Summary
In 2015, wrestling super star Rowdy Roddy Piper, began researching his own autobiography with a trip through Western Canada to rediscover his roots. He never finished the book. Following his death that July, two of his children took on the job of telling the extraordinary life of their father. Already an accomplished wrestler before Wrestlemania in 1985, Roddy Piper could infuriate a crowd like no 'heel' before him. The main antagonist to all-American champion Hulk Hogan, Piper used his quick wit, explosive wrestling style and fearless baiting of audiences to push pro wrestling to unprecedented success. Also an actor with over 50 screen credits, Piper knew how to keep fans hungry, just as he'd kept them wishing for a complete portrait of his unusual life. He wanted to write this book for his family, now his family has written it for him
