In the Pit with Piper
Here, in his own words, is the story of one of the greatest wrestlers ever-Rowdy Roddy Piper. The bagpipe-playing legend gets down and dirty about the world of professional wrestling-and his own career.
He takes readers back to his life as a teenage runaway and his first match, when he stepped into the ring for $25. He recalls his triumph as the youngest World Light Heavyweight Champion, and how he helped make the World Wrestling Federation the phenomenon it is today with little more than a microphone stand and a bow tie.
From a man who joined the game long before it emerged as big-time entertainment comes a story that tells it like it is-and that's filled with as much excitement as the jam-packed arenas where he fought his fiercest foes.

A great book detailing Roddy's long, hard road to the top and some of the sad truths about the darker side of professional wrestling. The book is full of many wonderful stories that are too wild to be made up. A must read for anyone who ever enjoyed Piper's Pit and Roddy's wild antics.
