Ric Savage from "American Diggers," whose real name is Frank Huguelet, stars in the Spike TV reality docu-series.

Born and raised in western North Carolina, Ric Savage is a former professional wrestler turned artifact recovery expert, hunting relics from America's past. He is the owner of the top artifact recovery company in the country, American Savage, based in Mechanicsville, Virginia.

"Heavy Metal" Ric Savage had a prolific seven year career in the sport, competing in nearly every wrestling organization, among them the WCW (World Championship Wrestling), the ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) and the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance). Following his retirement from professional wrestling in 1997, Savage returned to his other passion, the Civil War era, by getting his start in relic hunting. His first major find, a hunk of shrapnel he found at the site of the Battle of Cold Harbor, Virginia, prompted him to form American Savage and continue his pursuit of history and riches. Since its inception, American Savage has recovered a wide range of valuable items, including hundreds of Civil War bullets, dozens of Civil War artillery shell fragments, multiple Native American arrow and axe heads, a set of prehistoric shark teeth and a Civil War era beer bottle.
