Scary news from the world of pro wrestling this weekend as WWE Hall of Famer, Royal Rumble winner, and notable American patriot Hacksaw Jim Duggan was hospitalized and underwent multiple emergency surgeries.
Duggan’s wife Debra later clarified that the surgeries were to due to a, “severe infection,” and that he’d be in the hospital for a few more days to make sure he’s okay. The hospitalization forced the 65-year old Hacksaw to cancel his scheduled autograph appearances at a Legends of the Ring convention in New Jersey. You can see Debra’s message for Hacksaw’s fans below:
“Hello everyone, this is Debra. This picture is hours after his second emergency surgery in 24 hours. He had a severe infection but we think we got all of it although he will be in the hospital for a few more days. Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers.”
We wish Hacksaw a speedy recovery, and are sure he’ll be back on the convention circuit sooner rather than later. Death’s not going to mess with a guy who can hit him with a wooden plank or pop him in the jaw with taped fists while screaming at him about the United States. Get well soon, tough guy.
