The following is a piece from an interview with Roddy Piper:
"I took a stand right up to McMahon's face so, yeah, he fired me," explains Piper. "I still think he fired me because he hated how I refused to stop calling him Vincent. You're gonna have to live with that, Vincent, unless you want to come down to the Ring Of Honor and do a double-shot that weekend! Hey, if McMahon finally gets the guts enough to do a "Piper's Pit," like he's made every other poor wrestler do, it would probably be the biggest thing they'd have on Wrestlemania. And if I do that, I'll buy a ticket for everyone who comes to Ring Of Honor at The Rex Plex in Elizabeth on Saturday, and we'll all go to Madison Square Garden on Sunday!"
