Press Release: Details on Roddy Piper's upcoming book

Sep 23, 2002 - 1:35:00 PM
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO BOOKMARK US & VISIT US DAILY


Pre-order your personally autographed copy of IN THE PIT WITH PIPER by

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper, available now only through http://www.inthepitwithpiper.com

He is the last of professional wrestling's untouchables: An accomplished amateur and professional wrestler, Golden Gloves boxing champion, actor, musician, businessman, and author, he even has a black belt from "Judo" Gene LaBell who trained Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee.He is the epitome of wrestling's greatest, he is the master of drawing money, he is the crescendo of professionalism - he is "Rowdy" Roddy Piper!

Piper has been married for 23 years and has four beautiful children, a scarce rarity in the sport of professional wrestling.Having left home at the age of 13, he holds the world record for having over 7,000 pro fights, and is the youngest professional wrestler in history, his first match being the first one he had ever seen, an accident all at the unbelievable age of 15. He also came 5th in the world playing the bagpipes at the young age of 14. He has sacrificed a hip, and once even went down in a plane, broke his neck, and wrestled twice, all within a period of 12 hours.

Having done over 60,000 interviews, he is the genuine coup de gras when it comes to captivating you and taking you beyond your wildest imagination into the behind the scenes, uncensored details of professional wrestling.

You will read about "the perfect murder," and the undeniable proof that makes it so perfect. You will find out why Roddy Piper's motto was "I don't take dives and I don't do windows."

You will read everything from Roddy getting stabbed three individual times while wrestling, one an inch from his heart, to his encounter with the infamous Hillside Strangler in Los Angeles after which he moved to Riverside, CA only to nearly escape an attack and have a gun held to his head by the Riverside serial killers who were responsible for the deaths of 22 young boys whose bodies were found in shallow graves wrapped in green garbage bags.

He will take you from his creation of the "WWF Machine" to the offer that "the end of Cyndi Lauper's career could be the beginning of yours." You will understand why pro wrestling has the highest suicide rate of any sport, and for the first time have a name put to the cause of these tragedies, "The Sickness," a chapter in "In the Pit With Piper." As Piper puts it, "The amount of the sickness in the wrestler is directly proportional to the amount of the manipulation by the promoter," and he will explain this in the most graphic of details.

He will tell you why five of the six Von Erich family wrestlers have committed suicide, and how Piper calls this and other suicides/deaths in the sport of pro wrestling "assisted murder."Roddy started Andy Kaufman's career and went on to star in 25 motion pictures and even dealt with having his Frat brother Bruiser Brody bleed to death on the dressing room floor over a wrestling match finish.

From creating the first ever wrestling Pay-Per-View, 1983's Starcade, to starting the World Wrestling Federation and World Championship Wrestling, as the truth will come out Roddy Piper is the Founding Father of the WWF which has grown into an international billion-dollar industry. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper will do for you what he has done for the world: Unite the wrestling fans/non-fans of the world alike, and define the "Rowdy" in Roddy Piper, the same "Rowdy" that has made him a Living Legend of our time and a trademark name known worldwide, not by his words, but by being in your living room since 1969.
