Hacksaw Jim Duggan Reportedly Brought To Hospital

Hacksaw Jim Duggan was reportedly hospitalized today, according to PWInsider.

The Hall of Famer was brought to the hospital with undisclosed medical issues and has had to pull out of some scheduled appearances this weekend.

Duggan has had a few health scares recently, getting sent to intensive care back in South Carolina in November of last year. He had been hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat. This March, he went in for a planned heart procedure to help fix the problems detected on November.

Duggan had previously spoken about his November health scare, saying that his heart was out of rhythm and that he had needed a procedure known as an ablation where they attempted to fix the irregularities.

Duggan has been in relatively good health since then, making several appearances during wrestling events, including during the latest WrestleMania weekend.
