Hillbilly Jim

Hey Scott,
With the Legends House bringing him back in the spotlight, I've been thinking a lot about Hillbilly Jim lately. The guy was huge, extremely over and pretty athletic. How come he never got any sort of a real main event push? I know he drew a bunch in the house show circuit. Thoughts? I thought he got a pretty damn good push for a guy named "Hillbilly Jim".  He was in the Hulk Hogan cartoon and got intro'd as Hulk's protege originally.  He did OK for himself before the injuries got him for good.
