'Mania Match of the Day #12

WrestleMania XII
Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Goldust – Hollywood Backlot Brawl – 6

This match is broken up into two portions … part one being the stuff in the backlot and part two being the stuff in the arena, just so you can follow along at home. Piper literally beats Goldust bloody in the backlot portion. Piper’s weapon of choice was a real, legit baseball bat and proceeded to use said weapon by busting out windows and headlights on Goldust’s brand new gold caddy. Piper laid in some stiff shots to Goldie’s cranium and sprayed him down with a fire hose. Goldust got a low blow on Piper and then hit him with the Cadillac. Piper chases after him in a white Bronco. To transition from the backlot to the arena, they used the OJ police chase footage. Once the got in the arena, Goldust dominated part two and laid a few rough shots in while choking Piper with athletic tape. Piper gets pissed at Goldie’s shenanigans and rips off his one-piece to expose Goldust in a corset and nylons. That is a visual I did not need under any circumstances. The backlot portion of this match is really cool and really felt like a legit fight while the stuff in the arena was about as terrible as the last time Ryan Seacrest and Lance Bass got into a scrape on the set of “My Queer Brother”.
