At 15, Roddy had his first professional wrestling match. He had never seen a pro match, but his amateur coach was a pro referee when it came in to town. Another wrestler missed a plane and Roddy's coach told him that “I can get you 25 dollars,” Roddy immediately took it. Roddy's pipe band was so happy for him that they played Roddy into the arena. As Roddy was being piped into the arena, the announcer only knew his first name as “Roddy” and having to continue the announcement he announced “Ladies and Gentlemen, here comes Roddy the Piper!”
Roddy jumped in the ring and in front of him stood 320 pounds of Nordic Viking: Larry "The Axe" Hennig, who beat Roddy in 10 seconds by busting his nose and eye open, setting one of many records of Roddy's: shortest match in the history of the arena. With this match, Roddy Piper was born and began a full-time wrestling career at the age of 15— A permanent record, as it is illegal now.
Roddy's mentors-- or fathers as he called them, were some great fighters, such as the toughest man in the world-- Judo Gene Labell, Mad Dog Vachon, Muhammad Ali, and even the great Lou Thez, just to name a few. Roddy was smuggled in the back of a truck with a ring in it into the United States of America and never stopped fighting.
When Roddy Piper was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005, by 16 time World Champion Ric Flair, Flair said “Roddy is the greatest entertainer in Wrestling History, bar none”. “Rowdy” Roddy Piper is the last of the real deal gunslingers of Pro Wrestling. Recently, the WWE named Rowdy Roddy Piper the greatest Villain in the history of Professional Wrestling.
