Peter Stilsbury (4 February 1958), best known for appearing in the World Wrestling Federation as Outback Jack from 1986 to 1988. Stilsbury started his career touring in Canada with Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling. He was brought into the WWF in response to the mainstream popularity at the time of the Australian film Crocodile Dundee. Wearing an Australian bush jacket,he appeared in several vignettes hyping his debut by showing him in the wilds of the Australian Outback—specifically, the Northern Territory. In addition, as part of the storyline, he claimed to have learned survival skills from the Aborigines.

Stilsbury made his WWF debut in November 1986, as Outback Jack. His wins mainly came over jobbers, however, Outback Jack also defeated well-known superstars such as Nikolai Volkoff and former WWE Champion The Iron Sheik.

He soon became a jobber himself, losing matches to high-level superstars such as "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase and Rick Rude. On the 7 May 1988 episode of WWF Superstars of Wrestling, Outback Jack teamed with Brady Boone and Steve Blackman in a loss to The Islanders; this was the only match in which The Islanders competed as a team of three, as they were joined by new Islander Sivi Afi. Outback Jack feuded with Frenchy Martin, and the two had matches featured on the 4 May and 25 May 1987 episodes of WWF Prime Time Wrestling. Outback Jack won both matches.

In May 1988, Outback Jack left the WWF after feuds with Frenchy Martin and Killer Khan. He also made one appearance on the interview segment The Snake Pit with Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
