Issues with Rowdy Roddy Piper:
We’re still friends, he says I tried to kill him in his book, that’s weird? I’ve taken pictures with him after and every time I take a picture with him, it’s weird. If someone tried to kill me I wouldn’t take a picture with him. He says “Oh you didn’t try to kill me” but you said that in your book asshole, so whatever. The best is when I was on Survivor he called CBS and we had already finished filming and he called and said “This is Roddy Piper, I hear Jonny Fairpay is going to be on this season of Survivor and I know one of your writers and I want Jonny Fairplay off the show”. They said there were a couple of problems with your request. We don’t have writers, it’s fucking reality TV you old out of touch mother fucker and we already filmed it and will probably go with the footage we have.
The incident discussed in Roddy Pipers book:
We were at a bar, he pulled a knife on a girl, the club promoter told me to get Roddy out of there. We got to the car, he said “drive me home” and I said I couldn’t drive and he said “I’m not asking, I’m telling you to drive me home”. We were entering a ramp where two lanes become one and I said we need to bail and he said “fucking gun” it and he grabbed the wheel and turned right and hit a car. So he leaves and said “you are on your own” and when the cops showed and asked what happened I said Roddy Piper was just here and they said; “Oh yeah? Is Hulk Hogan in your trunk?” He went home and I went to the hospital. Whatever, fuck him. There’s your quote, fuck him!
