT, Florida...but call Philly home.

Andy Steven: You were an erotic dancer, however you disliked the industry and became a fitness model, what made you want to be an erotic dancer and what didnt you like about the industry?

April Hunter: Money. I was broke, five days late on my rent and needed to do something that made money without having to wait 2 weeks for my first check. Dancing was it. I didn't like the club owners "dancers are a dime a dozen" mentality. But there's a lot of that in wrestling, too. I like think you get further with people by treating them decently...but maybe I'm idealistic.

Andy Steven: You signed with WCW in 2000, how did you get in talks with WCW?

April Hunter: Modelling. They contacted me through agent Rich Minzer.

Andy Steven: You were an nWo girl at the start of your WCW career, working with several other models such as Tyleme Buck, Pamela Paulshock, Midajah OHearn and Kim Kanner. What was it like working with these models and was there ever any b---hin?

April Hunter: Fun, for the most part. I always had to drive...everyone else was a Cali girl and none of them could negotiage the streets of the northeast. Of course there was b---hin'...we're females. I could tell you lots - but then I'd have to kill you.
