WWE Hall of Famer ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan announced he’s now “officially cancer free” in a video shared with his fans.
“I just wanted to share with everybody the great news I just received that they checked my bones, and that came out clear. The surrounding tissue came out clear. The lymph nodes came out clear. So thank God I’m cancer free.”
The 67-year-old has experienced multiple health issues in recent years, which included undergoing a heart procedure in March 2019 and once again being hospitalized six months later.
Duggan said that he was making health improvements in January, revealing he’d lost 40 pounds in adherence with advice from his doctor, while also confirming he had retired from in-ring competition at the time.
Duggan’s legendary wrestling career included notable runs in the WWE, as well as World Championship Wrestling, Mid-South Wrestling and other promotions.
