Alex learned at an early age that there was no truth to the adage that “you can be anything”. From a small town an hour away from the hardly bustling city of Fargo, he’d always known his options were limited. Maybe if he worked really hard, he could be a supervisor at the body shop in seven or eight years. He’d heard of plenty of peers making it out, but if they had happy endings, those never made it back to Hillsboro.
What he had also learned from an early age is that he’d have to fight to get what he wanted from his limited options. And through the years, he got better at it. As he got older and bigger and stronger, he knew that while the most important part of a fight was intimidating the other guy into backing down before it started, the second most important was putting an end to it quickly.
Was there a place in the world for someone who could make a trade of their toughness and their willingness to stand face to face with a stranger and give them everything they had until one man stood tall, and the other was forced to live with their shortcomings? Of course, son. Even Hillsboro, North Dakota has television. You can have your fireworks, your well oiled pecs, your long blonde hair. “All Business” Alex Bruder has your number. You’d best hope you never have to learn that yourself.
