James "Jimmy" Golden (born August 1, 1950) is an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his tenure with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) under the ring name Bunkhouse Buck. He also appeared in WWE as Jack Swagger Sr.
A member of the Golden wrestling family, he is the son of Billy Golden and the father of Bobby Golden. Golden's cousins are Robert and Ron Fuller, and he is the uncle of Eddie and Evan Golden. His grandfather is Roy Welch and his uncle is Buddy Fuller.
Jimmy Golden started wrestling in 1969 in his father (Billy Golden)'s territory in Alabama. He started teaming with his cousin Robert Fuller in the 1970s and last teamed together on the independent circuit in 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. The Stud Stable under Robert Fuller performed in the CWA in Memphis in 1988-1989.
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 1982, Golden briefly worked for Joe Blanchard's Southwest Championship Wrestling. He joined the newly founded Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1991. He competed at the Volunteer Slam tournament on May 22, 1992 in Knoxville for the company's heavyweight championship, but was eliminated by Robert Gibson in the first round. He went on to feud with Gibson, which turned into a tag team feud when Jimmy's partner Robert Fuller joined the promotion while Ricky Morton arrived to join Gibson. This rekindled the Stud Stable versus Rock 'n' Roll Express feud from the 1980s. Golden continued to wrestle for the promotion through 1993.
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 1997, 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, Golden became the Tennessee Mountain Wrestling Heavyweight Champion.
Golden married Patricia Ward in the 1970s. He trained to their son, Bobby Golden, in wrestling with TMW.
