Awesome: Roddy Piper
  • His legendary shoot on Vince Russo at NWA TNA #63, September 17, 2003.
  • Remember that really cool line from They Live! during the bank scene? Roddy Piper ad-libbed that line, taking it from a list he had made of ideas for promos.
  • Roddy Piper shows just how Crazy Awesome he is by smashing a beer bottle into his own face.
  • Spraying Morton Downey Jr. with a fire extinguisher at Wrestlemania V. The lesson here, kids, is that you do not blow cigarette smoke into Rowdy Roddy Piper's face.
  • Smashing Jimmy Snuka with a coconut and knocking him through the Piper's Pit set; a villainous Moment Of Awesome for Piper.
  • Messing with the fans doing "WHAT" chants during his Wrestlemania XXI interview with Steve Austin ("Try to keep up with me!"). Plus, he fires off this great line:
    Piper: I was pissin' Vince McMahon off when the red on the back of your neck was diaper rash, buddy.
