Roddy Piper on his son getting involved with pro wrestling
BW passed this along.
WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper recently took fan questions on WrestleNewz.com. Below are a few highlights from part 1 of the interview:
What is the latest on your son Colt getting into wrestling? Will we see him in WWE?
“There’s always the question whether a wrestler has “it.” What “it” is — that’s never defined, because there’s not a better word for it. Call it chemistry, call it charisma: there are different ways to describe it. But whatever “it” is, Colt has it. He’s a natural. Now comes the question of what Colt decides to do with it. I’m trying to mostly stay away from it. His name is Colt Toombs. He is undefeated as an MMA fighter as an amateur, and he always fights under his real name, Toombs. He’s making his own headway, on his own terms, with his own name. And I’m extremely proud of him. He is wrestling in a league called Portland Wrestling Uncut, and various groups. He was supposed to wrestle Daivari in Santiago, Chile, but unfortunately the show got canceled because they couldn’t provide the proper security. He’s doing great, though. I don’t want to give away any of his future plans. But you won’t miss him! He’ll be coming at you, oh yeah.”
When you look at the current generation of wrestlers, who do you think shows the most star potential? Who would you like to get in the ring with?
“Of the current generation? Oh my goodness, they’re all fantastic. Randy Orton, CM Punk, Jericho — I don’t want to leave anybody out. Cody Rhodes is great. So many guys nowadays are fantastic, so I can’t pick just one! But who would I want to have a match with? (Long pause) Brock Lesnar.”
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
“Mark Wahlberg. He’s already been approached. I’m telling you, they have a script already. You know, my head’s just not there right now. But there are definitely two scripts that I know of. One is by Sal (Iacono), the head writer for the Jimmy Kimmel show. And there’s another one that I know of, and Mark Wahlberg is the man they were talking about for that. And I think that he’d be a good pick.”
Also in part 1 of the interview, Piper talks about a new TV project with Bret Hart, why he would want to wrestle Brock Lesnar, a movie about his life and more. Part 2 will be released later this week.
