Better known by his ring name The Honky Tonk Man, Roy Wayne Farris was born January 25, 1953 and is an American professional wrestler. Currently working on the independent circuit, he previously worked for World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation (WWF). He is best known for his first run with WWF, where he held the Intercontinental Championship for a record 64 weeks, and losing it to Ultimate Warrior in just over 30 seconds. He is the cousin of professional wrestler and color commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler and first cousin once removed to Brian Lawler.

Originally pushed as a face wrestler with an Elvis impersonator gimmick, Honky soon cut a series of promos that aired on the WWE's syndicated programming asking fans for a "vote of confidence." The results came back negative, and it was not long before Honky became a cocky heel and took on Jimmy "Mouth of the South" Hart as his manager. Hart was billed as "The Colonel" for Honky's matches, a reference to Col. Tom Parker.

Honky's first major feud came against Jake "the Snake" Roberts, who was in the midst of a face turn. The feud intensified when Honky attacked Roberts on his talk show set, The Snake Pit. According to Roberts, Farris was supposed to hit him with a gimmicked balsa wood guitar. Roberts believes Farris accidentally grabbed a real, non-gimmicked guitar and smashed it across Roberts' back, injuring him, and starting him on his dependence of prescription pain medication. However in an interview for World Wrestling Insanity, the Honky Tonk Man disputed Roberts' assertion saying "That's not true and, in fact I attribute most of that to Mick Foley, who wrote about it in his book, and Jake, who lied about it."[citation needed] During the feud, at WrestleMania III, Honky grabbed the ring ropes to score a tainted win; afterward, Roberts cleared the ring of Honky before he and Alice Cooper attacked Hart with Roberts' python, Damien.
