Growing up I found myself getting really deep into the pro wrestling phenomena. It was the time when all the legendary wrestlers were in the ring. Everyone from Andre the Giant to The Ultimate Warrior to the one and only Hulk Hogan. I would beg my parents to buy me action figures so I could reenact famous wrestling matches in my bedroom.

For anyone who shared a similar childhood as I did, take a minute to watch the following video. It pretty much sums up what pro wrestling meant to a lot of us kids.

Each wrestler had their own style and charisma. From the darkness that the Undertaker brought to the ring, or the feeling you got when someone like Sargent Slaughter stomped out of the tunnel. They are all legends in our minds.

Just recently one of my favorite wrestlers was spotted right here in Montana. Im talking about the 2x4-wielding madman known as Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

The pro wrestling hall of Famer spent some quality time with his wife vacationing in Big Sky Country.

According to Wikipedia

James Edward Duggan Jr. (born January 14, 1954), better known by his ring name "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, is an American retired professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE on a Legends contract, whose best-known character is a patriot who swings a 2x4 at opponents, cries "Hooo!" continually with a thumbs up and leads chants of U-S-A! In the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now known as WWE), Duggan won the first Royal Rumble match in 1988.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.
