Saw this a lot but didn’t know what it was about. I think that if Piper actually did make $35k for the payoff against the Sheepherders, it was worth it. Otherwise I think it was wasted in Portland. Think of the publicity he would have gotten doing that on WTBS

I'm fairly certain he duplicated this incident a few years later, but can't remember where.  There are 2 broken beer bottle promos by Piper, but I think this is the original and the better one.

Rick Martel did one in Montreal for International Wrestling in 1986 hyping matches vs. Steve Strong too.

This particular promo was actually from the Vancouver promotion. Portland was the second time.

Better then anything that happened in the WWWF/WWF at the time.
