    He was a little bit before my time, but I've seen some of his matches and he was a real entertainer.

    He was great. Peaking just when I got into wrestling (around Wrestlemania 2). Was never my favorite, but I was definitely watching for his matches and of course Piper's Pit. A great heel

    All of the good ones are going. Junkyard Dog, The Ultimate Warrior, one of my all time faves Randy "Macho Man" Savage and now the Rowdy one, Roddy Piper. He was a great heel, and his feud with Hulk Hogan was one of the reasons I got hooked into wrestling way back just before Wrestlemania 1. RIP Hot Rod.

    As great a wrestler / entertainer he was, I will always remember his infamous line from his horror comedy hit "They Live".

    Now this was a guy who wrestled back when I actually loved watching the WWF. I never really watched the WWE, it was the WWF when I loved watching it.

    RIP RRP.

    It's funny, just this week Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat was touring the Atlantic region and was on the ATV news. I always love The Dragon.

    Sad news for sure. He was way before his time. He would have been great in his prime during the attitude era. He was basically Stone Cold 20 years before Austin.

    His autobiography from 15-20 years ago was great reading.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Pavelski, Kopitar, Voracek, Giroux, Little, Benn, Thornton, Galchenyuk, Eriksson Ek, Lucic, Stepan, Simmonds, Dadonov, Lee, Bailey
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, McAvoy, Gostisbehere, Leddy
    Goalies: Price, Murray, Quick

    Legend, no doubt. Best match was at Wrestlemania VII vs Bret Hart for the IC belt.

    I always heard Snuka suffered some permanent damage from that coconut.

    Sadly, 61 in the wrestling industry is like 91 for most others.

    Same here. Not a wrestling fan but knew the big names and Roddy was one of them and was surprised because I knew he wasn't old. He also played in movie or 2 I think.

    I liked Roddy, too bad. 61 is too early.

    I don't remember much of his wrestling days, but I loved him as the Maniac on It's Always Sunny.
