Hacksaw Jim Duggan

The Baltimore Sun published an interview with “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. Here are some highlights.

His favorite WrestleMania memory: “My first Wrestlemania was Wrestlemania III. That was the one with 93,000 folks. I didn’t have a match, but I ran down with the 2×4 and hit Nikolai Volkoff and the Iron Sheik. I had 93,000 people chanting USA, and that was the thrill of a lifetime.”

His favorite WrestleMania memory that didn’t involve him: “At that same Wrestlemania, I was in the back watching when Andre did the job for the Hulkster. That was one of the largest moments in the history of the business, and one that I will never forget.”

Being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011: “It’s a great honor. You always want to be remembered. Being recognized by the WWE is the pinnacle of our profession. It’s something that everybody aspires to. A lot of guys say that they don’t care, but they’re the ones not getting the call. It was a beautiful night. My family was there, and some of my good friends. It was just a really special night.”
