Piper Reveals Why He Wouldn’t Lay Down For Mr. T & Hogan

Nick Paglino

In part 2 of Arda Ocal's interview with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the WWE Hall of Famer speaks on his legendary match with Mr. T at WrestleMania 1. Below is the video in full, but the following is a highlight quote from Piper during the interview:

"If you look at the match, WrestleMania I, nobody let Mr. T throw one punch, not nothing. It was amateur the whole way through. If I had gone in there and let him be a clown, what he would have done is he would have come in, clowned, raised his hand, the people all would have screamed, and he would have gone back to the A-Team and laughed at us.

Well, he never laughed at us. He just curses us now. Well, you know what sir? If I came on the A-Team, I wouldn't sit in your chair. Because I have that kind of respect, but you didn't. And you ran into the wrong guy…Why wouldn't I do it for T? Because it was wrong." You can check out part 1 of the interview if you CLICK HERE.
