Teal Piper wants to keep her father’s legacy alive. The daughter of the late WWE legend Rowdy Roddy Piper says that when she received an opportunity to get herself involved in the All Elite Wrestling’s Women’s Casino Battle Royal, she didn’t even flinch. Here’s what she has to say.

“I’ve been looking forward to [the reveal] for months,” Piper told Newsweek. “I started training with Women of Wrestling out of Long Beach before that, so I’ve been trying to keep my mouth shut to keep it exciting. But yea, that really came out of left field for most people, which of course makes me happy.”

When asked about how the AEW opportunity came about, Piper admits that it was something that she had thought about for a very long time. She makes it no secret that this was something she was willing to be fully invested in. She further explained, “Once I decided that, I looked around at my options and I think that company, they are great people over there, and it felt like the right time. We traveled a bit and I don’t want to go too far into that right now. It just sort of happened. August 31, it is very exciting for me to already be in the ring by then.

Piper also said that one of the reasons why she decided to join the world of sports entertainment is because she always had an admiration for her father while she was growing up. She said, “And for me it wasn’t until he passed when I felt a part of me die and another part of me was reborn, which is really creepy sounding. But that’s how it feels [laughs]. And the more time that passed, I longed to reconnect with him, and that’s an area of his life that he was very protective of. As a heel, back in his day, he was on his guard. People tried to kill him and all that, so he was very protective of our family.”
