Before he became the lovable buffoon in McMahonland, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan was one of the toughest competitors ever in Mid-South rings. As a heel, he was a member of the Rat Pack with Ted DiBiase and Matt Borne. Duggan was involved with one of the biggest angles in Mid-South history when dressed in a gorilla suit for a tv taping during the Louisiana State Fair, he helped DiBiase defeat Junkyard Dog in a Loser Leaves Town match, which led to the famous Stagger Lee angle. Duggan would soon become a fan favorite, however, and his long-running feud with Skandor Akbar and Devastation, Inc. would make him an All-American hero. Many may not remember, however, that Duggan came into the area as a bounty hunter for Akbar. Enjoy these photos and clippings of "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, "a man's man" as Bill Watts would so often say.
