Outback Jack

Outback Jack

Peter Stilsbury is a professional wrestler, best known for his appearances in the World Wrestling Federation as Outback Jack, a West Australian bushman arriving to America to compete in the WWF. His LJN Wrestling Superstars biography card stated the following about Outback Jack : “A Native of Humpty Doo in the Northern Territory, Jack spent many years in the company of a tribe of Aborigines. These natives taught him many basic survival skills which have become very important to Jack and he now uses them to his advantage in the ring. He is known as a tough but fair man and he fears nothing, not even the dreaded saltwater crocodile.”

Outback Jack started his career in Australia wrestling as "The Mercenary" Sgt. Green and soon began touring in Canada with several promotions including Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling. He was brought into the WWF in the mid 80's in response to the mainstream popularity at the time of the Australian film Crocodile Dundee. He appeared in several vignettes hyping his debut by showing Jack in the wilds of the Australian Outback, drinking beer with cows, and came down to the ring to the famous theme song by Rolf Harris, "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport". His unique finisher The Boomerang (Enzui Lariat) was used to finish off many enchancment talent wrestlers such as Jose Estrada, Steve Lombardi, Barry O, Barry Horowitz and "Iron" Mike Sharpe. But he was quickly jobbed out to high level WWF superstars such as Ted DiBiase and Rick Rude; so Outback Jack left the company after only a brief tenure; his only notable feuds were with Frenchy Martin and Killer Kahn and he made one appearance on interview segment The Snake Pit with Jake Roberts.

Although his WWF career was brief, Outback Jack did have an LJN Wrestling Superstars action figure produced and distributed worldwide. In recent years Outback Jack has been involved in Highland Games Caber Tossing Events in Florida. (Credit: Wikipedia).
