– Hacksaw Jim Duggan has posted a blog on his WWE Universe page and he tells a story about getting into a confrontation with Mickey Rourke during WrestleMania weekend in Houston. Duggan wrote:
“BUT, my one high spot of the night, I went up to the top floor to check on my girls and on the way back downstairs I saw three guys coming toward me in the hallway. The top floors of the hotel have security, so I figured they must be someone I knew. As we get closer, I step to the right and two of the other guys do also, but one guy takes up the whole hallway, even though he is not all that big. I don’t have on my glasses, so I can’t really tell who he is, but anyway, as we pass I say ” you got enough room there Mack” and keep walking. The other guy stops and says “What did you say to me?” So I told him again, but with a few adjectives. He says ” You don’t talk to me that way” now, as I start to focus in on the guy, I can see it is Mickey Rourke. The other two guys step in and break up the war of words. But, I was disappointed to see someone like that, act like he was a big shot. After of years of meeting real Movie stars, musicians, sports stars and other true big time celebrity’s, I was not going to let that ruin my night.”
