Wrestling / "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan

Go To

"As far as I can tell his character is an unfrozen caveman they tested the Captain America serum on."

James Edward Duggan Jr. (born January 14, 1954), better known as "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan is a Ring Oldie who had his most memorable run in WWE in The '80s, known for his goofy demeanor and his relentless patriotism. He was rarely seen without an American flag in one hand and his trusty 2x4 in the other (and at one point, he even wore a crown to the ring after defeating King Haku in mid-1989). While he never won any titles in WWE, he's still known as a major figure in the Rock & Wrestling era, with the distinction of winning the inaugural Royal Rumble. He also spent some time in The '90s wrestling in WCW, where he made his PPV debut at Fall Brawl 94 by beating "Stunning" Steve Austin for the WCW United States Heavyweight Title in about 30 seconds, after Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat had forfeited the belt to Austin due to a career-ending injury. He made a brief comeback to WWE several years later, and is still frequently seen on the independent circuit. He was inducted into WWE's Hall Of Fame in 2011.


He is a former 2x Mid-South/UWF World Tag Team Champion, 1x w//Magnum T.A. and 1x w/Terry Taylor, a 1x and the last-ever Louisiana Heavyweight Champion, a 1x and the last-ever Mid-South North American Heavyweight Champion, a former IWC (International Wrestling Cartel in Western Pennsylvania) Tag Team Champion w/Scotty Gash and a former IWA Japan World Heavyweight Champion.note 



  • Back in Mid-South/UWF he and Ted DiBiase had a major feud.
