Rowdy Roddy Piper was a guest on the Scott & BR Radio Show in San Diego (AM 1090) this morning. He mostly plugged his current comedy tour, but there were a few wrestling-related moments:
*When asked about the current crop of wrestlers, Hot Rod remarked how proud he was of this generation being able to tell good stories in a PG manner. “It’s very different from the business I started in, and that’s good for the kids,” he said.
*Piper subscribes to the 93,000 figure at Wrestlemania.
*Piper said he enjoys getting calls from the WWE to shoot angles, but at this point in his career wants to keep them memorable.
The announcers had not kept up with the product in years, and their questions focused on the Hogan/Andre/Ric Flair types. But Hot Rod was quite gracious and thanked all of his fans (five generations worth, he said) for letting him entertain.
A good little interview that is up on the XX 1090 Website.
