The Big Winner is...

BORICUA!

Indeed, the mystery movie was Predator 2. Here's the rest of the ad! (Alas, I did not live in Los Angeles in 1997, so I can't really speak to its veracity)

LAWL

I remember watching that first time on tv (omg I'm old) and think "Did he [Roddy] just do that? Oh my God!" Such drama. Such DRAMA!

Roddy Piper's eternal contribution to bad-assery (from "They Live"):
"I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass...and I'm all out of bubblegum."

Pistol Pete (not to be confused with Pistol Pez Whatley) - This is still my favorite Piper moment ever. If not favorite TV moment.

I just spent 30 min watching his old videos, omg he was funny. A total heel.

For the record, I have never lost a match in Columbus, Ohio. Phew.

"But you're a lousy wrestler, it's as simple as that.

I might be a lousy wrestler, but I'm still in there. And I got no room for (SMASH)

Just when they think they've got the answers, I change the questions"

That hack Shakespeare never could write something so stirring.

That poor bastard probably got paid $22 to allow Roddy to rip apart his dignity and self-esteem in front of the camera.

I still loved watching the Superfly do his Splash from the top of the cage at MSG. All kidding aside, despite how fake it all is, there's a lot of practice and showmanship that goes into this crap.
