WWE’s Moving Tribute to ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper Was Simply Perfect
The WWE said goodbye to one of its all-time greats on Monday night.
WWE Raw opened with a tribute to "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who passed away last week in his sleep at the age of 61. The audience watched a compilation of photos and videos from Piper's life, including, of course, his memorable moments in the ring and his penchant for stirring the pot with his famed trash talk. Heck, there's even a clip of him in the cult film They Live.
Set to the song "Hold on Tight" by Greg Holden, it's hard not to watch this and get a little misty-eyed. A great personality and electrifying star of 1980s WWE (when it was still the WWF), Piper will be definitely missed and this video certainly captures all that he brought to the table.
