Congratulations go out to Hacksaw Jim Duggan, who last night, it was announced, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before WrestleMania on April 2nd.
Hacksaw was at FirstEnergy Park in June of 2009 to sign autographs and pose for pictures, such as the one shown on the right (I think you could sneak a fastball buy him on the inside corner, but that’s just me).
He joins a line of wrestlers that have appeared at FirstEnergy Park:
King Kong Bundy
Ted “The Million Dollar Man” DiBiase
Jerry “The King” Lawler
George “The Animal” Steele
Those noted in bold are already the Hall of Fame and King Kong Bondy and Mick Foley figure to be certain entries.
This year, we’ll have the Iron Sheik and Nickolai Volkoff on June 11th.
On a side note, here is a hilarious interview given by the Million Dollar Man on the Shore Sports Network last year. And below is Hacksaw’s entrance music.
