-Wrestled his first match at the age of 15 against Larry Hennig and lost in ten seconds.
-While Piper and Buddy Rose were competing in PNW, Rose ripped Piper's kilt and set it on fire. Piper left the ring, where at the time he was teaming with Stan Stasiak against the Sheepherders
, and charged up to the Crow's Nest to try and put the fire out. Ironically by shaking the kilt, he caused part of the "No Smoking" sign to be burned away. At the time, Portland Wrestling aired on a delay at 8:30 PM. Several people watching the TV show called the fire department about the fire. When the fire department showed up nobody was there. From that time on every Portland Wrestling broadcast started with a "Pre-Taped" graphic on the bottom of the screen.
