Roddy Piper – One Step Up

I watched an episode of "Celebrity House Hunting" this morning. Don't ask why, I have no idea. It was on for some reason. I blame my girlfriend. However, the preview for next week's show featured none other than "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. I didn't realize he was doing so well to afford the houses listed on that show. I guess I was wrong.

Piper's appearance on a show I never watch isn't the reason he's taking a step up this week. Rather, it was his recent interview with Arda Ocal that got me thinking. Not to mention, he was excellent in "Piper's Pit" a week and a half ago on Smackdown.

Piper says he could get ready for one more good match. I'm in, but I want one step further.

I want one more good PROGRAM. And not anything with his son. No offense to Colt Toombs, but he can pave his own way via talent. It's hard for sons (and daughters) of former superstars to get out of the shadow of their parents. I'd rather Roddy put over another young gun that needs it.

Someone like Miz, or Cody Rhodes, or Dolph.

I wouldn't expect Roddy's in-ring work to be anything spectacular, although he could surprise me, but he's still a verbal wizard. Truly one of the all-time greats on the mic, I'd pay to see Roddy Piper one more time.
