Jim "Shoots" A-1
Back in 2006, regular contributor to this blog Jim from Chicago attended a TNA wrestling event in Steamwood, Illinois that featured a tag team match between Eric Priest and Chandler McClure against Tyson Dux and this thick, beefy muscleman, A-1 (sometimes spelled A1). Born Alastair Charles Ralphs in Canada in 1977, A1 is a former bodybuilder turned professional wrestler who retired in 2007, but returned to pro wrestling in 2008 as part of a small independent promotion in Ontario called Universal Wrestling Alliance. Thanks for the photos, Jim!
