This year’s Geek’d Con at the Shreveport Convention Center just keeps getting bigger and better. Already announced for the event which will take place August 18th-20th, are Lou Ferrigno, Billy West, Joey Fatone, and many others. And, recently, Geek’d Con announced on their Facebook page that Wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan will be appearing at the event.
For you old school wrestling fans, you may remember Hacksaw wrestling in Shreveport a lot for Mid-South Wrestling in the late 70s and early 80s. For everyone else, Hacksaw is most famous for his runs in WCW and WWE. While Duggan never held any major titles in WWE, he is the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble, which went on to become one of WWE’s biggest annual events. In WCW, Duggan won both the US and Television titles.
While Duggan never got a big main event push or a World Title run, he was a huge fan favorite and had many memorable moments in the ring. His feud with the Ted DiBiase in 1985, pre-Million Dollar Man, is widely considered on of the best rivalries of its time. Which got him inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.
