Earlier in the year, Roddy Piper and Honky Tonk Man were engaged in a war of words. Piper called him an asshole who could sing and dance like his character claims to be able to do. Things settled down a bit between the former WWE stars. Now that Piper is dead, Honky reveals that the two of them had planned on meeting at a wrestling convention to figure out what the issues are and bury the hatchet once and for all.
