The Bushwhackers

Luke Williams and Butch Miller are one of the most versatile and successful tag-teams in professional wrestling.

They achieved their greatest fame wrestling as the loveable and outrageous Bushwhackers. Their antics entertained millions and they capitalized on that success to make appearances on several television shows, including the highly rated "Family Matters."

Longtime fans remember a different side of "Cousin Butch" and "Cousin Luke." When Williams and Miller, along with third partner Jonathon Boyd, wrestled as the Sheepherders they were one of the most violent teams in the history of wrestling. They wrestled ECW-style before there was an ECW. South Texas had the reputation for being the bloodiest and wildest territory in the country and the Sheepherders led that style.

The wrestlers they’ve brawled with and beaten read like the "who’s who" of wrestling.

Their match against the Fantastics, Tommy Rogers and Bobby Fulton, in the New Orleans Superdome at the first Crockett Cup Card is considered a classic. The Sheepherders beat Steve "Dr. Death" Williams and Ted DiBiase in one of the greatest UWF tag title matches ever. The Sheepherders had a legendary feud in Oregon with Rowdy Roddy Piper and Rick Martel. The Sheepherders nearly tore down Texas buildings against the Road Warriors. Among the great teams they beat in Texas include the Grapplers and the Zambuie Express. Alabama fans still remember the Sheepherders feud against Austin Idol and Robert Fuller. The Sheepherders and the Fabulous Ones sold out buildings all over Tennessee battling over the Southern tag-team championship.
