The late 1980s were a great time for wrestling and this commercial sums up why. In 3 words? Rowdy Roddy Piper baby! Besides being the awesome star of “They Live” (get that man some bubblegum) He also happened to be one of the finest instigators to ever trod the canvas. You can have your glitz and fireworks today, but they are a poor substitute for a good villain who knows how to run an arena full of people.
Oh the wrestling villains today are tougher? Cooler? No way.. watch this example of bad assery you sheep herders.
