Roderick "Roddy" George Toombs, better known by his ring name "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, is a Canadian retired professional wrestler, film actor, and podcast host signed to WWE. In professional wrestling, he is best known for his work with the WWF. Although he is Canadian, due to his Scottish heritage he was billed as coming from Glasgow in Scotland and was known for his signature kilt and bagpipe entrance music. He earned the nickname "Rowdy" by displaying his trademark "Scottish" rage, spontaneity and quick wit. Despite being a crowd favorite for his rockstar-like persona, he often played the villain. He was also nicknamed "Hot Rod". Never a world champion, he headlined several major pay-per-view events and accumulated 34 championships in various promotions during his career; he participated in the main events of WrestleMania I and WrestleMania X – as a special guest referee in the latter. Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005. Piper briefly hosted a podcast titled "The Rod Pod".
