Details On Roddy Piper Reportedly At Odds With WWE Officials, Why He Isn’t In WWE 2K14

WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper has reportedly been arguing with company officials for the better part of the past year and their problems were only resolved some time in the last 6-7 weeks. This is why Piper is only featured in the WWE 2K14 video game as the special referee in the 30 Years of WrestleMania mode and in Superstar heads.

When it came time for Piper to sign a contract for the Legends House reality TV show, the contract made talents agree not to do any other wrestling or MMA shows before Legends House debuted and for a certain number of days after it aired. As you know, Legends House was filmed a while back and still hasn’t aired. Piper refused to sign the deal because his son is a MMA fighter and Piper would not do anything that could potentially put his sons career in jeopardy down the line. Piper wanted to make sure he would be able to use his name and likeness to help his son in any way.

This issue between Piper and company officials was only recently worked out because they want him to be a part of WrestleMania XXX.
