Bunkhouse Buck (James Golden, 1994-1997)

  • Ain't No Rule: His Finishing Move was often a big boot. Bunkhouse was smaller than most wrestlers who use the big boot, but he wore cowboy boots that were said to make the big boot more damaging than it would have been - however there was no rule against wearing cowboy boots in the ring.
  • Ascended Extra: Most of his time in WCW was spent as a jobber-to-the-stars, but in '95 he had a brief tag team title reign alongside Dick Slater.
  • Badass Longcoat: Subverted - he wore a pale tan duster to the ring that made him look more slovenly than badass.
  • Good Ol Fisticuffs: The commentators always made it a point to mention that fistfighting Bunkhouse was a bad idea.
  • The Pig Pen: Noted to literally stink, mainly because he wore winter underwear all the time.
  • Tag Team: Never did much by himself, but in addition to his run with Dick Slater, he had some quasi-successful tag team runs with Arn Anderson and Mike Enos.
