Jerome Saganovich, better known as Jerry Sags, is an American former pro wrestler, best known as one half of the tag team The Nasty Boys.

Jerry Sags started his career in the American Wrestling Association as a referee in 1985. In 1986, he formed a tag team called The Nasty Boys with Brian Knobbs and wrestled in the Tennessee territory until they moved to Florida Championship Wrestling, where they won five Tag Team Titles from 1988 through 1990.

In 1990, they went to the NWA's Jim Crockett Promotions which had been purchased by Ted Turner and would be renamed WCW before they left a few months later. They feuded with Rick and Scott Steiner over the U.S. Tag Team Titles but could not defeat them. In early 1991, they went to the WWF where they were managed by Jimmy Hart and won the World Tag Team Titles from The Hart Foundation before feuding with and losing the titles to the Road Warriors.

They left the WWF for WCW in 1993 and were quickly placed with manager Missy Hyatt, who led them to the World Tag Team Titles. She left them and they went on to feud with Harlem Heat, The Blue Bloods, and the team of Dick Slater and Bunkhouse Buck.

In 1996, they were tricked by the nWo into thinking they were going to become members but were attacked as soon as they received their shirts. Sags had been injured previously and he had to retire due to this injury.

Sags returned to wrestling in 2001 as a trainer and with Knobbs as The Nasty Boys to wrestle in the short-lived X Wrestling Federation and he retired again after it folded in 2002. Jerry Saggs is now living in Tampa Florida near his friends Brian Knobbs and Hulk Hogan.
