This is indeed sad, but I just want to say it’s really quite touching that so many here on T Nation think of me when they see Roddy. Really, I mean it.

Upon the sad news, Nards was the first person I thought of.

Sorry Nards.

Roddy went to high school in Winnipeg, as did I. Different years though. We never crossed paths.

Circa 1985 … My first and only in person pro wrestling event … The headliner is a tag team between Piper and Cowboy Bob Orton vs. Superfly Snuka and Ricky Steamboat

Piper stood in the middle of the ring for what seemed like forever getting pelted by drinks and popcorn, arms and tongue out, begging the crowd for more …to which they were only to happy to comply

Showman extraordinaire … RIP

One of the first glitches in the matrix.

One of my favorite promos before the internet when we could still be surprised, seeing piper come out and say “do you think they would have loved you so much if they didn’t hate me?”
