“Rowdy” Roddy Piper recently discussed his return to Raw along side pop singer Cyndi Lauper in a WWE.com Exclusive.
“Cyndi, oh, we have a long history. We weren’t always on the same side, but to be honest with you, it was a true pleasure,” said Piper.
Piper also addressed the comments he made on Raw in regards to the Rock & Wrestling being the saving grace of WWE.
“If it wasn’t for the Rock & Wrestling connection at that time being so big on TV — you know, they were all cheering [Hulk] Hogan and booing Piper — I don’t know if wrestling would have gotten the huge launching pad that it did,” Piper explained.
“It’s very surreal to think that you were apart of the beginnings of it but I was and I’m proud of it.”
Piper also was asked to address Raw’s 1000th episode which will be coming up, July 23rd.
“The fact that a wrestling program called Raw could be the longest running television show in the history of television, bar nobody — nobody can now say we’re not on the map,” stated Piper. “We’re for real. I have worked all my life to make that happen, along with a lot of other guys that have worked just as hard or harder.”
