The "Rowdy" Roddy Piper Show launches blog
The "Rowdy" Roddy Piper Show is a two hour "tell it all" one man standup performance where he'll have you laughing and crying at the sametime. Now added to the show Mean Gene Oakerlund.
We have bookings for more then 30 shows across the USA. This is theplace to come for show information.
Roddy a WWE era Hall of famer, when being inducted to the Hall Of fame by16 timesworld heavy weight champion Rick Flare said and I quote " The Greatestentertainer in the history of professional wrestling bar none Rowdy Roddy Piper". Hot Rod as said by Mean Gene Oakerlund in the the Hall of fame footage "Was one of the few wrestler to lay claim to being the most hated and the most beloved wrestler in WWE wrestling history.
"Just when you think you got the answers, I change the questions!" was his motto and a weekly interview segment called "Piper's Pit" where he would irritate his guests to the point where a feud would follow. The most infamous "Pipers Pit" incident occurred when Piper cracked Jimmy Snuka over the head with a coconut. Later on, Piper's Pit was used as a vital set-up for the Hulk Hogan vs Andre The Giant showdown at Wrestlemania III.By that time, the "Hot Rod" had turned face and had a spectacular match of his own at WMIII against Adrian Adonis, who wound up bald at the end of the match! You knew the Hot Rod was a tough cookie when he boxed Mr.T at Wrestlemania II and made T look absolutely ridiculous in the process.
Piper was the ultimate rebel of the wrestling world, black balled and out of professional wrestling for refusing to take a dive for 17 1/2 years. Piper has shared the ring with everyone from Andrea the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Muhammad Ali,and a 650 lb Kodiak Bear named Victor.
