Default 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper has Passed Away

At 61.

Not a good last few months for wrestling icons...

I had the honor of meeting him last year. Such a great guy. His line was one of the slowest because he took so much time talking with each and every fan. Truly a man who loved his job and his fans. This one hurts a lot...

Man I grew up watching him. I absolutely loathed him as a kid because he was mostly a heel. It wasn't until I got older I realized the genius it took to be a great "heel" and he was so good at it, but overall he was just a damned entertaining guy to watch.

In heaven, chewing bubble gum and kicking ass. R.I.P. Hot Rod. You were one of a kind.

They Live is one of my absolute favorite movies. If you haven't seen it, it's like $9 on Amazon and worth every penny. Thanks Roddy.

Wow, this one came as a real shocker. Always figured he'd be one of the guys to live forever. RIP Hot Rod, you will be missed .

This stinks. He was a great guy. The really sad thing is that at age 61 he was considered old in wrestling years. Man I feel like my childhood is dying.

I watched a video about him just a few moments ago, and I honestly felt like crying. There is something about him that made him one of a kind. Most, if not all, wrestlers nowadays have nothing on him when it comes to mic skills.
