YMMV: Roddy Piper
  • Badass Decay/Dork Age: His time in WCW, also his 2003 WWE run on SmackDown!.
  • Crazy Awesome: Essentially his character whenever he was a face.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: After the famous incident during SummerSlam 1989 where he mooned Rick Rude, Piper asked Gene Okerlund during an interview "What's a Scotsman wear under his kilt?" "His shoes!"
  • Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming: His famous WrestleMania VIII match with Bret Hart, where, after teasing a heel turn (and wielding a ring bell at that!) he just couldn't bring himself to screw over his old friend. Bret ultimately wins, but the two embrace afterward in a very rare show of respect from Piper.
    • Piper was voted to be Ric Flair's partner at Cyber Sunday 2006, but had to be withdrawn from storylines shortly afterward when it was discovered that he had cancer. Piper made a full recovery and credits the fans' vote as being what saved his life.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: His, let's say, unusual choice of attire for his WrestleMania VI match with Bad News Brown. Unfortunate Implications ahoy.
    • Not helped by André the Giant allegedly deciding to switch out the solution to get that stuff off Piper with water after the match.
