Christmas Carolling Insanity with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper

Well, he has done it again.  "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, one of the World Wrestling Entertainment’s greatest superstars, has shot another hilarious comedy video.  But that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.  Roddy Piper has been entertaining fans his entire life.

For over 40 years, he was wrestling’s most famous kilt-wearing badass.  His outrageous in-the-ring antics and shocking out-of-the-ring verbal attacks are legendary. 

But Roddy didn’t stop there.  This consummate performer broke new ground, becoming the first professional wrestler ever to make the move from the squared-circle to the silver screen, starring in John Carpenter’s 1988 cult classic They Live.

Raised on an impoverished native reserve in Manitoba, Canada, Roddy Piper never had to worry about avoiding trouble because trouble always found him.  At age 13, Roddy left home.  By 15, he was drifting from one youth hostel to the next, living on the streets, fighting for survival.  

But that all changed when Roddy took his first steps into a wrestling ring.

Now to many, Roddy Piper is best known for his many amazing accomplishments in the ring—from his legendary appearance at the first WrestleMania, to his epic Dog Collar match with Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, a fight that Roddy admits cost him a pint of his own blood. 

But this kind of raw, no-holds-barred dedication to the sport should come as no surprise.  Roddy Piper has been fighting the fight his entire life.

Be it in the ring or in front of the camera, Roddy is the consummate performer.  Mr. Piper has one thing in mind—delivering a performance that leaves the fans wanting more, and this new comedy video is no exception.

With Christmas fast approaching, the grappling, bagpipe-playing wrestling icon, has gotten into the holiday spirit and recorded his rendition of everyone’s favorite holiday classic, “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

However, just like everything else Roddy has done throughout his career, Roddy plans to do it his way.  So when confronted by one of his biggest wrestling fans, Mr. Piper takes the opportunity to turn this Yule tide classic into “The 12 Days of Roddy Piper.” 

Watch as Roddy captures all the love and joy that one would expect to feel during this truly festive time of the year.
