Gordon Solie Interview
GUEST: “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan
Favorite “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan tells Gordon Solie that he is disappointed he was knocked out of the TELEVISION TITLE TOURNAMENT but vows that when the champion is crowned, he will be going for it!
Duggan’s interview was then interrupted by the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and Virgil who is carrying a briefcase.
DIBIASE: Duggan you proclaim to be a ‘tough guy’ and I’ve seen you wrestle. You are. Recently the Million Dollar Corporation lost our enforcer in The Mountie and we’re looking for someone to fill the position. It comes with a very generous benefits package.
Virgil opened the suitcase to reveal stack upon stack of $100 bills. The crowd implored Duggan to refuse. Duggan pondered for a few minutes.
DUGGAN: Mister DiBiase…will you give me a couple of days to think about it?
DIBIASE: I am a man who is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it. But in this case I’ll make an exception.
DiBiase snaps his fingers and Virgil snaps the briefcase closed and locks it. He sets in on the interview desk in front of Duggan and the two men leave. Duggan looks at the case, picks it up and leaves the interview area without a further word.
