* OhCrap: Had a noticeable one when during his feud with Mr. America (HulkHogan in a knockoff CaptainAmerica mask) tried beating an already down and out America with a flag pole, only for Zach Gowan to jump in the way. When Roddy tried to pull Gowan off, he instead pulled off Gowan's prostic leg. Piper could only meekly place the leg down, and flee the ring with what little dignity he had left.

* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Like most heels, he was a completely different person than his stage persona. And a very devoted husband and father.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: His contribution to ''The Wrestling Album'' was originally called "Fuck Everybody." Due to the WWF's family-oriented direction, he had to change it to "For Everybody." The word "ass" was also replaced with "trash" on two occasions.

* TenMinuteRetirement: ''Many'', starting with his first, after ''[[Wrestling/WrestleMania WrestleMania III]]'' in 1987. Every time you'd thought he's gone for good, there go the bagpipes.

Piper was a big reason why the WWF (now the Wrestling/{{WWE}}) got so huge in the '80s and was one of its most popular villains. Hulk Hogan was considered a good guy back then and was one of Piper’s biggest rivals. Known for his kilt, deafening bagpipe music, and big mouth, Piper feuded with nearly everyone in the business, along with some celebrity talents like Music/CyndiLauper and Creator/MrT. He was also the host of '''All-Star Rock 'N' Wrestling Saturday Spectacular'', a preview lineup of CBS kid's shows with bumper segments of Piper lording it over a studio audience.

* CurbStompBattle: In one of Piper's first matches ever (in Winnipeg in 1970), Larry "The Axe" Hennig completely squashed Piper in about ten seconds. Piper was a mere 16 years old at the time.
