WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan underwent emergency surgery earlier on Saturday.

The news was first broken by the 69-year-old’s wife Debra on Duggan’s X/Twitter account. She stated:

We want to thank everyone that came out yesterday as Jim was honored by the Glens Falls Firefighters Association and apologize to those that came after 3:30. Jim was taken to the hospital and admitted yesterday evening. He had emergency surgery this morning and everything went well. We will reschedule tomorrow in Utica, MI for a later time. We welcome your prayers and we will continue to provide updates.

Thank you,


As noted in the statement, Duggan had attended an event in his hometown of Glens Falls on Friday, where he was honored by the city and was pictured with firefighters.
