In the 1980s, the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) was at its peak as a driving force in the multimillion-dollar sports entertainment business. Stars of the WWF became household names, even with folks who didn’t follow wrestling…names like Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and Randy “The Macho Man” Savage were as well-known as anyone from Hollywood.
One of those stars was Jim Morris, aka Hillbilly Jim, from Bowling Green, Kentucky. Billed as a country mountain hick from Mudlick, Hillbilly Jim burst upon the WWF scene in 1984. With a toothy smile, baby face and big blue eyes sitting on top of his 6-foot-7-inch 300 lb. frame, complete with a scraggly beard, bib overalls and slouch hat to match, Jim’s outgoing personality and natural showmanship were a big hit with the fans.
