Who woud you consider modern day Roddy Piper?

We all know both Chris Jericho and CM Punk tailored their kayfabe characters based on Rowdy Roddy Piper in his prime. Jericho in his DVD said he "sort of" considers himself the modern day piper. Punk calls Piper his "childhood inspiration" and that piper is what he actually wanted to be when he got into the business.

I'm wondering who the wrestling fans or atleast the internet fans believe is the best modern day representation of the legendary wrestler. Vote in the poll. (No need to consider the position/status of the superstars within WWE, just their characters.)

Note - No disrespect to Piper or his fans here.

I consider Piper the modern day Piper. He's one of a rare breed you can't duplicate ^^
Between these two i would say Jericho cause he have a more "old school" approach to wrestling, but to be honest I don't see so many similarities with Piper.

There will never be another Roddy Piper, or anyone close.

Piper is one of a kind, sure his recent comebacks may not have been that great but he is still much more enjoyable than most of the roster for me, but if I had to choose, it's Jericho.

There will never be anyone like Piper.

But the closest for me is Jericho, definitely.

I didn't vote on the poll, because neither a modern day Pipers. What makes them modern day Pipers?

Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time - The Undertaker, The Rock, Stone Cold, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle and Edge

Nobody is close to Piper, but if I had to pick, I'd say Punk seems like he is closer than anyone else. Piper on the mic was always gold no matter what.

Someone who hasn't or ever will win the world title? Zack Ryder?

Re: Who woud you consider modern day Roddy Piper?

Neither are really close to Piper. There is no-one like Piper.

That said, Punk is probably the closer of the two, by virtue of being a whiny ass punk that runs his mouth. Not that Jericho didn't used to do that too, but Punk has always had slightly more of an edge to him, a little more of an edge. Really though, there is no comparison Piper is Piper, and Jericho and Punk are great in their own ways.


I mark for (right now):

William Regal
CM Punk
Mike Quackenbush
Dean Ambrose
Cesaro
Daniel Bryan
Paige
Bad News Barrett


Infinite marking and endless love for:

Eddie Guerrero
Larry Sweeney
Macho Man Randy Savage
