For over six decades, Roddy Piper was nothing short of a fixture in professional wrestling. The rowdy wrestler debuted at the end of the 1960s to little fanfare. He spent the ensuing decades working his way up the ladder. He became one of the biggest heels for a generation of fans and a bona fide legend for every generation afterward.
Piper wasn't always the one to deliver a five-star classic in the ring but his best matches are ones that involve a lot of drama, theatrics, and even violence. Let's take a look at the 10 best matches in Roddy Piper's storied career.
10. Roddy Piper vs The Mountie, Royal Rumble 1992
Although the match itself was fairly brief, it represents a monumental win in Piper's legendary career. By defeating The Mountie, Piper captured his only singles championship in all of his years with WWE and even managed to do it as a beloved fan favorite. The elation on Piper's face is unmistakable and it is a lot of fun to watch him give The Mountie a taste of his own medicine by using his trademark shock stick on him to secure the victory. A long-awaited and much-deserved feather in the cap for Piper.
