Rowdy Roddy Piper Dies At 61 (Video of Piper)

I’ve always been a fan of Roddy Piper. When I was a kid growing up, my dad and I watched wrestling. He was one of our favorites to watch. Learning that he died of cardiac arrest is a real bummer. All the amazing wrestlers of my era are passing away.

I remember watching this video where Piper specifically said, “I’m not going to make 65, let’s just face facts guys.” He didn’t expect to be around long and it’s a damn shame that his prediction came true. Watch him say it in the video below.

Some of my favorite wrestlers who have recently left us are the Macho Man, Ultimate Warrior, and now Roddy Piper.

Our deepest condolences go out to Piper’s family and friends. RIP brother!
