- WWE has published an article with Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Tito Santana, Hillbilly Jim and Harley Race discussing the first-ever televised Royal Rumble match. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan discussed his other favorite Royal Rumble.
“It was the 2009 Rumble, and I was one of the later guys coming out. I got a good pop, as a lot of the guys from my generation do. Fans remember us, which we are grateful for. I came through the curtain and stormed to the ring and, of course, one of the first guys I roll into and am nose-to-nose with is The Undertaker. When he first came into WWE, I actually contested a lot of his first matches, against him and Paul Bearer. So here I am, face to face, with the big Deadman. I give him a shot, and a shot, and a real big shot and he went down like a big tank hit him. Then, of course, Big Show came down and tossed my a** out, but I shined there for a good couple of minutes.”
