Just like Scott Hall and Jake Roberts did to fund their surgeries and recovery, Hacksaw Jim Duggan is seeking support from his fans through a fundraiser on Indiegogo.com to help him pay for shoulder surgery.
The WWE Hall of Famer is suffering from a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and is in desperate need of surgery. “Without this surgery Hacksaw is severely limited in his range of motion and his ability to perform in the ring, which to this day is still his livelihood,” says the summary on the page.
Hacksaw is hoping to raise $6,500 to completely fund the shoulder surgery. In return of a donation, Duggan will be sending out perks including 8×10 autographed photos, a personal phone call, a t-shirt, a Skype video call, and one night stay at DDP’s Accountability Crib with DDP. All perks will be fulfilled in April 2014.
$1,425 have been raised as of this writing with 60 days left in the campaign. You can check out the campaign page and an emotional video from Hacksaw at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hoooooo-support-an-american-hero
