Here are ten of the wildest Wrestlemania moments.
#10. Roddy Piper extinguishes Morton Downey Jr.'s heat.
For those of you who didn't grow up in the 1980s, you're probably wondering why Piper had beef with Iron Man's dad.
Morton Downey Jr. (no relation to Robert) had gained prominence as a 'shock jock' comedian whose main gimmick was smoking a cigarette and being obnoxious. While there are certain parallels between him and Roddy Piper, it's clear that Hot Rod was genuinely a bit madcap.
When Morton Downey Jr. kept blowing smoke in Piper's face, the Rowdy One responded by using a fire extinguisher to blast the comedian in the face. Most celebrities should be so lucky to have such an up close and personal experience with Roddy Piper!
