Who wouldn’t want to see a match between two wrestling legends like Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan? Both men dominated professional wrestling back in the 80’s and 90’s and in spite of their ages, both are still involved with wrestling today.

Piper was known as a heel in wrestling and was famous for his annoying, but witty trash talk. During his career he had several memorable rivalries. He never held the title of world champion, but was often a main eventer and headliner. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.

Piper tweeted about wrestling Hogan again and almost made it sound like a challenge for the WWE to put the two wrestlers in the ring together. He also talked a little smack to Hogan who didn’t tweet back and may not be interested in wrestling Piper.

WrestleMania XXX is only a few months away and it would make many people happy to see two wrestling legends like Hogan and Piper wrestle one last time. Piper is 59 years old and Hogan is 60, but both of them are still in decent shape and could no doubt put on a great show.

Anyone who was a wrestling fan in the 80’s and 90’s will tell you that it was way different from how it is today. There were better characters, better storylines, better moves and better rivalries. While younger wrestling fans might find a match between Piper and Hogan almost comical, veteran fans would appreciate it for its nostalgia and enjoy letting it take them back to a time when wrestling was in its prime.

Do you think the two wrestlers should have one more match in the ring?

    You should both stay in your rocking chairs, and also renew your subscriptions to AARP. They do have AARP in Canada, Roddy ? !

    Well, first off I want to thank Ellisha for bringing this to everyone’s attention and doing such a great story on it. There isn’t a big woman fan base when it comes to wrestling. There really never has been. Which, I don’t know if you are a fan or not but I do appreciate the trouble to take on the story. I think that there are still a great deal of people that would enjoy this match if it was done right. Now days, a lot of the stories that the WWE comes up with the fans don’t truly appreciate. In fact, if you were to look through the facebook site that is governed by the WWE you would see where the majority of people get annoyed with the news ideas, moving Daniel Bryan to the Wyatt family just for one example. Now, fans are always going to show their disapproval when a face turns into a heel. However, in this case it is more of people just being annoyed by the been there done that perspective. So, having Piper and Hogan do a match if done right for the 30th WrestleMania might not be that bad of an idea. If anything it would probably be good for marketing.

    I was liking the first rumors I heard about Hogan and the return of the NWO for the next wrestle-mania. that would be dope..

    I will say this; I’ve never seen a WWE ppv live or bought one or whatever, but if it had Hogan/Piper on the card, I’d buy it. If ANYONE, not named Flair, could pull it off at 60, it’s these 2 guys. Period. They are pros and wouldn’t allow themselves to look bad. People knocking Hogan, I’d be more concerned about Piper if anyone sense he’s had the longest breaks from the ring, in and out, the last 20 years. But he’s tier 1 guy and would no doubt pull it off.

    Let them show up as backstage guests and maybe say a few things in the ring, but please, PLEASE, don’t put them in a match. It could kill them. Or at least they will be both beat to a bloody pulp and both carried out in stretchers. It’s WrestleMania! Where the legends can show up, but just that, show up. Then, go home.
