WWE Hall of Fame legend Rowdy Roddy Piper has been talking up his chances in the ring this past week after three years in wrestling retirement.
Age hasn't stopped Roddy Piper's desire to wrestle in the WWE again before he truly retires for good, and he says there are still two opponents that he would come out of retirement to compete against.
One of them is Vince Russo, but the other is a little more epic and would make for an excellent match. The other contest, which he reveals he would do for free, would be against WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.
In fact, Roddy Piper says he would compete against either McMahon or Russo for free, such is his desire and desperation to get one of those matches scheduled at some point in WWE's future.
Piper had wanted to feature at WrestleMania 30 so he could finally end his long-running feud with Hulk Hogan. But WWE decided against that proposal, with Vince McMahon and the writers creating huge moments for The Rock, Hulk Hogan and Stone Cold Steve Austin instead.
Piper did manage to end his feud with Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 30 in the end, but the whole incident was just a backstage skit. Not quite the substance that Piper wanted.
The 60-year-old has also had a spat or two with Vince Russo over the course of his career, with Piper accusing Russo of killing Owen Hart and destroying WCW. So a match between Russo and Piper would also be a classic.
Piper is not the first person to say Russo killed Owen Hart and he's not the last, with Owen Hart's brother providing a similar shocking assessment in the last week.
Piper has been through his fair share of trauma during his wrestling career as well, and in a recent interview he explained the many different incidents he's had to endure.
"I’ve been stabbed 3 successful times, one of them right near my heart. I’ve been electrocuted, I’ve survived cancer," said Piper.
"I’ve had a broken neck; I broke it again and didn’t know, have 7 screws in there right now. I’ve been married for a long time which is a rarity in this business. I can’t figure out how to beat her, she keeps kicking out."
