Hacksaw Jim Duggan's Survivor Series Picks
"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan makes his Survivor Series picks
Nov. 22, 2005
"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan is a Survivor Series veteran and was in the first five events. In fact, Duggan participated in the first-ever Survivor Series match in 1987 and captained the 4x4's in 1989. Duggan is back in great shape and even helped defend the honor of the WWE Legends at Taboo Tuesday, making Rob Conway and Tyson Tomko retreat.
Trish Stratus vs. Melina for the Women's Championship
Hacksaw's Prediction: Trish Stratus
"That will be a favorite, especially with me. When I went to a couple of the RAWs and Taboo Tuesday, Trish really impressed me. The two may be very closely physically matched, I think the fans will be cheering for Trish which will give her the extra something she needs to win the match."
Eric Bischoff vs. Theodore Long
Hacksaw's Prediction: Eric Bischoff
"Eric Bischoff might be one of the least popular people in professional wrestling - not only with the fans but with the wrestlers, too. Long does a great job outside the ring. Bischoff has his background in athletics and karate and is also known to pull things out of his hat. I wouldn't be surprised to see others get involved. I'm going to go with Bischoff, but I wish Long the best."
John Cena vs. Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship
Hacksaw's Prediction: Kurt Angle
"If you have your own hand-picked referee, especially someone like Daivari, that's hard to beat. I know John is a fan-favorite and will have the crowd behind him. They'll probably be chanting USA, and I know better than anyone that gets the blood flowing, so he'll be on top of his game. But it will be tough to take Angle with his own referee."
Ric Flair vs. Triple H in a Last Man Standing Match
Hacksaw's Prediction: Ric Flair
"I've wrestled both men. I've wrestled Flair many, many times, even back to the old Mid-South days. I've watched his whole career and have more respect for him than just about anyone in the business. I know what's in his heart, and I think that's what it will take to win this match. Even though Triple H is bigger, stronger and younger, I think what's inside Ric Flair's heart is what will carry the day. I think Ric Flair will be the last man standing."
Team RAW vs. Team SmackDown, 5-on-5 Classic Survivor Series Match
Hacksaw's Prediction: Team RAW
"My prediction is the RAW team. I captained a team in 1989, the 4x4's, and I know how important it is to have a good team captain. And I think Shawn Michaels is the ultimate team captain. He's been around and paid his dues. I think he can really hold the team together. Plus, the size they have on that team will be hard to beat. And with Batista going through the car - the guy's a gorilla and I've never seen anyone like him - but sometimes you can't make up for injuries."
