WWE Legend ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper Dies at 61

WWE legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper died after suffering a heart attack in his Hollywood home. He was 61.
Born Roderick George Toombs, Piper joined the WWE in 1984 after getting his start with the NWA in the late 1970s. He and Hulk Hogan met in landmark matchups including MTV’s “The War to Settle the Score” and the first WrestleMania, where Piper and “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff took on Hogan and Mr. T.

Piper’s agent Jay Schacter confirmed the news, first reported by TMZ, to Variety.

“Rod passed peacefully in his sleep last night,” Schacter said in an email. “I am shocked and beyond devastated.”
Piper had suffered a bout of Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006 but was reportedly deemed cancer-free last November.

The wrestler had also made a foray into film acting, starring in John Carpenter’s sci-fi pic “They Live,”
“Devastated to hear the news of my friend Roddy Piper’s passing today. He was a great wrestler, a masterful entertainer and a good friend,” Carpenter wrote on Facebook.

WWE stars and friends such as Chris Jericho and ‘The Iron Shiek’ also shared their condolences on Twitter.

Sorry to hear of the passing of my friend and Wrestlemania rival #RoddyPiper. One of the greatest who… https://t.co/WkGjYehXim

The wrestling icon was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005. He was named one of the WWE’s top 50 villains, as well.

Piper is survived by his wife, Kitty, and their four children

Bummer, I used to like wrestling back then and loved that movie too. I wonder if they'll say anything at UFC since Rousey is in the main event and got permission from him to use her nickname.

Sad news indeed.

I wonder, though, about this line of "he passed peacefully in his sleep". Do you not wake up if you have a heart attack in the middle of the night? Genuine question.

When Dusty Rhodes went, I was thinking "Crazy, he seemed full of life even recently in FCW". Now, Piper. I wasn't a wrestling fan during their generations but they brought wrestling to where it was. Piper, although hardly a fellow Scotsman, was on WWE very recently and seemed like he had as much life in him as ever. Ultimate Warrior, Dusty Rhodes and Roddy Piper, upstairs just got filled with some helacious chair shots. RIP.

I never liked his character as a kid. However, when ai I got older and watched back some wrestling for nostalgic purposes, I thought Roddy was awesome. Especially on the mic. Unrivalled in that respect in the 80s. Legend.
