Melissa Ann Hiatt[1] (born October 16, 1963) is an American professional wrestler and valet, better known by her ring name, Missy Hyatt. She gained the majority of her fame while working for World Championship Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling. She also briefly worked for the World Wrestling Federation.



World Class and Universal Wrestling Federation

Hyatt's professional wrestling career began in 1985 when she was hired by World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW).[1] She was the manager of John Tatum, whom she was dating at the time. She was embroiled in a feud with another valet in WCCW, Sunshine. This rivalry culminated into a mud-pit match at Texas Stadium in 1986.[1]

Eventually, Hyatt and Tatum left for the Universal Wrestling Federation. At this time, Eddie Gilbert was the leader of "Hot Stuff International," a group that included Sting and Rick Steiner. Hyatt formed an alliance with his group and it was renamed "H & H International, Inc".[2] It was not long before Hyatt and Gilbert started an affair that caused problems with Tatum. Hyatt left Tatum for Gilbert in 1987, and they split up on screen as well. She married Gilbert in 1988.[3]

World Wrestling Federation

While still under UWF contract, Hyatt was contacted about working in the World Wrestling Federation.[1] Vince McMahon wanted Hyatt to replace the recently departed Rowdy Roddy Piper and his segment, Piper's Pit, with a new segment called "Missy's Manor."[4] "Missy's Manor" segments were taped on March 21 and 22 , and April 23, 1987.[5] The show was a disaster, and McMahon asked Hyatt to become a Federette, which were the ring girls shown at pay-per-views. She thought the role was beneath her, and she went back to the UWF.[4]

World Championship Wrestling

In 1987, when the UWF was purchased by the National Wrestling Alliance's Jim Crockett Promotions, Missy and Eddie came along. Missy was used as a commentator and then eventually as the manager for Gilbert and The Steiner Brothers.[1] She eventually returned to her role as commentator and hosted WCW Main Event.[1], and soon was engaged in a feud with fellow commentator, Paul E. Dangerously. The feud led to various competitions between the two, including an arm wrestling match at the Clash of Champions on January 30, 1991, in which Hyatt defeated Dangerously. A contributing factor to her victory might be because Hyatt had removed her jacket to reveal her low-cut top as the ref started the contest.[6]

Hyatt returned to managing in 1993, with an association with The Nasty Boys. She also briefly managed The Barbarian.[1] During a match, Hyatt jumped off the ring apron and her breast popped out of her top. When she went to the WCW offices the next day, they allegedly had a blown-up picture of it on the wall. Hyatt complained to her boss at the time, Eric Bischoff. Bischoff did not take action, so Hyatt went over his head, to his boss. As a result, Bischoff released her. Missy then decided to file a lawsuit against WCW for sexual harassment, and for overdue payments for her time doing a 1-900 hotline for the company.[1]

Extreme Championship Wrestling

In 1996, Hyatt joined ECW.[1] She was part of a sexual harassment angle where she kissed Stevie Richards against his will, and he filed a lawsuit. She became the manager of the Sandman in his feud with Raven, and had many catfights with Sandman's wife, Lori.

On June 22, 1996 at ECW's "Hardcore Heaven" event, Paul Varelans faced and was choked out by ECW star Taz, in what was promoted as a "Shoot Fight." Despite being promoted as a legitimate shoot fight, it is believed that Varelans agreed to lose via submission[1]. Missy Hyatt also claims in her book that Varelans agreed to lose if she gave him a blow job afterwards, but Hyatt blew him off and said that she doesn't blow "jobbers".[2] After this, Varelans supposedly became irrational and tore up the locker room. [3]


When Hyatt left ECW, she still worked for various independent promotions. She has worked for Women Superstars Uncensored (WSU) at all of their events in New Jersey since April 2007. She often hosts her interview segment, Missy's Manor.

In 2010 Hyatt will come to Germany for the first time ever and will work with the independant Federation DWA - Deutsche Wrestling Allianz at on of their biggest events, the Harley Night.

Personal life

Missy Hyatt is known for having many relationships inside the wrestling world. She married wrestler Eddie Gilbert and dated John Tatum. She also had relationships with various famous personalities such as Jason Hervey and Bill Fralic, and was once said to have been romantically involved with Gino Hernandez during her time in Texas. According to her YouShoot Interview, however, she was never involved with Gino, saying that if there was anyone that she regretted not having a tryst with, it was Gino. She, however, admitted in that same interview that she has slept with Jake Roberts, Eddie Gilbert, Road Warrior Hawk, Tom Prichard, Val Venis, and Scott Putski, and performed oral sex on Tommy Rich and Raven.[1] New Jack claims on his New Jack:Hardcore DVD that she is a former heroin addict.

In 2001, Missy Hyatt and Tammy Lynn Sytch decided to pose nude online and charge people for it. They created a website called Wrestling Vixxxens as a pay site. Both Missy and Tammy left the site due to a dispute with a business partner. Missy has since started a new pay site, MissyHyatt.net, featuring Missy, Tammy, Francine, Kristi, and Daffney, among others.
