Duggan's storied career
WWE fans who watched the product way back in the late 1980s must be well aware of Duggan's stint as a WWE Superstar. He signed with WWE in 1987 and made his first major appearance at WrestleMania 3, which was also his PPV debut. Soon after, Duggan kicked off a feud with fellow WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff. Duggan's character was of an American patriot, and he was one of the most beloved babyfaces in the late 1980s.
Duggan is also the winner of the very first Royal Rumble Match, which was held in 1988. He won the match after eliminating One Man Gang. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011 by Ted Dibiase. He made a bunch of WWE appearances around the time, participating in the Royal Rumble Match in 2012. Duggan also teamed up with Santino Marella on an episode of SmackDown to take on Primo and Epico, who were the WWE Tag Team Champions at the time.
