Hacksaw Jim Duggan recovering after successful emergency surgery

Hacksaw Jim Duggan’s Twitter

WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan has dealt with a number of health conditions over the last few years. In March of 2019, he underwent a procedure to address an irregular heartbeat. In September of that year, he had two surgeries within a span of 24 hours because of an undisclosed infection.

But last year, the 67 year old said he’d lost 40 pounds and was in much better health. Unfortunately, Wednesday morning (Oct. 20) his wife Debra shared that something had sent him back to the hospital for emergency surgery.

Several of Duggan’s contemporaries shared his wife’s calls for well wishes and prayers. Thankfully, the next news was good. First from Jake Roberts:

Them Debra shared an update of her own. You can almost hear “HOOOO!” through the picture.

Hacksaw’s retired, and believed to be on a WWE Legends deal. Here’s hoping he’s feeling well enough to show up on Raw or SmackDown as part of that contract sometime soon, and that he’s swinging a 2x4 over his head for years to come.
