Teal Piper Won’t Wear Her Dad’s Gear
Teal Piper, the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, was recently signed by WOW wrestling. During a media call, she talked a bit about how another woman “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey has been paying tribute to her father.
According to Piper, she was in the room when Rousey and her father met and she asked him if she could use “Rowdy” when she stepped into the octagon. She appreciates the tribute that Rousey makes to her father.
She talked further about Rousey’s evoking of Piper’s memory, including wearing her father’s jacket to the WWE ring and if she would be doing anything similar.
“I will not be wearing my dad’s gear if that’s what you’re wondering,” Piper said.
“That’s the same jacket my dad put on me as, like a five-year-old, you know? So I have such a sentimental appreciation for all of his stuff; I would feel weird wearing it to the ring. And more than that, especially as his kid, it’s a bit in-your-face to be showing up in his gimmick. I want to be my own person. So while my costume will have nods to him, it’s definitely not going to be the same style you see Ronda Rousey in, “she elaborated.
Brandi Rhodes On The One Wrestling Storyline She’s Not Interested In
AEW’s Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes spoke to Jonathan Snowden of Bleacher Report recently and revealed what wrestling idea she wouldn’t be interested in playing a part of.
According to Rhodes, she would not be comfortable in any storyline that would portray her as being unfaithful to her husband Cody Rhodes.
“That’s an area I don’t like to go. It’s just not for me,” said Rhodes.
“And the fans, they know us. They know Cody and me, and they like our relationship. So, I would never want to kind of scoff in their faces and make it seem like it’s something that it’s not,” she elaborated
