Just when they think they've got the answers, I change the questions!
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper. He was man who shocked the world on a regular basis. And a lot of the time, it was his mini-show that facilitated his rowdiness.
Piper's Pit was an interview segment. But, it was not just an interview segment, it was an idea that would revolutionize interactions between superstars in professional wrestling.
From Jimmy Snuka to Andre the Giant to The Haiti Kid to Steve Austin to John Cena—Piper interviewed them all on this iconic part of WWE programming. He left no stone unturned and no punch pulled in humiliating his guests. And the fans loved it.
The Pit was such a success that it was emulated successfully by the likes of Butus "The Barber" Beefcake (The Barbershop), Chris Jericho (The Highlight Reel), Edge (Cutting Edge), Carlito (Carlito's Cabana) and Christian (The Peep Show), among others.
With Monday Night Raw scheduled to go a full three hours in upcoming weeks, we will undoubtedly see an increase in non-wrestling segments. While WWE would be tempted to utilize "fart jokes" or pointless backstage segments involving Hornswoggle and/or Vickie Guerrero, it would be much better if they gave us more watchable interview segments instead.
Here, I list five such interview segments that might actually entertain and not force the viewers to change the channel or take bathroom breaks.
