Jeff Roth is a semi-retired American professional wrestler who has competed in North American independent promotions throughout the 1990s including Florida Championship Wrestling, Future of Wrestling and the National Wrestling Alliance. A frequent tag team partner of Anthony Michaels, the two wrestled as Schmuck and Snot Dudley respectively as well as competing under the name Wild Side. He and Michaels were part of Animal House with Chris Charger and Billy Fives, a stable which dominated numerous Southeastern independent promotions during the late 1990s.[2]

Career[edit]

Trained by "The Wild Samoan" Afa Anoa'i, Roth wrestled for numerous Northeastern independent promotions before forming a tag team with Anthony Michaels who had left Extreme Championship Wrestling in 1995. Wrestling as Schmuck and Snot Dudley throughout the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic independent circuit, the two were among the earliest tag teams to join Bobby Rogers' Future of Wrestling promotion in 1998.[2]

Forming a stable with Michaels, Chris Charger and Billy Fives, their stable Animal House would dominate FOW and other Southeastern promotions throughout the late 1990s. Roth, who used an underdog gimmick while in FOW, would win the FOW Lightweight Championship in addition to winning the FOW Tag Team Championship twice with Michaels and once with Charger.[2]

On July 6, 2000, he and Michaels took part in a special wrestling event at the Boys and Girls Club of Miami in front of over 2,000 children. After defeating their opponents, Phi Delta Slam (Bruno Sassi & Big Tilly), they also gave a "brutal paddling" to their manager Fabulous Frank.[3] He and Roth also competed in other Florida-based promotions that year such as Outlaw Championship Wrestling.[4]

On April 13, Roth and Michaels were among those at FOW's fourth anniversary show at the Bergeron Arena in Davie. Appearing on the undercard in front of 3,500 fans, with the main event being a 3-way dance between Terry Funk, Abdullah the Butcher and Kevin Sullivan, they defeated Suicidal Tendencies (Dennis & Sean Allen).[5][6] The event was later released in the promotion's first dvd, however their match did not appear.[7]

Feuding with The Vandalz during 2002, he and Michaels defeated their rivals at a June 29 house show in Davie, Florida attended by over 1,500 fans.[8] On October 18, Roth took part in a 6-way match against FOW Lightweight Champion David Babylon in Oakland Park, Florida. The other participants included Johnny Vandal, Chasyn Rance, Dan Evans and Mike Styles.[9] In December, their feud continued against Johnny Vandal facing him and Larry Lane in a tag team match[10] and in a 6-man tag team match with Nick Narcisstic against Johnny Vandal, Chaka & Bad Dog in Pembroke Pines, Florida.[11]

Following the close of FOW, Roth split up with Michaels and wrestled in various independent promotions including Southern Championship Wrestling[12] and NWA Florida where, June 12, 2004, he defeated Johnny Vandal in Davie.[13] He also faced his former tag team partner on the independent circuit, defeating him in a Super 8 Tournament on January 10, 2004.[14]

At the supercard Pro Wrestling Fusion, an interpromotional show between NWA Florida and NWA Sunray, Roth again faced Johnny Vandal at the Davie PAL on June 12, 2004.[15]
