They Live Featurette Featuring Roddy Piper (1988)

With Dollar Dave’s fantastic Top 10 matches in WrestleMania yesterday it got me thinking on my favorite wrestler back in my youth. Rowdy Roddy Piper, a heel perhaps but still charming enough to make him the one my Family always looked forward to watching.

Then one day we heard that, I think it was a segment on Entertainment Tonight actually, that Piper was going to be starring in the next John Carpenter film entitled ‘They Live’. The film didn’t disappoint. Here is a behind the scenes featurette from back in 1988 taking time with Piper and John Carpenter discussing the character of John Nada and Piper himself.

Boy…at the :17 mark…doesn’t Keith David looked a little miffed at Piper?
