Berserk Button: Basically everything as he was Crazy Awesome but if you really wanted to tick off Hot Rod, you'd say that the kilt was a skirt.
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.
Cool Old Guy: His gimmick now is the awesome old-school guy that comes in to teach the young punks a lesson. Some examples:
Teamed with Ric Flair to defeat the Spirit Squad (represented by Kenny and Mikey) for the WWE World Tag Team Titles at Cyber Sunday on November 5, 2006.
Teamed with the Highlanders (Rory and Robbie) in a six-man-tag to defeat 3/5 of the Spirit Squad (Johnny, Kenny and Mikey) on the November 6, 2006 Raw.
Defeated The Miz with a rollup and a fast three-count courtesy of special referee Alex Riley in 1:08 on the June 13, 2011 Raw.
Crossover: His feud with Carlito Colón started in WWE but was settled in WWC with Piper pinning Colon. If you only watched WWE you might not know they had a feud in the first place since their promotion of the fact two of their contract workers go to another company, continuing a storyline started on WWE television, was bare minimal.
Roaring Rampage of Revenge: On the September 27 (taped September 16), 1986, WWF Superstars, Piper's Dragon "Cowboy" Bob Orton Jr. and "Magnificent" Don Muraco turned on Piper, siding with "Adorable" Adrian Adonis's "The Flower Shop," tore down the "Piper's Pit" set, and injured Piper's leg in the process. On the October 4th show (taped the same night), Piper came out with a crutch and destroyed the set of "The Flower Shop." This ultimately led to the hair vs. hair match between Piper and Adonis at WrestleMania III.
Would Hit a Girl: Today, it's very much averted. He's gone onto the WWE's programs to host special Piper's Pits specifically to scold heel wrestlers who hurt women the previous week. But this was not always the case, of course. In 1984-1985, during the height of his highly volatile, crazy heel persona, and when the "Rock 'n' Wrestling Connection" era was in full swing, Piper (in Kayfabe) hated rock music diva Cyndi Lauper so much he tried to attack her, without provocation, many times. He actually did assault her and her then-boyfriend David Wolfe during an infamous in-ring promo at New York City's Madison Square Garden (the setup being American Bandstand's Dick Clark presenting an award to Lauper and "Captain" Lou Albano for their (real-life) work with the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation). The incident brought Piper's feud with Hulk Hogan (an avowed friend of Lauper's) to a new level, and set up "The War to Settle the Score," aired nationally via MTV, where Piper's allies — "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and "Cowboy" Bob Orton — threatened to seriously hurt Lauper, if not worse.
