WOW’s Second Season Premieres Saturday, September 7 at 8pE/5pP on AXS TV
Los Angeles, CA (August 17, 2019) – Jeanie Buss, owner of the groundbreaking all-female wrestling promotion WOW – Women Of Wrestling, announced today that Teal Piper, daughter of beloved pro wrestling trailblazer Rowdy Roddy Piper, is the newest Superhero to join WOW’s expanding roster. Piper will make her professional wrestling debut for WOW at its September 18 & 19 live events in Los Angeles at the Belasco Theater. Following in the footsteps of fellow wrestling legacy and current WOW Champion Tessa Blanchard, who signed with the promotion in 2018, Piper expects to make her mark by delivering bombastic promo skills that not only resembles her father’s famous persona, but will surely create a new generation of Piper fans.
As the talented daughter of the man Ric Flair once called “the most gifted entertainer in the history of professional wrestling,” Piper knows what it takes to put on an unforgettable show. As an actress, she has appeared alongside her father in films such as The Portal and Lights Out. She is also a singer-songwriter with an album set to drop very soon. In 2016, Piper and her brother Colt Toombs Piper completed their father’s unfinished autobiography, Rowdy: The Roddy Piper Story, which he had begun writing shortly before his death.
To prepare for her first foray into WOW’s competitive ranks, Piper is honing her skills inside the squared circle at the WOW training center in Long Beach, CA, under the guidance of head trainer Selina Majors.
“Wrestling has always been a part of me, and while no one can ever replace my dad, I hope to make sure no one ever forgets him,” said Piper.
“WOW is proud to welcome Teal on board as the newest member of our family of Superheroes,” Buss said. “Her father, Roddy, left an indelible mark not only on wrestling, but on countless fans across the world. His spirit is alive and well within her, and the drive she has shown during her training sessions has been truly incredible to watch. WOW is honored to join Teal on her journey, as she pays tribute to Roddy’s legacy while blazing a new trail that is entirely her own.”
