Yikes..

Another wrestler bites the dust too young.

I was just reading an article that went though a long list of the professional wrestler who have passéd away fairly young in life .

A lot of those guys back in his day were using all kinds of stuff to bulk up their muscles .....

Stuff seems to come back on them.

RIP.  Rowdy Roddy

Yea this was really shocking

It was nature of the business back then.  It demanded it.

It's a sad year for wrestling so far.

Outside of the Hogan story, we already lost Dusty Rhodes, and now Hot Rod.

I remember when I was a kid, really hating on Roddy Piper. I thought he was the most despicable human being ever lived. Never liked him was really down right angry that he's a loudmouth and a prick. Until I understood what wrestling is and realized hoe good a performer Piper was. He's off the charts with his promos and solid in the ring. You he has the passion, and every segment he was on he was intense, well, except maybe the Goldust angle when he was a little to shy doing it.

RIP Hot Rod. I will sorely miss the Piper's Pit.

RIP, sad stuff guy. At least he lived a fairly awesome life. I'll sure Steroids didn't help his life span.

Piper was so good on the mic.  Dude was the most hated man in wresting in the mid 90s.  Then he comes back and becomes one of the most beloved babyfaces in the biz.  Dude could work a crowd like no other.

I loved how obnoxious he got in his younger days

Playing the bagpipes ,  shouting yelling at the fans ,  kicking the announcers can ...

Taunting ,,ranting ....frantic movement......he was the first public ....kid with iDS..... ;D

Great memories from the Golden Age of wresting
