WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper was a true legend in the world of professional wrestling and one of the mainstays of WWE in the 80s and early 90s. He had a larger-than-life character and there is a good reason for it. Being such a hated heel back in the day, it is no surprise some people have tried to hurt him. Even Kevin Nash claimed that Piper was a bully.
Kevin Nash has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the professional wrestling industry, having witnessed numerous changes and evolutions throughout his career. He has competed for several years and has played a role in many iconic moments.
While speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash clarified that he never had issues backstage with Hulk Hoga. However, he stated that he never liked Roddy Piper and claimed that Piper was a bully.
In his recent podcast episode, Kevin Nash spoke candidly about WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper, not holding anything back. Both wrestling legends were employed by WCW and WWE in the 1990s, and although they never had a match against each other in WWE, they did cross paths multiple times during their time in WCW from 1997 to 1998.
”I didn’t like Piper and he didn’t like me. That confrontation was just waiting to happen. I didn’t care for Roddy at all. I thought he was a bully. I thought he bullied people. I think he kind of bullied his way around. I think he told a lot of f****** stories about being really good with his hands and all this other s***. He came to me one night in the f****** locker room in Boston and I f****** b****-smacked him.”
According to Kevin Nash, the backstage altercation was witnessed by Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and Sean Waltman, though he did not provide further details on why it occurred. Nash, who is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, made this claim without further elaboration.
Roddy Piper was also paid in cocaine for a match once. His legacy will always be remembered and that is what matters in the end. That being said, Kevin Nash will never like Roddy Piper.
