He is signed with World Wrestling Entertainment in a Legends contract. His best known character is that of an American patriot, which sees him use a 2x4 length of wood as a weapon, the battle cry "Hooo!" and the U-S-A! cheer.

Duggan has claimed to have wrestled in all 50 American states and in Australia, Austria, the Bahamas, Belgium, Bermuda, Canada, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, Germany, Guam, the Netherlands, Italy, Japan, Poland, Spain, and Switzerland.
