It Came From YouTube: Meet Outback Jack and watch him shave.

17 Submitted by on Wed, 04 February 2015, 02:00

Meet Outback Jack. He’s so very.. um… Australian.

Watch him tie up a kangaroo.

Then, watch him shave!

Whoa, baby! Can you handle this much excitement, Crappers?!

This was the WWE’s attempt to cash in on the Crocodile Dundee craze of 1986.

Nobody particularly cared, and he didn’t last long.

But he did get his own LJN figure.

P.S- “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport” is one of the most annoying songs in the world.

    This seems more like a tourist ad rather than a wrestling vignette. Also, Jack’s very laid back, which is somewhat accurate of us Aussies, but doesn’t make for an interesting wrestling persona.

    “Watch me tie a Kangaroo down sport and then I’ll shave his privates. Watch me tie a Kangaroo down sport and I’ll fill up the pouch.”

    Is that a Queen parody made just for him? I wish they would have just used Men at Work, would’ve been slightly less irritating

  4. Sean Bateman says:

    His only WWE Video appearance was in that If You Only Knew music video on the Piledriver Video Cassette, which Vince has to STand Back and Crank It Up!!!

    If they had called him Outhouse Jack instead of Outback Jack, they might have been able to take this in a more successful direction. Not to mention that a guy named Outhouse Jack could have turned out to be the patron saint of Wrestlecrap.

      Given Vince’s kinship towards scatalogical humor don’t give him any more ideas for it. He’ll be sitting on a stool in a brown shirt feeling still pooped out from the Rumble and then this idea would plop into his mind.

    Sadly, Men At Work had broken up the year before. And they released their third and final album which mostly consisted of session musicians cuz the original members could no longer stand the sight of each other. They got too big too fast, and then burned out after only six years as a group. I know that has nothing to do with Jack, but it happened around the same time so I thought I would mention it. And when MAW were together, they were pretty damn good.

    Another not so succesful Australian in the WWE was Nathan Jones (perhaps best known for being paired with the undefeated Undertaker to take on Big Show and A-Train at WrestleMania 19, but was pulled from the match, making it a handicap match for the Undertaker). Why didn’t they sign Magnus Samuelsson instead? :-)

    Is this the guy who gave us the famous Botchamania “windjammer” clip?

  9. Doc75 says:

    kinda sad to find out the poor guy iz blind nowadayz

  10. Doc 902714 says:

    Given that Vince is so up to date with movies of a bygone era and creating superstars loosely based on those movie personas i.e. Razor Ramon –> Scarface, and Waylon Mercy –> Max Cady from Cape Fear and Paul Burchill –> Capt Jack Sparrow. You’d think that Outback Jack should’ve debuted sometime during the Attitude era or 10 years after the original Crocodile Dundee movie.

    • Vince B says:

      Razor Ramon was actually Scott Hall’s idea, and Vince hadn’t even SEEN Scarface. That’s just plain worse.

      Scott also came up with Sting’s Crow gimmick.

  11. Anonymous says:

    This guy and Corporal Kirschner [sp?] were two gimmicks that MacMahon obviously believed were going to take off BIG TIME yet both went NOWHERE. Kind of a shame, because I think they were both moderately decent ideas in theory even if they didn’t work out in practice.

    Trust Vince to use the version of the song with the ‘let me abbos go lose lew’
