Thought of the Day: Roddy Piper As A Heel

He was indeed great but….He wasn’t a heel for all that long.  Think about it: Piper hit the national scene in let’s say 1982, was a heel until about 1986 and has been a face for all of about a year (on and off in WCW) since then.  Piper has been a face for about 25 years after being a heel for roughly four, yet he’s eternally remembered as a heel.  That says either that heel run was amazing or that the fans have a very short attention span.

    It’s more the when rather than the how long. He was hogans first real threat to his title reign, a centrepiece to the first 2 manias and the quality of his work during the first real national stage will always be remembered over anything that came before or after.
