People ask me why I would meet some celebrity multiple times. Once you meet them, what else is there to do?
I have met many celebrities multiple times, because I like them. If the celeb was a jerk, I might try once more, but that would be about it. When the celebs are nice and I like them, I am more likely to revisit them at future conventions.
Such is the case with Hacksaw Jim Duggan. We have met him several times and it is always fun. Hacksaw, like a lot of celebs, recognizes us and seems to give us a litle extra when we see him.
Sometimes these multiple visits allow the celeb to become comfortable with you. You build a bit of a relationship. I am not saying I am "friends" with the celebs. I know the lines. Still, I think I am pretty friendly with many of them.
With trust comes perks. Duggan gave us an interview last year because he likes us. That interview can be found at On the Beat with Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
I did write that Hacksaw likes us. You might not get that at first glance at the picture below. Hacksaw looks to be squeezing the life out of me. Wow, he has some big hands.
Hacksaw actually wanted to have a choking chain of him choking me and Matt choking him. I don't think Matt could get his hands around Hacksaw's thick neck. I can only imagine how big he was when he played college football. He is a big, thick dude (and probably without the use of enhancers).
Hacksaw gave us that little extra at C2E2 this year as usual. This is why I keep going to see him. I don't know where he will pop up next, but if it is near me, you know I will be there.
