Book Description

Offering professional wrestling fans a ringside seat into his adventurous life, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jim Duggan recounts for the first time key moments and legendary bouts both inside and outside the ring. Known to millions of enthusiasts as a charismatic patriot—with an American flag in his right hand and his signature two-by-four in his left—Duggan here reflects on his early life as a student-athlete on the Southern Methodist University football squad. Drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, Duggan shares how an injury-plagued rookie season curtailed his football ambitions and paved the way for a brighter career in professional wrestling. Rising to fame in the Cold War–era 1980s, Duggan immediately put himself at odds with anti-American “heels” and engaged in legendary feuds with some of the most legendary names in the sport, including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, and Andre the Giant. In this who’s who of top-tier wrestling, Duggan reveals not only the high points of championship bouts but also the low points that occurred far away from the TV cameras and screaming fans, including his fight against kidney cancer during the prime of his career. With each page peppered with Duggan’s charming wit, fans will find much to enjoy and discover about the man they once knew only as “Hacksaw.”

4.0 out of 5 stars HOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! 10 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Hacksaw Jim Duggan is a likeable character and person. I was not his biggest fan, but he was from the era I watched wrestling. This is an honest account of Jim Duggan's life and time in wrestling. He started out as football player, who joined amateur wrestling, then his first love Pro Football, but injuries forced him out, and he took up the role of a pro-wrestler. He used a number of gimmicks before he became Hacksaw. Which was very close to his own personality (they say the best gimmicks are extensions of people own personalities). Hacksaw has some great stories about life on the road. Brian Knobbs (shines in this book). The way this book differs from the other wrestling books is that Hacksaw really has not animosity towards professional wrestling or Vince Mcman (he does have an issue with another Vince). This book reads like a feel good success story in the grim world of Pro Wrestling. Hacksaw is honest about the pitfalls many pro wrestlers can and will face, and also celebrates the success that are possible. If you want a book backstage politics then don't buy this book, if want a story of someone with a successful career and life thanks to pro wrestling then buy and enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read for any wrestling fan 20 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is no Bret Hart book in the fact that it does skip over things and does not really go into any great detail but never the less I did find it interesting and enjoyed reading it. I did feel that they overdone it with the amount of input from Hacksaw's wife, sometimes it almost felt like every other page had a section with 'Debra says;' (think that was her name). Apart from that no complaints from me, definately well worth a read.
