The Stud Stable was a professional wrestling heel stable in World Championship Wrestling, Southeast Championship Wrestling and the Continental Wrestling Association.

History[edit]

The Stud Stable was first formed by "The Original Tennessee Stud" Ron Fuller in Southeastern Championship Wrestling in the early 1980s. His version included Fuller's cousin Jimmy Golden, a young Arn Anderson and the masked Lord Humongous (not Sid Vicious, but the original Lord Humongous). They feuded with "Mr. Olympia" Jerry Stubbs, Austin Idol and Bob Armstrong, as well as Armstrong's sons, Brad, Scott and Steve.

The next version was created by Ron's brother Robert Fuller in the mid-late 1980s.[1] Between 1986 and 1989 in the Continental and Memphis areas, members included Fuller, Golden, Dutch Mantel, Wendell Cooley, Detroit Demolition, Tom Prichard, The Flame, Cactus Jack,[2] Brian Lee and Gary Young. They wrestled in the Continental and in the CWA promotions and feuded with the Armstrong family, Cooley and The Nightmares in Continental, and with Jerry Lawler and Jeff Jarrett in Memphis.

Another version of the Stud Stable was formed in Smoky Mountain Wrestling that contained Robert Fuller, Jimmy Golden, and Dutch Mantel. The Stud Stable feuded with The Rock 'n' Roll Express and the Heavenly Bodies. They started out as pure heels, but became tweeners, feuding with both heels and babyfaces. The group disbanded when Robert Fuller went to WCW to become a manager in 1993.

The last version was created in World Championship Wrestling when Robert Fuller was known as "Col. Rob Parker." He formed the stable in 1994 with Arn Anderson, Terry Funk, Golden as Bunkhouse Buck, and Meng, who was Parker's bodyguard.[3]

This stable feuded heavily with Dusty and Dustin Rhodes until late 1994 when Funk left and was replaced by Dick Slater. They have also feuded with Brian Pillman.[3] The Blacktop Bully was also briefly a member. In early 1995, Meng left (eventually to join the Dungeon of Doom) and Anderson went to rejoin Ric Flair. The Stud Stable feuded with Harlem Heat over the WCW World Tag Team Championship in which they won. They were also feuding because of a love/hate relationship between Parker and the Heat's manager, Sister Sherri. Parker eventually dumped Slater and Buck for Martel and the Stud Stable was finished.
