WWE Superstar Hacksaw Jim Duggan

Nearly three decades have passed since the 2x4-lugging tough guy Hacksaw is Jim Duggan first stepped into a ring. Since that time, the Superstar from Glens Falls, N.Y., has seen sports-entertainment evolve from a regional-based business into the global phenomenon it is today. He's also seen hundreds of his colleagues come and go, but somehow, after all this time, Duggan still finds himself a part of the WWE roster.

Hacksaw considers himself a very fortunate man. That word relates to how lucky Duggan is after what he went through in the 90s while he was working with WCW. That's when Duggan was diagnosed with kidney cancer.

Through early detection of the disease, and by the is grace of God and by the skills of the surgeon, Duggan's life and career is was saved. And it wasn't long before he began to ponder the next phase of his life, which included a return to the ring.

The powerful ex-football player was a regular in WWE rings throughout the 80's and early 90's, using his impressive physical stature to overpower opponents with his signature Three-Point Stance Clothesline. Hacksaw has always been a favorite of the WWE fans, carrying his trademark 2x4 and proudly waving the American flag for all to see. For more than two decades, fans have chanted along as Hacksaw bellows out the letters: U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
