The Wrestlin' Trucker

Which pro wrestler goes to his matches in a rig? Tookie Tucker, The Wrestlin' Trucker! 6 foot tall Tookie (real name Alex Roma) was trained by WWE legend Mr. Fuji in 1998 and wrestled in Japan and Puerto Rico till 2000. He started training in WWE's developmental school the year after, but the tragic events of 9/11 devastated this New Yorker so he hung up his wrestling boots and evaluated his options. It wasn't long after that he started his own business, All-American Trucking, a company wherein he owned and operated 10 trucks and 12 trailers. In 2006, he decided to go back to wrestling and the Tookie Tucker persona was born. I haven't come across any wrestling news or information regarding Tucker that isn't current (most of it, like the photos below, are from 2006 - 2008) so perhaps he's not as active as he used to be. Too bad because I'd like to see more of this wrestlin' trucker in the ring.
