spman: cman: I hope this wasnt an attempt to be a good heel.

If it was then WOW you really farked it up. If this was the 60s, you would have have no problem, because that is how heels acted back then. That was entertainment then. Prowrestling is very different now.

/Rowdy Roddy Piper would not have a career if he came up in todays pro wrestling.
//He once said he was gonna play the Mexican national anthem when he was in Mexico. Asked everyone to rise, then started playing La Cucaracha
///Also wore a bunch of racist shiat like "White is Right"

The harshest Roddy Piper line I can ever remember was when he told Mr T he "wears more chains than his ancestors". Ouch.


Forget the harshest Piper "line". He attacked Jimmy "Super Fly" Snuka with coconuts and bananas. Jesus. WTF was I watching?

/Was a HUGE wrestling fan
//Grew out of it

On your tax forms you write "Professional Wrestler", you're already identifying yourself at the bottom 1/64th of the evolutionary ladder.   Chances are you're a roid monster with the IQ only a banana would be jealous of, but you can't actually fight worth a crap and couldn't make it in MMA.  Oil yourself up, squeeze into your speedo, and get to your job where you hug men for the entertainment of a audience full of redneck idiots.  If anyone ever wanted to actually hear your idiotic opinion chances are you wouldn't have ended up in such a ridiculous profession.

Briscoe's tweet, and entire Twitter account, have since been deleted. <a data-cke-saved-href="<a href=" href="<a href=" http:="" www.wrestlinginc.com="" wi="" news="" roh-news="" "="" target="_blank">http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/roh-news/" style="color: rgb(0, 51, 153); text-decoration: none;">ROH issued the following statement in response to Briscoe's remarks:

Briscoe's tweet, and entire Twitter account, have since been deleted. ROH issued the following statement in response to Briscoe's remarks:

Ring of Honor Wrestling respects and appreciates every fan regardless of age, gender, race, religion or sexual preference. The recent post by Jay Briscoe does not represent the views or opinions of Ring of Honor Wrestling, its owners, management or employees.
ROH sent out another statement moments ago noting that Briscoe will issue a public apology and donate his pay from the next two ROH events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization:

Jay Briscoe would like to again express his sincerest apologies and regrets to all, especially his young fans, for his recent hateful twitter comment. Ring of Honor has insisted that Jay also make a public apology at the Ring of Honor event this Saturday night. Jay will address the public during the event.
In addition to this apology, Ring of Honor and Jay have agreed that he will donate his full pay from the next two Ring of Honor events to the Partners Against Hate charitable organization. Partners Against Hate was created to help prevent, deter, and reduce juvenile hate-related behavior.

Hey, that was completely uncalled for.  Seriously, dude, what the fark is your problem? I have read some really horrible stuff here on Fark, a lot of bottom feeder, gutter dwelling crap, and you just about take the cake.  Why all the hostility?  What did bananas ever do to you to warrant such an insulting comparison?

that's funny because wrestling is the gayest sport BY FAR.  like, male figure skaters say it's "too gay" for them.

I do.  Google "ultimate surrender" (site NSFW) an you'll see wrestling and teh ghey.  I base all of my knowledge on fetish sites, though.

it implies that Virgil, being a black man, is untrustworthy and going through everyone's things to rob them.  it's advantageous for him to do so during the Royal Rumble because there are a dozen or so guys in the ring, and not looking after their things.

That racist stuff was mostly just a part of his heel turn, right? Just part of the troll? (hoping someone will have a clue how Piper comes off in interviews/is out of character otherwise)


don't know about that. but he used to have "rowdy roddy's auto repair"  here in town - with a cutout of him in his kilt  holding two mufflers over his head like swords

was going to GIS a pic, but no luck.

there was however, a pic of ms. beckham

From TFA:
Briscoe tweeted: "The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couples to get married. If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!"

He followed that up with:

"... try and teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll f*cking shoot you."


Does that make his wrestling persona the almost politically correct redneck meme?

Psst, hey, you. You, the wannabe smark saying nonsense on Fark. Yeah, that's right. Check this out, yo. He was kayfabing. :O No. Kidding. Considering the gimmick is him being redneck he sure sounded like one. He is just making the mistake of people taking Twitter as a shoot instead of a work. I got my ass in trouble back in '05 when I was using a wrestling forum used by the TN indy workers to cultivate a heel persona. It damn well worked, but it worked too well. Seems like the boys in the back weren't aware I was ahead of my time. If I pulled the same thing today using Twitter/Facebook it'd be a monster success.
