Jim Morris [1952 - Present]
Jim Morris made his professional wrestling debut in 1975 in Memphis and later started wrestling under the ring name "Harley Davidson." In 1984, 6'7", 320-pound Hillbilly Jim appeared in the WWF as an overall-clad wrestling fan from Mud Lick, Kentucky, who was trained by Hulk Hogan. His theme song was "Don't Go Messin' With a Country Boy." After he suffered a knee injury in 1985, Hillbilly Jim introduced his "kinfolk," Uncle Elmer and Cousin Luke, to the WWF. Hillbilly Jim also enjoyed a memorable appearance in WrestleMania III when he teamed up with Little Beaver and The Haiti Kid in a mixed tag team match to defeat King Kong Bundy, Little Tokyo and Lord Littlebrook. Today, Hillbilly Jim hosts the weekly "Hillbilly Jim's Moonshine Matinee" program on Sirius Satellite Radio's Outlaw Country channel 63.
Lanny kean aka cuz jr. Was my vest friend. He died in January 2009 in Indiana.
I met Hillbilly Jim when i was stationed at fort Campbell KY and he came to my house to take me out to lunch. I was THEN and still AM to this day one of your biggest fans.A great wrestler and man.IT was really nice meeting you.
Hillbilly Jim is one of the kindest people I ever met. He always took the time to be attentive to his fans no matter where he was, or who they were. I remember this crazy mother mother had her son at the airport at 5:00 in the morning just to see the wrestlers and Hillbilly Jim took the time to buy the child breakfast. Remember that Jim? Pretty in Pink
"Cousin Luke" was actually Gene Petit, who worked for many promotions from the '70s through the '80s.
Remember when cousin Luke was in the WCCW as the Mongol.
To anonymous: Lanny Kean was actually Cousin Junior - sorry I don't remember who Cousin Luke was.
Cousin Luke (Lanny Kean) died a number of years ago (sorry I don't have the date).
While appreciating wrestling for what it was, entertainment, I gotta say that HJ had to be one of the strongest wrestlers ever. There are certain things you just cannot fake, and I have seen some matches where HJ was lifting some HUGE guys over his head. I think it was the Big John Studd challenge, where he was gonna pay the first wrestler to lift him over their head, and HJ almost had him, but Studd wriggled out of it. That would be a good clip to add if I am remembering it right.
AND IT KEEPS GOING AND GOING AND GOING.........
HA ARE YOU EVER GOING TO WRESTED IN ANY MORE ORG MISS NOT SEE YOU ON TV.
i would like to see cousin luke. what happen to him
