WWE’s ‘Hacksaw’ Duggan talks golden age of wrestling and more
"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, the legendary WWE wrestler and Hall of Famer who proudly carried a 2x4 with him to the ring, has stories to last a lifetime. After so many great years in the WWE and the wrestling business, Jim shared some of those memories with us during an off-air interview recently.
I have been a wrestling fan since I was a young boy. I was enamored with the story lines and the larger than life personalties of WWE's wrestlers like "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Hulk Hogan, Jake "The Snake" Roberts and of course, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. So when I had the opportunity to sit down with Jim and discuss his life in the "squared circle," we went through everything from his career to even who Duggan would root for in today's generation of wrestlers.
One of the things that I always admired about Hacksaw is that unlike some other wrestlers, you didn't read about him getting into trouble, either with the law or with drugs or alcohol. Many wrestlers of that generation either succumbed to narcotics abuse or wound up in some form of legal trouble. Jim somehow managed to stay away from that and he even touched on that during our discussion. "It's been such a good business for me. So many folks hear the horror stories about Jake the Snake Roberts or Scott Hall, I've been with my wife for over 30 years and I've never had to go to rehab. But overall it's been a great business for me," Duggan said.
