Legends of Wrestling President Louis “Uncle Louie” Gregory wrote an editorial for Huffington Post talking about “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s passing and more. You can check out the full article at the link; an excerpt is below.
“Roddy Piper was one of my childhood idols but to the wrestling legends in the suite with me, he was much more. He was a friend. No, he was family. The Nasty Boys were no longer nasty. Jerry exclaimed “we lost Roddy” and Luke burst into tears. I hugged Luke as he sobbed. Knobs began to cry. Jerry cried. We all cried, he all hugged. We all missed Roddy. It was as if at that moment, we forget the world around us and as we mourned together, I closed by eyes and in my mind, I popped open that lunch box, put on my kilt and returned to the past to say good bye to Roddy. All Legends go to Heaven, some just go too soon…God speed Hot Rod!”
