WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan arrived on social media on Wednesday with great news — he’s officially cancer-free. After being rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery back in mid-October, Duggan confirmed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and battling it for several months. Duggan confirmed in mid-November that he was back home, but would need to cancel all of his appearances for the remainder of 2021. He stated in his latest video message, “Hi everybody, I just wanted to share the I just received that my cancer was all encapsulated inside my prostate. They checked my bones, that came out clear, the surrounding tissue came out clear, the lymph nodes came out clear. So, thank God, I’m cancer-free.
“This is my second bout with cancer. Twenty years ago I had kidney cancer, now prostate cancer. Folks, remember, early detection saves lives. Merry Christmas and ho, ho, Hooooo!”
