As we'll see when we get to Shawn Michaels, making a huge and memorable impact on the history of WrestleMania is as much about putting on a show as it is about winning matches.
Roddy Piper's WrestleMania record is 2-4-1.
But every time Roddy Piper was involved in WrestleMania, he put on quite a show.
Piper headlined the first WrestleMania as one of the most despised heels in the game. Although his team lost, he managed to leave the match without getting pinned and took out Pat Patterson along the way. He set the bar high for WrestleMania from the very beginning.
The following year, he squared off against Mr. T in a boxing match that was thrown out when Piper threw his corner stool at the television star.
At WrestleMania 3, with a card dominated by the main event and the match of the evening going to Savage and Steamboat, Piper managed to put on a very entertaining match against Adrian Adonis, shaving the effeminate wrestler's golden curls afterwards.
Piper wouldn't be seen again until his epic match against Bad News Brown at WrestleMania 6. He shocked everyone by showing up painted half-black. Then they put on a clinic in regards to brawling in a professional wrestling ring.
At WrestleMania 8, he defended and lost the Intercontinental Championship to Bret Hart in a hard-fought, emotional contest.
At WrestleMania 10, Piper served as a guest referee for the WWF Championship rematch between Bret Hart and Yokozuna, probably his least significant role among all of his appearances at the Grandaddy of Them All.
One of the most memorable matches of WrestleMania 12 had to be Piper's Hollywood Backlot Brawl against Goldust. Who doesn't remember the ridiculous footage they used from the O.J. Simpson trial, or the way they drew the match out throughout most of the pay-per-view?
He made one more appearance at WrestleMania 25, teaming up with Ricky Steamboat and Jimmy Snuka (with Ric Flair in their corner) in a loss to Chris Jericho.
He may not have a record that looks anything like the Undertaker's, but any time Piper is involved with the April pay-per-view, you can expect something special.
