Mere days after serving Santino an ample piece of heavily frosted humility and accepting Marella's challenge to an in-ring showdown, the arduous training has already commenced for Jimmy Kimmel's Cousin Sal alongside the "Hot Rod" himself, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. (Check out exclusive photos)

Right now at an undisclosed facility, as you scroll away within WWE.com, Cousin Sal is undergoing Hall of Fame training from one of the most renowned Superstars in sports-entertainment history.

With Jimmy Kimmel on hand as well to encourage his crafty cousin, the kilted WWE Legend is teaching Sal everything he knows -- from sleeper hold to sucker punch. The Rowdy One's regimen may include extending Kimmel's cousin's legs and contorting his meek physique, but rest assured, it's all in attempt to ensure that Sal trains better than Balboa and harder than Holyfield.

No doubt, the cake has been cleaned from the paesan's puss and Santino must be watching his rival's progress closely. With the time and place for their impending match-up still undecided, Marella could even test Cousin Sal's progress, first-hand, this week on Raw.

Should these two Italians and the Scot be in the same building this Monday in Denver's Pepsi Center, our fans might witness a Memorial Day melee. Will their tussle take place live this week on Raw? Tune live to USA Network this Monday at 9/8 CT to find out!
