— Here is Hacksaw Jim Duggan, speaking to Arda Ocal about a variety of topics. Hacksaw talks about how he likes Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus, whether he wishes he could have worked as a heel in WWE, some of his experiences doing WWE’s Prime Time Wrestling show, the origins of his trademark shout and more. Below is a comment he made about his autobiography and its tone: “(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 destitute 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.”
