James J. "J.J." Dillon (born James Morrison on June 26, 1942) is a retired American professional wrestler and manager.[1]

He is best known for being the strategic leader of the original Four Horsemen that consisted of Nature Boy Ric Flair, Tully Blanchard, Arn and Ole Anderson. He is most remembered as a manager in pro wrestling. He guided many wrestlers to singles and tag titles in the NWA. From 1989 until 1997 Dillon served as a front office executive for the WWF before returning to a similar, albeit on-camera role with WCW.

In 2009, he made a one-night appearance at Deaf Wrestlefest 2009 to team with "Beef Stew" Lou Marconi and "Handsome" Frank Staletto in a six-man tag team match against "Franchise" Shane Douglas, Dominic Denucci and Cody Michaels.[2][3][4]

On March 31, 2012 he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Four Horsemen.
