"Rowdy" Roddy Piper dead at 61
« on: August 01, 2015, 02:56:49 AM »
Died on the 30th, found on the 31st...  The Rowdy Roddy Piper of WWE Fame and infamous for the oft quoted Duke Nukem line "I've come here to kick ass and chew bubble gum...  and I'm all out of gum."   Decades of being an Entertainer both in the squared circle as a wrestler, and as an actor, father of 4, grandfather of 4...

In honor of his death, I decided to stream They Live tonight, turn out was awful, but that's alright I suppose.  Here's a Youtube embed for anyone interested.

Hot Rod was the greatest heel ever. He blended his own traits and charisma into his character and went off the rails.
Punk, Michaels, Roberts, Macho Man, Flair....all behind Piper.
What a talent he was.
I must add though, if we count managers/announcers, Heenan wins, hands down
