James "Jimmy" Golden (born August 1, 1950) is a third generation American professional wrestler, who was known as Bunkhouse Buck between the 1970s and 1990s. He also appeared in 2010 as Jack Swagger Sr.
Golden has many relatives in wrestling: his cousins are Robert and Ron Fuller, his father is Billy Golden and his uncle is Buddy Fuller, and his nephew is Eddie Golden. His grandfather is Roy Welch. Also, Golden's son Bobby Golden followed in his father's footsteps, after being trained by his father he began wrestling for NWA Rocky Top.
Jimmy Golden started wrestling in 1969 in his father's (Billy Golden) territory in Alabama. He started teaming with his cousin Robert Fuller in the 1970s and they still team on the independent circuit as of 2005. Golden also wrestled in the early 1970s in Australia for Jim Barnett.
Jimmy Golden and Robert Fuller were members of the Stud Stable, managed by Ron Fuller in Southeastern Championship Wrestling, later Continental Championship Wrestling, throughout the early 1980s. He was heel most of the time, while his cousins occasionally were face. Pensacola, Florida and Mobile, Alabama were his stomping grounds in the early 1980s.
Among their feuds during this time were The Rock 'n' Roll Express, Steve Armstrong and Tracy Smothers, Tommy and Johnny Rich and Kerry and Kevin Von Erich. He also teamed with Dennis Hall as "The Avengers" in the early 1970s.
In 1994, Golden followed Fuller to World Championship Wrestling (WCW) where Fuller was the manager "Col. Rob Parker" and wrestled for him as Bunkhouse Buck. He feuded mainly with Dustin Rhodes and then teamed with Dick Slater to win the WCW World Tag Team Titles. By 1999, he had left WCW for the independent circuit again.
Golden appeared on the July 16, 2010, episode of WWE SmackDown, portraying the character of Jack Swagger's father, and Swagger abandoned him to be chokeslammed and tombstoned by Kane. He returned on the September 3, episode of SmackDown, reprising his role as Jack Swagger's father, and was again left by Swagger to be attacked by Montel Vontavious Porter.
On August 30, 2011 in New Tazewell, Tennessee, Jimmy Golden became the Tennessee Mountain Wrestling Heavyweight Champion.
Golden trained his son Bobby Golden in wrestling with TMW. He married Patricia Ward in the 1970s.Finishing moves
