It seems like he was a promising young talent.  I saw him in the AWA and WWF.

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.

I found a little more info-

Spike was in the WWF in 84 & did St. Louis and Ohio shows. He was on an episode of Piper's Pit.

He came into the Chase tapings with Dr. Jerry Graham, Jr, also from Bruiser's WWA. Graham was originally going to manage Studd before Piper was placed in that role, and then later Heenan in the Fall.

Did he manage Adonis and Murdoch during those St. Louis tapings?  I have an audio on cassette and they have a manager I've never heard of.

Bruiser Brody booked World Class from around December of 1986 to May of 1987. He liked Spike Huber from their Indianapolis days and brought him in as a favor and to fill a vacant babyface roster spot after Dingo Warrior quit (he'd come back briefly before going to the WWF). Spike's spot teaming with Brody as Red River Jack at the Texas Stadium show was meant for Warrior. He did a union laborer gimmick with a hard hat and was gone after maybe two months. He looked good, but was short and didn't have much to make a fan want to see him.

Here's part of the Piper's Pit episode. Huber has as much personality as a wet towel.
