Ass Kicker Alliance and Steel City Slammers pics  
Fellow participants in the "Ass Kicker Alliance" wrestling storyline; C.O. Hustler, Chris Hickok, Rok Wyler, Craig Hartzel, Jake Williams, 
Viper, G-Moe, "Rev" Greenwood and "Sheik Abdul Hassan". The idea for the AKA angle originated in 1998 during a visit to a local pub.  ​


A tribute to a few more of the many tough, athletic, charismatic and benevolent personalities from the 
Independent wrestling circuit who brought it to the squared circle between the years 1982 and 2003.  
Some have retired.  Sadly, a few have passed away, and the rest just keep walking down the ramp 
and stepping in between those ropes. 

​(Please note: Many of the images shown on this page were taken during the 1982-2003 timeframe, while some were taken 
afterward. They are not in any particular order, and some of them have been resized and / or converted to black and white 
for formatting purposes.)  More workers from this era are always welcome.
