Hillbilly Jim was given the gimmick of a member of audience ‘Big Jim’ who was a regular

fixture of wrestling shows and who then tried his hand in wrestling. ‘Trained’ by Hulk Hogan,

he was introduced as the character of Hillbilly Jim. Hillbilly Jim was a simple-minded,

shaggy-bearded Appalachian hillbilly who always dressed in overalls.

He would often team with Andre ‘The Giant’ or members of his family who were introduced

to the show during a time when he was injured.

Hillbilly Jim remains one of the most beloved characters to have ever wrestled in WWE.

Although he never won any championship and lost as many matches as he won, he was an

integral part of the WWE product. The ultimate babyface, Hillbilly Jim represented the WWE

audience in the ring. He was the symbol that anyone could become a wrestler given an

amount of focus and the right kind of training.

Jim's feud with King Kong Bundy is one of the biggest highlights of his career.

Hillbilly Jim was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018.
