when Rowdy Roddy Piper cracked Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka  in the head with the coconut in Pipers PIt he instantly became my favorite. and just to make this harness related, piper was brought into the wrasslin biz by harness  trainer and pro wrestler Yeeves "the beast" Cormier. one day i was talking to the beast in pompano around 1984 and he told me that when piper was starting out, he was shy and had problems with the interviews. then he said
" now, you cant shut him up". yeeves was laughing his ass off.                 for those who havent seem the piper video here it is.

Does anyone remember where the Saturday morning wrestling matches were televised from? Someone told me Connecticut?
In the front row every week was a very old guy, dressed in a hunting shirt with one of those hats that the ear flaps clip on top...he was hilarious...he must have been 90...and he used to get out of his seat when a bad guy was doing something with a "foreign object" laughing guy laughing guy

piper' star power at that time rivaled hogans. the first wrestlemania main event was hoga and mr t  against piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff. probably the best gimmick i ever saw was the "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibase with his everybody has a price schitck.  those skits were pretty funny.
