Episode 121: From the Archives – Rowdy Roddy Piper, Part 2

“Why am I still alive? A question I ask myself a lot… God takes care of fools and babies.”

We go back into the archives this week for part 2 of Brian’s July 2006 interview with Roddy Piper!

Turn back the clock and hear Roddy talk about the infamous Lord Alfred Hayes rib, the making of They Live, his many fallen comrades, Hulk Hogan’s acting chops, the time he and Ric Flair got stuck in Santo Domingo, and much more.

It’s Brian’s personal favorite interview from his seven years with WWE, and he’s excited and proud to finally share it in its entirety.

Episode 120: From the Archives – Rowdy Roddy Piper, Part 1

“If you have any creativity in you, and you have enough balls, there’s nothing that you can’t do in that squared circle… And that’s freedom.”

Listen to Roddy as he expounds on the psychology of being a heel, talks about the time Jonny Fairplay tried to kill him, remembers the infamous MSG bagpipes rib, and so much more.
