Hacksaw Jim Duggan Slams TNA’s Decision To Hire Vince Russo

Nick Paglino

Steven Muehlhausen, host of the Pro Wrestling/MMA Radio Show in Chicago called The Fight Club Chicago, recently conducted an interview with Hacksaw Jim Duggan, during which he discussed his new book: "Hacksaw, The Jim Duggan Story." In the book, Duggan explains his feelings on Vince Russo by saying the following:

Egomaniac. I think he took a lot of credit for turning WWE around. That's how he got into WCW. Like he had saved the WWE from WCW. You know WWE is a lot like Mid-South was. You know Bill Watts would have Ernie Ladd, Bill Dundee and 3 or 4 other guys give him ideas. But, Bill Watts would make the final decision. Same with Vince McMahon, he makes the decisions up there. Russo was just one of the guys that gave him ideas to turn that company around. Of course him coming down to TNA is what I don't understand. If a guy takes WCW with unimaginable resources and flushes that down the toilet, why would someone at TNA give him the reigns down there? That doesn't make any sense.
