Meet WWE Hall of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan in Portland, Maine
Hey, tough guy! Guess who’s coming to Maine in the U-S-A?? Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
The WWE Hall of Famer will be taking pictures with fans and signing autographs and Maine Vintage Toys in Portland. He’ll be appearing on Sunday, October 22, from 12 to 3 p.m.
According to an announcement on store’s Facebook page, fans can pay $40 for a picture, $40 for an autograph, or $60 for a picture and autograph combo. The store is located at 650 Main Street in South Portland.
Hailing from Glens Falls, New York, Duggan was a staple of WWE programming in the 1980s & '90s, teaming with Sgt. Slaughter and feuding with the likes of the Iron Shiek, Earthquake, Dino Bravo, and the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase (who also has an upcoming appearance at the store.)
A former football star in college who was drafted to the NFL, Duggan incorporated his gridiron background into his matches by using a three-point stance to signal his trademark finisher. He is also famous for his chants of “U-S-A” and bringing a 2x4 to the ring.
And it wouldn’t be a Hacksaw appearance without his patented “Hooooooooo!”
In later years, Duggan took part in reality shows such as the WWE Network’s Legends House, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011. Recently, Duggan has battled back against health challenges, and is a cancer survivor.
According to Maine Vintage Toys, no advance tickets are needed, and fans can arrive early and wait in line for the meet and greet. All you need to bring is a big thumbs up.
