Samuel Yoder (born Samuel Blank Yoder on October 13, 1965) is a Mennonite American entrepreneur and professional wrestler currently wrestling for the World Net Wrestling Alliance.

History

Samuel Yoder is the oldest son of Eli & Ruthie Blank Yoder. Yoder was born into a family of wealth, his father owning a large Pennsylvania dairy and his maternal grandfather owning a small chocolate and candy factory. Even though the family was wealthy, they lived by their strong Mennonite ideals and lived a humble, Plain existence. Yoder attended a conservative Mennonite church with his family and attended Lancaster Mennonite High School. Upon graduation, and despite his parents' protestations that he not seek higher education but stay on the farm, Yoder attended Eastern Mennonite College (now University) in Harrisonburg, VA, majoring in business administration. After receiving his degree he attended Millersville University of Pennsylvania obtaining the MBA. Yoder has made a fortune in the past decade not only with Yoder Dairies, but some would say by exploiting the Amish by selling "Amish made" products, investing in "Amish" restaurants and bakeries, and opening "Amish" attractions such as buggy rides and amusement parks. In turning his back on his conservative Mennonite upbringing, Yoder has been a staunch opponent of farmland preservation and what he perceives to be the "catering to the Amish" by government officials. Yoder tries to get the Amish to sell him their land because they are standing in the way of progress. Yoder considers his business associates in Lancaster County the Mennonite Mafia. He has two associates in his WNWA version of the Mennonite Mafia: Jacob Schmucker and Jost Schmucker. They are successful restauranteurs and innkeepers in Lancaster County and have been aggressively purchasing more and more properties in the past few years and like Yoder, living off of their Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. As Yoder says, "In Lancaster County, if you aren't in the Mennonite Mafia, we can make things very hard on you."

Yoder defeated Pike for the WNWA World Television Championship in November 2006 and has managed to cheat his way to several wins or get himself disqualified to hang on to the title as he did at February Free For All against Amos Beiler.

Yoder was named as one of the participants in the WNWA World Heavyweight Championship Tournament on February 27, 2007. He lost to Seamus Street in the first round.

Yoder lost the Television title to Amos Beiler at Memorial Day Massacre in a dramatic steel cage match.
