Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Who do you enjoy watching more.

The Nature Boy? Or Hot Rod?

You can only choose one.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Roddy for promos, Ric for matches..so Ric, maybe

What is better than winning gold at the Paralympics?
Having legs.

I second that! Piper was far better on the mic, but Flair was better in the ring.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

First off, I like both. To answer the question, I like Ric Flair better. Both on the mic and in ring.

Ric Flair did rely on having the belt. Being champ was as much his gimmick as being the Nature Boy. Roddy didn't need anything to do his thing. He didn't even need a match. Roddy's Pit.

I can see why people would say Roddy. If the heel is suppose to piss off the crowd... he could do it. Flair's routine was to get beat up, escape with a win or DQ to keep the belt. So people were somewhat satisfied he got beat up, although not really because he won or kept the belt. Roddy, when he was on was great. I loved the voice cracking when he really got excited. Sometimes it felt too forced, but as I said, I really liked Roddy Piper. He is a legend and it seems he was under used. Mr. T??

I say Ric Flair simply because I enjoyed his promos more and matches as well. I like JCP and territory more than WWE. Hanging out with friends imitating Flair and others was fun. But we'd always laugh at some one acting like Flair. I am able to not allow Flair's recent constant reappearing hurt his image of what he was. Not saying others are, just that in their prime, I like Flair more.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Do you remember them being WWE Tag Team Champions in 2006?

Ric for me. These 2 are among the best heels ever.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Flair is a legend but Hot Rod is the one for me! The man is pure electricity.

Re: Ric Flair vs. Roddy Piper

Flair by far. I HATED watching Piper. I hated his promos, it was nothing but incessant babbling, random thoughts that didn't have a point, he was annoying as hell, he wasn't funny, he wasn't entertaining, he was like a belligerent uncle that you have to shoe out the door 25 minutes into Christmas dinner. He was like the wrestling version of Robin Williams stand up routine except unlike Piper, Robin Williams actually did the incoherent random babbler gimmick well and made it entertaining, whereas Piper is what you're left with if you take that act and remove all the charm and humor from it.

In ring, it's not even close that it's Flair. I've never seen Piper do a single thing of note in the ring.

I'm so happy he never won the world title.
