Someone Bought This: A talking Roddy Piper figure with one major issue…

R.D just sent this video to me with the following email:

FROM: R.D Reynolds.
TO: The Big Cheese Paul Kraft.
SUBJET: please post and sticky this asap

Sweet Christmas. This is legit the worst ever.

So I knew it had to be something really awful…


You weren’t kidding, boss!

Okay, I get that since he’s dead they can’t bring him in to record lines for this toy, but couldn’t they have just grabbed sound clips from throughout his career and used those instead of hiring someone who sounds nothing like him?

That would have been slightly less disrespectful and… you know… terrible.

This is like when they hired people who sound nothing like Andre The Giant and Ted DiBiase to voice them for the cutscenes for the WWF Superstars arcade game.

“NO ONE CAN BEAT MEGABUGH”.! I bet that URL’s not taken…

  1. Tony says:

    He actually sounds more like Piper from Hulk Hogan’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling. So it could technically be considered accurate.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      So it sounds like someone else who also doesn’t sound anything like Piper? That does not count for anything! 🙂

  2. Thomas says:

    In the WWF Superstars video, DiBiase looks like he’s wearing a mask of his own face, and it’s crooked.

  3. Doc75 says:

    seriously at first I thought it might have been Howard Finkel doing the voice

  4. Fred says:

    To be fair… Roddy Piper from 1996 sounded nothing like Roddy Piper from 1986

  5. The Doctor of Style says:

    Piper? Sounds more like Jimmy Hart!

    “Real men wear skirts, baby!”

  6. John C says:

    That was beyond terrible, and horrible. If terrible and horrible mated they couldn’t spawn anything more awful than this. Embarrassing and pretty shameful money grab on their part.

  7. Jimbolian says:

    Either my hearing is off, but that sounded 100% like Tony Schiavone doing his worst Roddy Piper impersonations.

  8. AK says:

    I thought the Piper Figure sounded more like Dutch Mantel using his Zeb Coulter character. He was all about the Grindr

  9. Hew says:

    Sounds like Gunnery Sgt Hartmann from Full Metal Jacket.

  10. Jerm says:

    I’m hearing Jim Cornette in this.

  11. Alex says:

    There’s a Macho Man figure in this same line that also has a horribly fake voice as well.

  12. clockwork says:

    I thought it sounded like Honkey Tonk Man if someone was squeezing his nuts with pliers.

  13. MistaMaddog says:

    Hell you should hear in WWF Wrestlefest how the Japanese programers voiced Legion Of Doom…

    “We snack on danger and dine on death…YEARGH!!!”

  14. Roland Smitts says:

    That Piper is in my local Target. I thought it sounded like Larry Zbyszko impersonating Piper. I believe every “talking legend” figure is a “soundalike.” You should hear the Steve Austin. Sounds like John Goodman.

  15. Jason Pollock says:

    It actually sounds like Bruce Pritchard. He claims to do a “perfect” Piper impression, and I’ve wondered if this is it.
