VIDEO: Roddy Piper Speaks Out – Piper’s Pit, WrestleMania


Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of The Score Television Network spoke with WWE Hall Of Famer, Rowdy Roddy Piper (@R_Roddy_Piper). Here are som ehighlights…

On Piper’s Pit at WM 5 With Morton Downey Jr: “He ( Morton Downey Jr ) got sprayed with the fire extinguisher. They had two fire extinguishers before, they were suppose to bring one out, and emptied half of it, and I switched them. So I had the full one. I sprayed him with it, and he couldn’t breathe. He crawled and got my shoulder against my ankle. So I had the fire extinguisher , and I lifted it up and was gonna bring it down on him, and I could hear Gorilla Monsoon yell “No Roddy!!”

On Being Painted For His WM 6 Match: “I had this match, I came back. The stuff they had painted me with Vince McMahon had made special. When I broke a sweat it wouldn’ t come off. There was a special clear solution to take this special black off. When the lady started rubbing my check it started bleeding. Andre the Giant and Arnold Skaaland dumped the solution to rub the stuff off. So, I went out in Toronto that night painted half black. The way I got it off, I had to sit in the sauna when I got home, took me about a month of rubbing it all off.”
