Billy Jack Haynes (born William Haynes, Jr.) started wrestling in 1982 after serving a prison term for armed robbery. He started wrestling as Billy Jack in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) territory but had to change his name when Tom Laughlin (who starred in the movie Billy Jack) threatened to sue him. He added his real last name to the gimmick and continued to work as a face. In 1986, Haynes went to the World Wrestling Federation and feuded with "Macho Man" Randy Savage over the intercontinental title and then with Hercules Hernandez over who was stronger and more muscular. He went back to Oregon in 1987 and wrestled in their independents until he showed up in World Championship Wrestling as the masked Black Blood in Kevin Sullivan's stable. He soon left WCW and went back to the PNW territory where he was a heel this time and feuded with Steve Doll. He showed up next in the United States Wrestling Association in 1995 and retired in early 1996. During his stint in the WWF in the late 1980s, Haynes usually wore yellow and green - the school colors of the University of Oregon - and his trunks and boots often sported the outline of the state of Oregon.
