Roddy Piper

Highest Rated: 85% They Live (1988)
Birthday: Apr 17, 1954
Birthplace: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Took up the bagpipes at age 6 and played in bands regularly. Found pro wrestling at age 15 when his boxing coach needed a fill-in for a card he was promoting in Toronto. Roddy's bagpipe band played him into the ring, so the announcer called him Roddy the Piper. Donned a kilt as part of his ring persona and participated in a half dozen wrestling organizations, but made his name as the villain to Hulk Hogan in WWE (then WWF), a rivalry that helped spark the first WrestleMania in 1985. Hosted the weekly talk segment "Piper's Pit" on WWF coverage. Starred in the John Carpenter cult film They Live (1988). Inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 by Ric Flair, in a class with Hogan and Roddy's tag-team partner Paul Orndorff. Campaigned with the anti-bullying group Stand For The Silent, honoring victims and raising awareness to the issue.
