Jody Hamilton was a large capable grappler but fairly nondescript. Once he donned a mask and teamed with Tom Renesto as the masked “Assassins did he find a comfort zone and really developed the art of heel wrestling and heel tag teams. The duo ran roughshod over numerous territories and captured tag straps wherever they competed. When Renesto retired, Hamilton would keep up the Assassin gimmick as a solo and with other workers who would become “masked Assassins”.
Hamilton would later be a successful trainer working for the WCW Power Plant and promoting his own smaller territories. The Assassin is one of the few who gave back to the industry after he longer competed in it.
