A lover of liquor, Jumbo formerly worked as a bouncer at a bar, but was fired after beating a customer too severely. Afterwards he took a job as a wrestler's bodyguard. However, a fight broke out between Jumbo and the wrestler (for reasons unknown) which resulted in Jumbo knocking out his employer. He gladly replaced the wrestler subsequently and made his BWA debut.
Jumbo is a dangerous wrestler who enjoys bullying the weak and feels the highest ecstasy when he sees blood dripping from his opponents' wounds. He shows absolute obedience to The Scorpion and serves as both his loyal right-hand man and tag team partner, in which the two of them are collectively known as the "Silent Assassins" tag team.
His appearance in the series is based on and inspired by the late real-life wrestler Earthquake and he also has a very similar mohawk to Zangief's own. The jagged face paint patterns, girth, and fire-breathing also resembles the late real-life wrestler Mr. Pogo, who was a hardcore "heel" wrestler from the early '90s.
Although Jumbo has not yet appeared in a Street Fighter game, he is mentioned in a Secret File for Street Fighter III: New Generation as one of the participants of the Vale Tudo Eternal Fighting tournament, where he lost to Balrog.
Jumbo's favorite attacks consists of both the Giant Swing and Pancake Poison, after which he might slap his belly proudly. His deadly Bear Hug can knock even the stoutest of opponents down to size. Also, his Fire Breath and Poison Breath abilities surely made him rise above competitors on his ascent to the top.
