That might be slightly overblown as Piper worked a bunch of TV matches as soon as he came in. He was certainly being positioned as the stickman for Schultz and others though. Maybe they were leaning towards a Piper's Palace sort of group with Piper as the weiner for brawnier heels to shine. Plans were changing by the day at that point.Idk. WWE has a long, long history of not knowing how to use undersized heels. Longtime fans (@BruiserBrody ) will note that they originally brought in Roddy Piper to be a manager in late '83/early '84.
(Now Brody is going to use his Wisconsin redneck rage to murder me for comparing Adam Cole to Hot Rod)
The PPV must have left an impression with the WWE brass. Vince is gonna angry for a while.
