Roddy Piper Makes Unusual Remarks Regarding Hulk Hogan On Talk Show

As if the situation couldn't get any wilder, Roddy Piper was the latest wrestling personality to chime in on the Hulk Hogan situation. The WWE Hall of Famer appeared on Audience Network with former ESPN anchor Rich Eisen to talk about the controversy.

As it turns out, Piper spoke very little of Hogan, or anything specific really. Instead he brought attention to himself, and talked about how he'd ordered at Mexican restaurants that had sandwiches called "gringo burgers." He also made sure to mention that he once placed 5th in the world in bagpipe playing.

"When I would go into Madison Square Garden, I wasn't the most popular guy. Madison Square Garden there's 16,000 Puerto Ricans with knives and great radios and stuff. They pick it up from L.A. That's how they knew that I was there," Piper tried to explain.

Piper mentioned that he would wear a kilt at MSG, he'd have homophobic slurs at him. Eisen steered the conversation back towards Hogan, where Piper finally commented...sort of.

"My point is that, boy, you guys are sensitive," Piper said. "Hang on. I know people who have to get up to walk five miles for water first thing in the morning. I'm just saying this literally happens to me my whole life. With Hulk, I don't agree with all his choices, but you know what, I don't hear people saying all the great things he does. When he was on the Wheaties box, all those kids that said their prayers and took their vitamins. I don't hear them saying that. They just want to nail this."

Piper also noted that everyone needed to get a life, but we shouldn't be hurting people's feelings for no reason. He also mentioned that Brooke Hogan isn't actually Brooke's real name, and put over the Stand for the Silent charity he's worked with. Eisen then apologized for the homophobic slur Piper said that managed to make it on air.
