Default Jim Duggan says Wrestling Doesn’t Need Beer-Swilling and Middle Finger Gestures

http://www.wrestlesite.com/wwe/jim-d...nger-gestures/

Promoting his appearance this Saturday at Marvin Vinson Center in Clarksville, Arkansas, for Traditional Championship Wrestling’s “Holiday Homecoming 2″ event, WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan say he’s happy to work for a promotion that caters to families.


“The name sums it up,” said Duggan. “Traditional Championship Wrestling. There are no obscene gestures. It’s the wrestling people grew up with. You cheer the good guys and you boo the bad guys. You come to a TCW event and you’ll have more fun than you’ll have at a movie. It reminds me of the old Mid-South [Wrestling].”


The legendary grappler prefers this type of product to that of the WWE’s raunchy “Attitude Era,” which routinely showcased disrespectful, beer-swilling anti-heroes who defied authority.


“I think the pendulum swung way off during the WWE era,” says Duggan. “I think wrestling should be family entertainment. We don’t need those obscene gestures. It’s for kids. I’ll be screaming ‘hooooo’ and ‘U-S-A’. I don’t think you need someone out there drinking beer and giving someone the bird.”

He's right. All wrestling really needs are good workers and solid booking. We also don't need 60 year old Hacksaw Duggan parading around doing the same old schtick. It's all a matter of opinion in the long run.

Most people say wrestling doesn't need washed up, 2x4 swinging, senile grandpas living in the past

Guys got a point. Whether you prefer a family-friendly product or not is purely a subjective issue, but to say you can't have a good kid-friendly product is mind numbingly stupid.

Exactly, and that Raw was rated PG for majority of its 20 years.

But there's a difference between kid friendly and PG. Kid friendly stuff is like G rated(and below), family friendly is PG.

The only negative thing about PG in WWE today, is that WWE treats it like G rating instead of PG(Vince McMahon even said it himself), so people bashing WWE today cause of PG, are stupid, cause WWE doesn't act like it's PG.

Duggan forgets that beer-swelling and middle finger gestures actually saved wrestling. People were sick of Duggan's view of wrestling

To be fair, it's his opinion, and we should respect it. He is a HOF'amer.

Duggan may be the most boring uninteresting, over guy in the history of wrestling
