The Pit Goes Coconuts

March 28, 1984

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper becomes infamous for his “Piper’s Pit” talk show, where he grills Superstars. The most well-known edition of the Pit comes when “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka joins Piper. Hot Rod berates Snuka, throwing bananas and pineapples at the man from Fiji. “Superfly” calls Piper out on his shenanigans and has a coconut cracked over his head, setting off one of WWE’s most famous rivalries.
