Video: Final Piper’s Pit from MCW’s Shane Shamrock Cup

Maryland Championship Wrestling released the final Piper’s Pit from his appearance at their July 18th Shamrock Cup show along with a call to make a donation in his name to a bullying organization Piper worked for named Stand for the Silent.

Here’s the release from Maryland Championship Wrestling:

“On July 18th, 2015, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper appeared for an edition of “Piper’s Pit”, as part of MCW’s Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup 15. Former WWE Creative Writer, Kevin Eck, was Roddy’s guest and the topic was the use of writers in the ever-changing world of professional wrestling. As always, Roddy Piper gives his candid thoughts on the industry, while recounting some incredible stories from his career. Sadly, the world lost Roddy Piper just 13 days later, on July 31st, 2015, at the age of 61. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, at this extremely difficult time.”

“MCW immediately knew that we wanted to share the final Piper’s Pit with the world. This moment belongs to all of us who were fortunate enough to see this legendary performer in action. Join Shawn Credle and Danny Mays, as we honor the legacy of a true legend and a wonderful human being, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.”

Monday Night Raw Preview 8/3/15

It’s Monday night and boy does WWE have a show for you! All your favorite superstars and divas are hitting the squared circle in sunny San Jose, California for some slam-bang action. The pre-show notations:

  • RIP RRP: First things first, wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper passed away over the weekend, and no doubt WWE will have several touching tributes ready to go tonight. Make sure the Kleenex is handy in the event some dust storms surface in your living room.
  • Beast in the Building: For the first time since whooping up on the Undertaker two weeks ago, Brock Lesnar (and his advocate Paul Heyman) will be in the building for Raw. No word on what’s to go down, but expect violence. Lots of violence.
  • The Champ is NOT Here: Okay, so maybe John Cena will make an appearance on Raw, but after suffering a broken nose at the knee of WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, Cena is expected to miss quite a bit of action. Of course this is John Cena we’re talking about, so he’ll probably be 100% by SummerSlam, but stranger things have happened. With his match with Rollins up in the air, expect a new opponent to emerge to challenge Rollins (Triple H?).
  • Hometown Hero: Standout NXT diva Bayley (a San Jose native) was teasing an appearance on Raw via Twitter recently. While it seems unlikely another NXT divas would get called up so soon after Becky Lynch, Charlotte, and NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, it never hurts to hold out hope for one more.
  • Cesaro Section: The guys behind the quasi-controversial “Cesaro Section” signs are at it again! Look for it tonight.

That’s it! Enjoy the show and check back here for the Day After report.
