FAIRHOPE, Ala. – The Wrestling Collection, a division of 16 Creative, Inc., has signed WWE Hall Of Famer Hacksaw Jim Duggan for exclusive brand representation. The signing marks the first project launch since the company was officially announced on May 16th. Hacksaw joins his longtime friend and frequent opponent the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase as part of a quickly growing roster of legendary wrestlers.
“Hacksaw Jim Duggan is someone I grew up watching my father wrestle, and also someone I have wrestled myself,” said Ted DiBiase Jr, Partner & Chief Executive Officer. “It’s truly an honor to partner with Jim to help cement his legacy as an ICON in our business.”
The industry has quickly taken notice of the improvements that The Wrestling Collection has accomplished in regards to the Ted DiBiase brand. From a completely redesigned merchandise line and collection of autographed memorabilia to his wildly successful Million Dollar Coffee, DiBiase has experienced an unexpected career resurgence that nobody saw coming!
With Hacksaw Jim Duggan, you can expect a similar approach as The Wrestling Collection tactically recreates his brand to develop a brand-to-fan experience designed for his specific fan base.

“Hacksaw Jim Duggan is an ICON in professional wrestling and the perfect addition to the TWC roster! We couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming opportunities with his brand,” shared Jared Ashley, Partner & Chief Product Officer.
“I’ve spent almost 2 decades in the entertainment industry and I have to say that helping these legends re-create their legacy is the most fun I have had in years!” noted David Keller, Partner & Chief Technology Officer. “We are honored to add Hacksaw Jim Duggan to the TWC family.”
The past year has held countless surprises for all and today’s announcement promises to uphold the ‘new normal’ as DiBiase and Duggan have also opted to join forces with their newest venture, a 2024 campaign!

About Hacksaw Jim Duggan:
A true red-blooded American, the tough but lovable big guy is best known with a 2×4 slung over his shoulder and a red, white, and blue flag gripped tightly in his hand. Often going up against underhanded foreign villains, Duggan would always get the crowd behind him by inspiring massive chants of “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” that would shake the rafters and intimidate his opponents. For more than four decades, “Hacksaw” has defended America’s honor in the ring and enjoyed distinction as one of the most recognizable Superstars in the world. Still carrying his 2×4 and waving Old Glory proudly, “Hacksaw” is a bona fide legend in the ring and truly deserving of his spot in WWE’s Hall of Fame class of 2011.
