“Rowdy” Roddy Piper Is Coming To Fanfest
May 6, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
That’s right, folks! This August in Atlanta, NWA and Georgia wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper will be making a rare appearance and his first-ever at our NWA Wrestling Legends Fanfest Weekend!
Piper will be appearing on both Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6, courtesy of vendor Toploaders & More. The WWE Hall-of-Famer will be taking part in two very special photo opportunities.
Truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — Piper will join former foe Greg “The Hammer” Valentine in a special “Dog Collar” photo op where you’ll be able to use as props the actual dog collars and chain from their classic Starcade ’83 war!
Also, we’ll have on hand the authentic original United States championship belt (silver) that Piper and Valentine fought over in the Mid-Atlantic area in the early 1980’s and, if you’d like, you’ll be able to use it as a prop in your photo op as well.
Piper will be also be doing photo ops in his famous attire (Hot Rod shirt and Scottish kilt,) in a replica of his famous “Piper’s Pit” set! How cool is that?
Both photo ops will be available on both Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6. Piper will be signing autographs on other items on Saturday, August 6 only.
But that’s not all. While he’s in Atlanta, Piper will be inducting his former broadcast partner Gordon Solie into the Hall of Heroes on Friday night, August 5, and will also perform a special late-night standup — “All My Rowdy Friends!” — on Saturday, August 6, featuring several of the NWA legends in attendance!
You’ll be able to purchase individual autographs and photo ops at the event, or you can pre-purchase now the “Roddy Piper SuperFan Package” and save 40 bucks!
