A friend of mine sent me a picture of Randy Savage, Dusty Rhodes and the Ultimate Warrior welcoming Roddy Piper into the gates of heaven. I could not help but stop for a moment and bite my lip.
As a wrestling purest, the business lost one of the best to ever put on a pair of boots. The fact his death comes so unexpectedly and amid a time where he was dropped by the WWE and after Hulk Hogan has been banished from the company that made both of them superheroes is a bit odd and almost surreal.
As a fan, he will be sorely missed and remembered. I waited to speak about Piper because the loss reminds us all of how great wrestling used to be. Piper was a big part of that. Hopefully, he will be remembered that way as well.
