Roddy Piper recently reunited with They Live co-stars Keith David and Meg Foster at a panel discussion at Texas Frightmare Weekend. During the discussion, Piper revealed Vince McMahon's reaction to him leaving WWE to film the movie.
"Vince McMahon got really angry at me for leaving the WWE-F-G, whatever it is now [crowd pops]," said Piper. "He said to me, I'll have you [in] another movie in four weeks if you don't take it... And I said, not with [They Live director] John Carpenter directing you won't. Then he sent me a message, he said to my lawyer, 'you tell Piper that Hogan and I are the only true-blue WWFers,' and that's what started the heat between us."
