Roddy Piper Once Faced Fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley In A Match Many Never Saw
By ELLA JAY
Juggalo Championship Wrestling certainly lived up to the name of its “Legends and Icons” pay-per-view in August 2011. During the main event, four WWE hall of famers — Mick Foley, Terry Funk, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and “Cowboy” Bob Orton — clashed in a tag team match, and it was the first time Foley and Piper had ever met in the ring.
Mick Foley initially arrived at the show as a part of the commentary team, and he remained on it until the main event when Terry Funk asked him to save the day. In what was supposed to be a one-on-one, “Rowdy" Roddy Piper came into the ring with Bob Orton in tow, and the two unleashed a beatdown on Funk.
Enter Foley, who stepped off commentary to come to Funk's aid, and as a result, the singles match that was supposed to be then officially morphed into the tag team that was. After a fierce back-and-forth, Orton managed to score the pinfall on Funk with Piper's help to pick up the victory for their team.
