I spoke with “Rowdy” Roddy Piper just yesterday.
I chatted with him by phone for almost an hour, interviewing him for a wrestling website I write for.
Not once did he mention BLACK DYNAMITE.
How he could have overlooked such an important topic is beyond me. You would think something as surreal as the ass-whooping he took from BLACK DYNAMITE would have come up in conversation at least once.
Nope. Not a word. Roddy talked about Mr. T and Jimmy Snuka and Mr. Perfect and The Rock and Hulk Hogan, but not once did he mention getting beaten up by Black Dynamite in a laundromat.
This video just hit the interwebs today, thanks to the mad geniuses at Nerdist. It’s worth watching several times, because it unveils new layers of meaning with each viewing. Or perhaps it makes you dumber. Either way, it messes with your noodle.
I just can’t believe he failed to mention it to me. Much like Jimmy Snuka, I’ll never trust Rowdy Roddy Piper again.
