James "Jimmy" Golden (born August 1, 1950) is an American professional wrestler, who is better known as Bunkhouse Buck.

Golden has many relatives in wrestling: his cousins are Robert & 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 and being trained by his father began wrestling with NWA- Rocky Top. His son also had several tag matches with his cousin Eddie.


Jimmy Golden started wrestling in 1968 in his father's (Billy Golden) territory in Alabamamarker. During the 1970s, he wrestled under the name of Roy Lee Welch. 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 1970 in Australia for Jim Barnett.

Among their feuds during this time were The Rock 'N Roll Express, Steve Armstrong & Tracy Smothers, Tommy & Johnny Rich and Kerry & Kevin Von Erich. He also teamed with Dennis Hall as "The Avengers" in the early 1970s.

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.

In 1994, Golden followed Fuller to 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.
