WWE News: WWE Hall of Famer talks about his health, favorite WWE moments, & more

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan

What's the story?

One of the greatest WWE Superstars of all-time appeared at WrestleCon to talk about a variety of subjects that many wrestling fans wanted to know. The WWE Hall of Famer was genuinely touched and grateful to his fans for the overwhelming support.

In case you didn't know...

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan has been battling issues with his health for quite some time. As you may recall, Duggan battled and defeated kidney cancer in 1998 during his tenure with WCW. Duggan suffered a torn rotator cuff in 2013, which required outside from family and friends to provide funds for Duggan at over $10,000 for the surgery. Most recently, Duggan was placed in the I.C.U. in November 2018 over issues related to his heart. Duggan would eventually make a full recovery.

The heart of the matter

"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan conducted an interview with WrestlingINC correspondent Andy Malnoske to discuss various topics. These topics include how he is doing with his health and favorite WWE moments.

"My heart went out of rhythm. They tried to shock it from the outside which didn't work. So, they went in last week and did a procedure called an ablation where they went in and shocked my heart and got it back into rhythm. So, thank God everything is going good".
"My favorite moment was Wrestlemania III - 93,000 people - Pontiac Silverdome. To run down in front of all those people with a 2x4 to hit Iron Sheik and hit Nikolai Volkoff. Then standing in the ring with an American flag having 93,000 people chanting 'USA' is the thrill of a lifetime."
