Hager also replaced Ken Timbs, once again, in the Fabulous Fargo tag team in World Organization of Wrestling in 1987. He also formed a long time tag team with Johnny "Bam Bam" Reeves known as The Boogie Woogie Men. They won the Mountain Wrestling Association (MWA) tag titles multiple times.

As a singles star, Hager was one of the most popular in central Kentucky.[1] In 1995, Hager purchased Mountain Wrestling Association (MWA) from Dale Mann, but sold it in 1998. In 1999 Hager got back into the wrestling game by starting Universal Wrestling Alliance (UWA). UWA also never reached the success of the MWA and eventually folded in 2001. Hager retired permanently in 2001.[1]
