Piper's discussion slightly makes up for the lack of NWA talk on his DVD but not much as they did discuss his role as a color commentator right besides Gordon Solie, his Starrcade '83 match, his promo ability, being able to cross over as a successful actor, and his wrestling ability. Funk's discussion started off with a typical "well, that's Terry Funk" story about the 4th of July & hand gernades along with Dusty telling a story about a recent match they had that was so crazy that Dusty didn't even want to say the town's name, his family history, and the politics behind his NWA reign amongst other things. Unfortunally, this is one of the flops discussion wise because they started getting off subject of Funk & discussing other wrestling related items & this was the shortest roundtable discussion throughout the whole DVD series.
Roddy Piper vs. Paul Orndorff - This match was exactly as you expected, it was just a street fight with ropes around it as you can count on one hand the number of actual wrestling moves they did.Read more ›
The roundtable discussion first goes to "Rowdy" Roddy Piper for the first 10 minutes or so and then switches to Terry Funk. Mainly, the conversations spoken of are about their influences on the genre of sports entertainment and funny/informative stories on both men (particularly the first time Piper met Ric Flair as Flair was in a VERY compromising position and the time Michael Hayes first met both Terry Funk and Dusty Rhodes/very FUNNY stories)!
As for the bonus features, they break down like this:
Roddy Piper interviews himself - Basically, Piper LITERALLY interviews himself in a very funny talk!
Roddy Piper vs. Ric Flair (Amature "workout") - This starts out as a friendly workout but when Piper shows up Flair, Flair gets dirty and cheap shots him while he's down in an amature position. From there, Piper actually pins Flair, thus putting him in line for a future title shot!
Roddy Piper vs. Paul Orndorff - Though Orndorff was known for his scientific wrestling skills, this was a straight up fight! This came off the heels of Piper turning on Paul Orndorff shortly after the first WrestleMania so there was definitely heat here! Match ends in a double countout in a short but exciting match.
Roddy Piper vs. Bob Orton - At this point, Piper had turned fan favorite after "Cowboy" Bob Orton turned on him and joined the late Adrian Adonis and his manager Jimmy Hart.Read more ›

Even though this can be found on WWE Network now, I still like the feeling that I have this in case it disappears.
Quality panel show.
