I believe I heard he was Dick the Bruiser's son in law and then was fooling around on Dick's daughter and got blackballed from wrestling.

What's the full story on that?  Did Dick have that much stroke to get someone banned nationally?

Was Spike's future bright, or was he an upper mid card kind of guy who got a push in WWA because his father-in-law was the boss?

Spike was a moderate talent at best who got pushed due to nepotism in Dick's territory and fucked that up.  I wouldn't say he got blackballed, he just wasn't good enough to get pushed anywhere else once Dick fired him.  But he bounced around and didn't disappear completely.  I want to say he even got some tryout matches in the WWF and might have jobbed for them during the 1984 expansion.
