Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies: how Roddy Piper sent a zombie to hospital

roddypiper-wrestlers-vs-zombiesWWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper, who has a bunch of ultra-cool action movies under his belt, spoke to Chad Dukes on Chad Dukes versus the World, and talked about his participation in the “Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies” film.

Piper said he had a lot of fun making the film, which at first, he didn’t want to do.

“The title Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies, pretty much sums it up. At first I didn’t take it seriously, but then someone said – you did Hell comes to Frogtown, so there you go. Then I found out that Jim Duggan is going to be in it, and then Kurt Angle, Matt Hardy, Shane Douglas – they all kept coming, and they’re all my brothers. So i thought this could be a lot of fun,” Piper said. “The film really is a comedy.”

Further speaking about the film, Piper said how he accidentally put one of the actors in the film, who played a zombie, into a hospital.

“This poor kid, he came in to the kitchen part of the jail, he had a bandage around his head like he was a zombie and I thought, “Okay,” and I saw a kitchen pot, and I threw him onto the table and I was hitting him in the head,” Piper said. “But I mean it was going CLANG, but I thought I was hitting the steel of the sink part, but I wasn’t, I was hitting his head!”

“Poor kid, and that gauze, white gauze, blood started coming out and I go,that’s really good, these guys are good. Somehow they got that blood there”, and then “Cut! Can somebody call an ambulance!”. So I’ll just go back to my trailer now. He was a really sweet kid, I wouldn’t of hurt nobody like that I thought I was hitting the sink.”

“It was so much fun, and I cant believe it is getting so much press,” Piper added.

He went on to tell a story of filming a scene in the ring, that is being surrounded by zombies, and how he nearly kicked an old lady that was squeezing his ankle, during the shoot.

“Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies” is about a bunch of wrestlers being offered to hold a show in a prison. As always, something goes wrong, and our heroes have to use their butt-kicking skills to fight off the hungry undead.

The film stars Roddy Piper, Kurt Angle, Shane Douglas, and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
