• CM Punk Paid Tribute To WWF Legend With AEW Revolution 2022 Match
The 1st ever Dog Collar Match in Professional Wrestling took place at NWA Starrcade 1983, where Roddy Piper defeated Greg Valentine.
At the AEW Revolution 2022 pay-per-view, CM Punk defeated MJF in a Dog Collar Match.
During the post-Revolution media scrum, Punk noted that this match was a ‘love letter’ to Piper.
Below are the highlights:
On paying tribute to Roddy Piper with his Dog Collar Match with MJF:
“Why am I creating these moments? It’s a love letter to Roddy Piper. During my career, I had a couple of good Dog Collar Matches with some good people. It just kinda made sense to tell the story.
I love Roddy Piper, I don’t think that’s a secret. MJF loves Roddy Piper, too. I think it’s important that while telling stories, you can always go back to the bedrock of pro-wrestling.”
If he’ll do more Dog Collar Matches in the future:
“Hopefully not. They’re hard. I think Dog Collar Matches are stupid dangerous, I’m happy that I still have all my teeth. They’re very brutal. It’s hard for fans to understand truly how brutal they are.
I think most people have been punched in the face once or twice in their lives, so they can kinda relate to that. But having 10-20 feet of loggers chain attached to your neck – it sucks.”
