    Whaaaaat! That's shitty. He was an awesome wrestler and a fun actor too. Loved when he was on Its Always Sunny.

    RIP

    That was the Ultimate Warrior.

    This year hasn't been good for the legends of wrestling. First Dusty Rhodes, and now Hot Rod.

    Came to post this. Such an epic quote. Even Duke Nukem stole it.

    RIP Roddy Piper. One of my fave wrestlers in the WWF back when I watched it as a kid. Even though he was a "bad guy," for a bit. 61 is young.

    Well this came out of nowhere. He just gave a statement on Hulk Hogan. RIP Rowdy.

    My favorite bit with Piper is when they filmed the live-action bumpers for the WWF Cartoon. I forget what was happening, but I think a woman was stranded in her car and asked him for help, as he was naturally just walking by. Probably in his kilt. And she's all desperate for help, so he responds by taking on a high voice and pantomiming like he's got big curly hair, like "OH NO! I'M A WOMAN IN SO MUCH TROUBLE!" Mean for no reason. It was hilarious.
