WWF Accolades: Introduced the high-flyer style of wresting.

Jimmy was an amateur Hawaiian bodybuilder in the 1960s and despite winning numerous titles (Mr. Hawaii, Mr. North Shore) he entered professional wrestling due to the financial uncertainty of bodybuilding. Originally cast as a bad guy under the direction of Captain Lou Alabano he eventually became a crowd favorite due to his high-flying acrobatics. Despite coming close numerous times he was never actually a WWF champion, but his mark on the sport (and the chests of his opponents) is indelible.
