So I'm watching the MSG card currently featured on Classics on Demand (6/14/87).  Outback Jack has a fairly short match with Jose Estrada in which he goes over.  It appears that he is still being presented as a relative newcomer at this point.

A few minutes later, I'm looking on The History of the WWE website, and I can see that he is already doing jobs for guys like Killer Khan a little over a week later in Indianapolis (6/23/87).

I had a freaking action figure of this guy.  Did he actually have any wins over anyone who wasn't a jobber?

They began airing vingettes of him back in November/December of 1986 and I seem to recall Hillbilly Jim introduced him for his in-ring debut.

I think his first job might have been to Killer Khan once he began spraying the mist and after he did it to Hulk Hogan on a Snake Pit.

The first time I saw Outback Jack was against Steve Lombardi on one of the syndicated shows.  It sticks out in my mind because it was one of the few times my father actually watched wrestling with me.  After the match, he said, "Well that guy's never gonna make it."

Yeah, it was stuff like that my dad would see and ask me why I watched this crap, he'd leave the room, and then something good would come on.

The series with Khan is where they gave up on him and started jobbing him out

Outhouse Jack as my best buddy used to call him

I am guessing they were trying to piggyback onto the success of "Crocodile Dundee" and have the "wrestling version" of that character?

Another good example to cite when people start gushing about what a promotional genius Vince is.

That's just because the company was distracted by the nationwide tour that was going to make Lex Luger into the new Hogan.

HAHAHA!  Priceless memory.  I have many like this, but the difference is, my Father enjoyed wrestling and we'd watch it together with my brother.  But many many times my Dad played the cynic and pretty much say the same thing, "that guy will never make it."
