Bobby Fulton of The Fantastics was born James Hines on October 4, 1961 in Chillicothe, Ohio.
Bobby made his pro wrestling debut in 1977 using the ring name Jimmy Hines.
He was 16 years old at the time.
Bobby spent most of his early years in Ohio, wrestling and training with wrestlers like Lord Zoltan (Ken Jugan), Fred Curry, Bull Curry and Charlie Fulton.
He then moved north and started working in the Hart's Calgary territory.
There he was able to work with wrestlers like Bret Hart, The Dynamite Kid, The Cuban Assassin, Bobby Bass, Ross Hart, Bruce Hart, Giant Haystacks and Davey Boy Smith.
After his time there, he moved on to Jerry Jarrett's Memphis territory there he met Tommy Rogers and they moved to "Cowboy"Bill Watts' Mid South Wrestling, where the Fantasics (Fulton and Rogers) were born.
It was also there that the feud with the Midnight Express started.
The feud went from there to World Class Championship Wrestling.
