Jim Duggan Shoots On Mickey Rourke, Promotes New Autobiography

- Arda Ocal reporting:

Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of theScore Television Network caught up with WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. Highlights:

The other book titles discussed for his new autobiographical release “Hacksaw” and the tone of the book
“(The book) is actually a more positive look at pro wrestling, a lot of guys are bitter. People see the movie ‘The Wrestler’ with that jerk Mickey Rourke and think we are all destitude degenerates. A lot of people have been successful in our business. I’ve been with my wife 28 years, my kids go to school, I live a normal life. tito Santana is the same way, Roddy Piper is the same way. I thought it was important to hear our side of the story too.”

    No reason to call Rourke a jerk, just for taking part in the movie. Maybe Duggan's got heat with him for something else?

      He said something once about crossing Rourke in a hallway with a bunch of his people. Rourke walked by without even acknowledging Duggan or giving him much room to pass. I forget all the details.
