Roderick George Toombs (born April 17, 1954)[2] better known by his ring name "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, is a semi-retired Canadian professional wrestler, and movie actor. He is a WWE Hall of Famer and was inducted in 2005.

Piper hosted a popular interview segment on WWE Raw, called "Piper's Pit". The segment mainly aired during the late 1980s and early 1990s. It has been abandoned since Piper left the WWE, but is still done on special occasions when Piper makes a special appearance.
