"Rowdy" Roddy Piper is best known for his work ...
-- Michelle Beadle, an ESPN TV co-host who has had WWE wrestlers on her ESPN podcast, recently talked about her return to watching wrestling after tuning out for more than 10 years. According to Beadle, she got back into wrestling 2 to 3 years ago. "Everyone that I used to watch is basically making a comeback – The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Triple H - I guess wrestling is kind of like a soap opera. You can be gone for a few years but turn it on again and pick right back up, missing nothing. There are some storylines that are cheesy, and some that you find yourself invested in for one reason or another, I can't really explain it."
