Roderick "Roddy" George Toombs, better known by his ring name "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, is a retired Canadian professional wrestler, film actor, and podcast host.

Per a WWE "Legend's Contract", he makes occasional TV and promotional appearances for the company.

In professional wrestling, he is best known for his work with the World Wrestling Federation.

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".

Piper headlined several major pay-per-view events; he participated in the main events of WrestleMania I and WrestleMania X – as a special guest referee in the latter.

Never a world champion, he nevertheless accumulated 34 championships in various promotions during his career.

Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 and named No. 1 of the Top 50 villains in wrestling history by the WWE.
