One Saturday morning at my grandparents Right after my fruit bowl and just befor my bagel and scrambled eggs ...

Roddy Piper the beer bottle smash

Roddy Piper in the spring of 1980
I saw this when it originally aired on Vancouver All Star Wrestling 27 years ago.
I never thought I would see this again.
when I was 8 years old I thought this was really cool.
At 35 it makes me a little queasy.
While the storyline and the match are a work(preditermined) , the blood and the bottle of Miller high life are very real.

This is an interesting compliment to the shotgun-blast-to-the-head bit in your clip of THEY LIVE.

As for Mr. Piper deliberately crowning himself with a full beer bottle (risking concussion, scarring, blindness, etc.), I think it probably falls under the label of "It seemed like a good idea at the time . . . "
