Goodbye Roddy Piper

10:30 a.m. August 11. I woke up to pay my respects to Rowdy Roddy Piper who passed away last week on July 31.

It was an endearing and loving gesture; one I have no doubt Roddy would have loved. But even as I took a part of this moment...

WWE: Remembering Roddy Piper

Roderick Toombs was larger than life. No one ever questioned Piper’s size. Even billed at six feet, and battling the likes of the overhyped Hulk Hogan or the under-appreciated Dustin Rhodes; even in the New York office that has looked to big, strong men, and bigger heels, since the 1960’s; even when his mouth ….
