To me Roddy Piper will be remembered for three things; the first of which was his loud mouth character in the 1980's. The Piper's Pit segments were a great example of that, most notably the Jimmy Snuka one where he smashed the coconut over his head. The second thing is his WrestleMania 21 Piper's Pit segment with Stone Cold Steve Austin and Carlito, that segment was one of my favorite parts of that show. The third thing isn't exactly positive but it was the most recent thing to involve Piper, his Podcast One war with Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Just thinking about it, Stone Cold Steve Austin and CM Punk are basically rehashes of the "Hotrod" character only (mainly in Austin's case) they were more bold. So to Roddy Piper I thank you for giving us a stellar career of entertainment both inside and outside of the ring. You will always be remembered, now lets hope we don't get any more major wrestler deaths in the near future.
