Rowdy Roddy Piper Wrestling with Broken Neck
Rowdy Roddy Piper Broken Neck: Doctors Freak Out after MRI
When we say that kilted WWF and WWE legend Rowdy Roddy Piper has been wrestling with a broken neck, we don't mean that in a figurative sense. Piper has been literally wrestling while his neck was broken.
Rowdy Roddy Piper will undergo emergency neck surgery on September 12, and he's keeping fans updated via Twitter.
Rowdy Roddy Piper (born Roderick Toombs in Saskatoon, Alberta) doesn't know exactly when he broke his neck, but has been dealing with the pain for the past few months. He thought it was no big deal.
There going to shave my hair, slash neck open, and take a chisel and hammer to my neck bones. That's in 5 hrs.Waiting 4 God to send Locusts.
Piper is facing the upcoming surgery with bravado, which makes sense, since he has survived:
- Hodgkin's Lymphoma
- A plane crash
- Getting run over by a car
- Getting his signature bagpipes stuffed with toilet paper by Classy Freddie Blassie
- Being an 80's wrestling star: many of them are dead by now
... so his fans are probably more worried about the surgery than he is. Hopefully UCLA Medical Center will play Rowdy Roddy Piper's entrance theme.
