“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan was admitted to a hospital and had to undergo emergency surgery according to his wife Debra.
The WWE Hall of Famer was being honored by the Glens Falls Firefighters Association on Friday when afterwards he fell ill and was transported to a hospital in the evening. The surgery was done yesterday morning.
“We welcome your prayers and we will continue to provide updates,” his wife Debra said on X.
September 8 was “Hacksaw Jim Duggan Day” as proclaimed by Mayor Collins and Duggan was inducted into the Glens Falls Firefighters Association as an honorary member for his work in the 70s as a summer firefighter. Immediately following the ceremony, Duggan did a meet and greet with fans and raised $2,500 for the GF Nation Fund.
Duggan had several bouts with cancer over the past couple of years although it’s not clear why he was admitted to a hospital this time around.
