Lesnar Talks WWE, 2012 WWE PPV Schedule, Duggan


— Brock Lesnar recently gave an interview while promoting UFC 141 in which he discussed negotiating with WWE for WWE ’12, as well as whether he could return to WWE. “I was recently asked to be on a WWE Legends video game, and when I did it rumors sprouted I was coming back,” he said. “I know (pro wrestling’s) always there. If the organization sees business to be made off me, I don’t think anyone in their right mind would turn down money, do you?”

— WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan’s autobiography has an official release date. Titled Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story, it will be released on April 1st, 2012 which is WrestleMania weekend. The book is co-written by Scott Williams and has the following official synopsis: “Offering professional wrestling fans a ringside seat into his adventurous life, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jim Duggan recounts for the first time key moments and legendary bouts both inside and outside the ring. Known to millions of enthusiasts as a charismatic patriot—with an American flag in his right hand and his signature two-by-four in his left—Duggan here reflects on his early life as a student-athlete on the Southern Methodist University football squad. Drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, Duggan shares how an injury-plagued rookie season curtailed his football ambitions and paved the way for a brighter career in professional wrestling. Rising to fame in the Cold War–era 1980s, Duggan immediately put himself at odds with anti-American “heels” and engaged in legendary feuds with some of the most legendary names in the sport, including the Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, and Andre the Giant. In this who’s who of top-tier wrestling, Duggan reveals not only the high points of championship bouts but also the low points that occurred far away from the TV cameras and screaming fans, including his fight against kidney cancer during the prime of his career. With each page peppered with Duggan’s charming wit, fans will find much to enjoy and discover about the man they once knew only as “Hacksaw.”
