Match......Sheephearders vs Piper & Stasiak with Dutch Savage as referee (second & third falls joined in progress) During this match is another legendary moment found in these long lost tapes as Playboy Buddy Rose steals Roddy Piper's kilt & sets it on fire in the TV interview area ("The Crow's Nest") & it looked for a time like the fire could get out of control. The show was shown on a 90 minutes tape delay. Some people watching didn't know this & called the Portland Fire Department when this was on TV. When the PFD arrived, the Portland Sports Arena was locked up, dark & empty.
Interview...Piper with his burnt kilt 12/1/79
