WWE Hall of Fame legend Rowdy Roddy Piper did an interview and discussed who he would like to wrestle if he could have one last match. According to PWS on Tuesday, there are two wrestlers that Piper would come out of retirement to wrestle. The first is Vince McMahon and the second is Vince Russo, and Piper emphasized that he would do both of those matches for free.
Piper wanted to appear at “Wrestlemania 30” and hold a major Piper’s Pit episode where he could finally end his feud with Hulk Hogan once and for all. The idea was shot down by the WWE, who chose to go with a big moment with Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin instead. The reason for that segment is clear, as those were the three biggest names in WWE history.
While Piper has made random appearances in the WWE here and there, it seems there are always problems between him and the company. He was around to help put over The Shield, and it resulted in a great one-on-one promo between Piper and Dean Ambrose. He did get the chance to finish his feud with Hulk Hogan when he and Paul Orndorff came face to face with Hogan and Mr. T at “Wrestlemania 30,” but it was all a backstage skit.
As for Vince Russo, one of the most infamous moments in TNA Impact Wrestling history was when Piper came to the ring and cut a worked-shoot promo where he accused Russo of killing Owen Hart. He also pointed out how Russo destroyed WCW. Russo said in a later shoot interview that Piper was out of line for making those comments, which took him by surprise. It is clear that Roddy Piper has no lost love for Vince Russo.
The Roddy Piper interview also included a lot of talk about memories of his career. Among the highlights, Piper talked about being stabbed three different times, his memories of painting his body half black for “Wrestlemania 3” and teaming with the late Adrian Adonis early in his career.
