Nick Paglino

Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of theScore Television Network caught up with WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Highlights:

The other book titles discussed for his new autobiographical release "Hacksaw" and the tone of the book:
"(The book) is actually a more positive look at pro wrestling, a lot of guys are bitter. People see the movie 'The Wrestler' with that jerk Mickey Rourke and think we are all destitude degenerates. A lot of people have been successful in our business. I've been with my wife 28 years, my kids go to school, I live a normal life. tito Santana is the same way, Roddy Piper is the same way. I thought it was important to hear our side of the story too."

Being an avid chess player and spending time with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.

Did he ever wish he could have worked heel in WWE?

Taping "Prime Time Wrestling" in WWE, funny outtakes and a friendly beef with Hillbilly Jim.

Being inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame.

The origins of his trademark "HO-OH".

Singles out Dolph Ziggler (who reminds him of a young Curt Hennig), Sheamus and John Cena as talents he enjoys in WWE today.
