Don't throw rocks at a man with a machine gun

I know what people are thinking. What the hell is up with that title? Well, let me tell ya, it's a famous quote from legendary pro-wrestler Rodderick George Tombs, better known to most people as the "Hot Scot" Rowdy Roddy Piper. I know your next question is where am i going with this?

Where I am going is Roddy's DVD Born To Controversy. This tells the life, times, and the ways of Roddy. It tells the story about how he broke into pro-wrestling, and made a living out it from the again of 15 years old.

While watching this you learned that he lived all over the world, and left home at the age of 12 going on 13. He struggled to survive, and lived in teen hostels just to have a place to survive; with the rent being something 25 cents Canadian.




One of the things that you find out is that Roddy was in John Carpenter's film They Live. Carpenter went on to say he was looking at a notebook with stuff that Roddy was going to try and use during promos and interviews, and saw one line that he told Roddy to put in the movie. That famous line is: "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum."

My question is, would you expect anything else from someone like Roddy?

Oh yeah there's one more thing to remember, just when you think that you've got the answer, he switches the question!

from 1-10 it gets a 9
