WWE Legend Rowdy Roddy Piper Died

Spread the Word!

I don’t usually write about wrestling because I don’t like the direction that it’s gone down, but Roddy Piper was one of my childhood heroes growing up and when I learned that he passed away it felt like I lost a friend. 

Rowdy Roddy Piper was a wrestling icon. His disputes with Hulk Hogan, and Jimmy Superfly Snuka are some of my fondest memories of him.

Piper_3In 2005 Roddy Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and was listed in the top 50 villains of all time. His passing has left a mark on WWE and his millions of fans around the world.

Rest in peace Roderick George Toombs. There will never be another performer like you and wrestling world will never forget you. Roddy Piper was 61 years old.

Here’s my favorite Roddy Piper moment

Update:

The official statement is that Roddy Piper died from Cardiac Arrest in his sleep on Thursday night. He was discovered on Friday.
