Late Christmas Gift: The Ghosts visit Ebenezer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper

On December 20th in 1985, the WWF’s midweek, hour-long talk show, Tuesday Night Titans aired a parody skit inspired by the Charles Dicken’s classic, “A Christmas Carol,” starring “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.  For the unfamiliar, Tuesday Night Titans (or TNT; named after the WWF’s then-parent company, Titan Sports) was a  a loose parody of your typical late-night talk show, hosted by WWF Chairman Vince McMahon and “sidekick” Lord Alfred Hayes conducting interviews with the WWF superstars (while they remained in character) and participating in several series of skits. In this skit, the WWF’s bad boy, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper plays the role of Ebenezer Scrooge and is being visited by the three spirits, and — of course — hilarity ensures. Check out the entire four-minute skit after the break.
