361. Bunkhouse Buck

Seemingly toiling around the regional territories of the South for what seemed like an eternity, Jimmy Golden got his taste of the big time in his mid 40’s by following his long time partner and friend Robert Fuller into WCW.  He was under Fuller’s (now Col. Robert Parker) guidance and was rechristened Bunkhouse Buck and was placed immediately into a high profile feud with Dustin Rhodes.  He was a key member of the Stud Stable and had a couple of years of mid card greatness with WCW.  He has recently resurfaced as Jack Swagger’s father in the WWE and it again gives reason to take a look back at what has been a very long and productive career.
