Hacksaw Jim Duggan On Contracts Changing Wrestling, Steve Austin



WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan recently spoke with SportsTownChicago.com, here are the highlights:

Duggan on how contracts changed the pro wrestling business: “Yeah, I think that was when the business started changing. Contracts started getting involved. Guys started worrying about their own personal image and how they would move on from one company to another. That was the change from the old days when you would pass the torch if you were leaving. You did the job for the guy.”

Duggan on Steve Austin: “The guy did the job for you. That was the first time I saw that where Austin was worried about taking care of himself and went down with the bogus injury shortly into the match. I had words with him right after it happened and the little bit right then. Of course he went on to have an outstanding and unbelievable career. Obviously, the guy was very talented, not my favorite person to say the least.”
