“Rowdy” Roddy Piper died in 2015, and there’s still a kilt-shaped hole in the universe that he left behind. Luckily for fans, a documentary about the pro wrestling legend/They Live star is now available for viewing, and as if that weren’t enough a portion of those $7.99 rentals of Roddy Piper: In His Own Words will benefit Piper’s favorite charity, the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Here’s director David Sinnott on how the project came together:
“This project meant a lot to me to put together. I have fond memories of working with Piper on another project and it didn’t sit well with me that so much great footage was locked away in a vault. I recall his daughter was present for the entirety of our film shoot and it was clearly evident that he was a decent family man. It was important for me to connect with Roddy’s wife, Kitty Toombs, for input on this project.”
Check out a trailer for the aptly titled Roddy Piper: In His Own Words below. To watch the film, you’ll need to also to rent last year’s wrestling documentary Nine Legends at that project’s official site here.
