Roddy Piper was introduced as a surprise guest during Mickey Rourke's interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Wednesday. Piper praised The Wrestler and said he cried while attending the premier because the movie hit home.

Powell's POV: Piper has become a semi-regular on the show since he did the bit with Cousin Sal. They also showed footage of Piper applying the sleeper hold to one of Kimmel's friends.

The subject of steroids came up again during Rourke's interview and he didn't deny taking them for his role as Randy "The Ram" Robinson. He also told a story about director Darren Aronofsky telling him that he would be required to cut himself while filming. He said Aronofsky backed down once they got to that scene, but Rourke took it as a challenge and insisted upon "gigging."
