• WWE Hall Of Famer Was Paid In Cocaine For A Match
No, we’re not talking about The Iron Sheik here … but we do understand why he would be the first WWE Hall Of Famer who came to your mind after reading the headline.
During the premiere episode of Ric Flair’s brand new Wooooo Nation Uncensored podcast, The Nature Boy revealed that Old School WWF Legend ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper was once paid for a match in cocaine.
Here’s what Ric said:
“They gave me $5000 and they gave Piper cocaine and $500 bucks. He was happy.”
Both Flair and Piper used to wrestle for the NWA Territories, then for the World Wrestling Federation and after that for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling. In 2006 at the Cyber Sunday PPV, they teamed up and defeated The Spirit Squad to become the WWE World Tag Team Champions.
