Black Jack Mulligan (born c. 1940) is an English former professional wrestler. He was a contemporary of such British wrestlers as Big Daddy,[1] Jim Breaks, Tony "Banger" Walsh, Giant Haystacks and many others on the UK scene.

Early life and education[edit]

A Geordie from Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England, he was born Laurance Coulson to a working-class Tyneside family.

Career[edit]

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, he could be seen at the usual British wrestling venues sporting his trademark cape, long "Ayatollah"-style beard and scowl. Mulligan played the bad guy[1] with relish and usually lost to the preening good-guy wrestlers. One famously broke both ankles after vaulting over the ropes and landing badly on a row of chairs when being pursued enthusiastically by the massive Big Daddy.

Mulligan wrestled once or twice a week and could occasionally be seen on the television series World of Sport on a Saturday afternoon. The pay was not great though and he supplemented his income by working as a boiler stoker and did the early morning rounds to institutions such as schools, hospitals and old folks homes.

Despite his bad-guy image (as was the case with other bad-guy wrestlers such as Breaks), Mulligan and his family sometimes fostered children from local children's homes.[citation needed]
