Re: RIP "Rowdy" Roddy Piper

One of my favorite wrestlers growing up, he and Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and half a dozen others helped make my childhood fun and unforgettable.

Rest in peace, Roddy. You will be missed.

Yeah, I remember that movie. It was a schlocky, popcorn munching fun time. Roddy didn't do too bad an acting job in it at all.

I enjoyed his antics in the world of wrestling, when I used to watch wrestling.

RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper.

I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Still one of the greatest lines of all time.

Indeed.

My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Roddy many, many times in the late 80s and early 90s, when the then WWF would come to the Richfield Coliseum. I still remember him at the very first Survivor Series, in 1987.

Thanks for all the great memories, Roddy. You will be missed.

Aw man... the world just got a lot less... Rowdy. I used to collect his stickers when I was a kid. He'll be missed.

This kills me, RIP Hot Rod. In just the last few weeks, he's been feuding in real life with Steve Austin over his crazy drunken podcast after Steve forced an episode to be pulled due to Roddy having Will Sasso do a devastating impression of Austin. Rowdy to the end.

Wonder if Ronda Rousey who named herself Rowdy after getting permission from Piper will honor him sometime at her fight tommorrow.

Time to dig out the They Live DVD I think.
