Definitely in my 'Top 5' in terms of favorites, right there with Bruno, Flair, Superstar Billy Graham


Definitely in my Top 3 when it comes to pro wrestling.  
Everybody talks about Hogan being the person who moved wrestling into the mainstream. Piper deserves some of that credit, also.  
So young in years, but his cocaine usage was legendary in the 80's even for pro wrestling standards. 

RIP  R.P. (The Legend Killer)

Such a great guy. I can't say enough good about him. Went out of his way to take care of fans at meet-and-greets. He will be missed.

The first wrestler I really hated, but by the 1990s, he was one of my favorites.

It's the elephant in the room, but do the doctors really know what years of steroid and cocaine abuse does to the heart? Yes, Piper was on the juice in the mid 80s. He definitely "bulked up", as all the boys did. Not going to crucify him over that.

I've been thinking about this one a lot tonight since the news ruined my dinner.  This is probably the big one for me.  I was a fan of wrestling when I was really young at the tail end of the Backlund days and into the beginning of Hulkamania, and I always say that my first favorite wrestler was Masked Superstar, but I was still very much a casual fan then.  It's safe to say that I became obsessed with wrestling in 1985-1986 and it was because of one guy and one guy only: Roddy Piper.  If he wasn't in the WWF at the time, I don't know if I would've stuck with it as I got older.  I would look forward all week to a 3 minute segment of Piper's Pit and that was pretty much the highlight of the shows to me. 

I always cheered for the heels as a kid and was excited when Piper finally turned face, and everything surrounding the build-up to Piper-Adonis at WMIII, all those Pit and Flower Shop segments, basically stand out as my favorite stuff.  I lost my voice cheering for Piper at WMIII even though I was only watching on closed circuit TV, about 1,500 miles from where the event was taking place, and the match in retrospect was a 7-minute clunker, but at the time that was what I was there to see, not Hogan-Andre or even Savage-Steamboat.  I still remember that "last" Pit where he took the pictures off the set and they played the "My Way" music video, the first great WWF video I ever saw.          

It was sad when he lost his mic skills around the time of his WCW comeback, but I'll always remember him as the best talker in the history of the business, and even as crazy as he got in later years, I always enjoyed the very genuine sense of danger and absolute batshit craziness that he gave off, even right to the end on Legends House when he wandered off into the night for no particular reason and I figured that it couldn't be scripted because it's just too crazy for anyone to think of scripting. 

R.I.P. Hot Rod.  It's officially the end of an era where no one else in wrestling, or in any other walk of life, will ever be allowed to do or say half the shit you got away with.

I can already tell that the media storm on this will eclipse the coverage for Dusty, which was remarkable in and of itself.  Adding to that is the fact that Ronda Rousey has a very hyped fight tomorrow night, and every sports outlet in the world has picked up on her tweet that she's dedicating it to the man whose nickname she took (and asked permission to use).

"Thank you for the name.... And so much more.... Will do it justice and do you proud tomorrow.... This one's for you Roddy...."

So does this get Hogan back in the fold in record time? Enough of this PC shit, Hogan certainly has to be a huge part of every tribute and retrospective thst WWE airs on Piper over the next 2 weeks, including new interviews. Let's grow up and be serious here.  It's slightly heartening that even the biggest degenerates that make up the mainstream media are printing Hogan's quotes without mentioning his recent scandal.
