Roddy Piper Wants To Wrestle Hulk HoganBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - January 12, 2014
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?
