Jim Barrell started wrestling in 1982 as Pvt. Jim Nelson in
Sgt. Slaughter's "Cobra Corps" in the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions. He frequently teamed with Don Kernodleand he feuded with Porkchop Cash.
In 1984, he went to
Alabama's Southeast Championship Wrestling and continued his feud with Cash.
In 1985, he went to the
American Wrestling Associationas Boris Zukhov from the Soviet Union, taking on Chris Markoff as his manager and challenging AWA World Champion Rick Marteland AWA Americas Champion Sgt. Slaughter.
In 1987, he formed a tag team with
Soldat Ustinovunder Sheik Adnan El Kassey's management. The pair won the AWA World tag team title that same year. However, Zhukov left the AWA for the WWF while he was still one half of the tag team champions (the storyline being that Wahoo McDaniel chased him out after a brutal chain match). As a result, former tag team title holder Doug Somerswas brought in to team with Ustinov, losing the titles to the team of Jerry Lawlerand Bill Dundee.
Upon entering the WWF, he formed a team with
Nikolai Volkoffknown as The Bolsheviks. They teamed for over 2 years, but never rose above mid-card status. By mid 1990, Zukhov was wrestling in singles competition, being used primarily as a jobber. He even feuded with his former tag team partner when Volkoff received a push as a face that same year.
Zhukov then left the WWF for the independent circuit until he retired in 1996.
Zhukov often makes appearances for many independent promotions in
Virginiaand North Carolina.
