Hacksaw Jim Duggan spoke with WWE's The Bump about his Royal Rumble victory in 1988:
"I don’t think anybody was more shocked in the whole building than me that I won the thing, you know. I was a black horse, especially when I was one of the last three guys in there with Dino Bravo. The odds looked pretty bad there for a while, but thank goodness it worked out. You know, back then, it was a different business, too. We did that show, and then we all got in the car and headed to another show. We didn’t have the concept of how big it was becoming. Some of the guys did. Guys like Macho Man [Randy Savage], they had an understanding. We were in party mode a little bit. It was just another show another day," Hacksaw Jim Duggan said. (h/t Wrestling Inc.)
