from tmz.com:

'Rowdy' Roddy Piper suffered a fatal heart attack brought on by a blood clot in his lungs, reports TMZ, which has obtained a copy of the WWE star's death certificate.

The document states that Piper, who passed away at 61, had a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot) that triggered a heart attack.

The clot, explains the death certificate, was likely brought on by the fact that Piper suffered from hypertension for years, which caused chronic high blood pressure that may have resulted in clotting.
