Early reports say Roddy Piper has passed away at the age of 61 from natural causes

Another gone to early if reports are correct .... (I've had an alert from The Dirt Sheet App)

Apparently it's also been Tweeted by Virgil (@TheRealVirgil) and The Iron Sheik (the_ironsheik)

Apparently he died of "Natural Causes"

You might want to give it a better title then "It's happened again"

I've given it a change.

Sad news. Another far too early.

Not a good time for nostalgia. With Savage, Andre, Dusty, and now Roddy dead, plus the blacklisting and disgrace of Hogan, how many more "Rock 'N Wrestling" era stars are left? DiBiase?

Another bit of my childhood gone forever, one of the greatest heels of all time, make no mistake about, he sold WrestleMania, not to Wrestling fans but to the main stream audience, they tuned in to see Hogan and Mr T kick his ass

Seen some cracking tributes and stories, some touching, some funny.

In classic #RoddyPiper fashion, he once again steals the attention away from Hulk Hogan.

Piper to Hogan, 1996.

Genuinely one of the best heels the business has ever seen. Its a sad time to be a wrestling fan this soon after losing Dusty. RIP.

Very sad news. Anytime you hear about a wrestler or athlete from the 80s getting a heart attack, your mind tends to one conclusion. The price of fame is heavy indeed. RIP

Its a real shame, Piper was just an amazing heel and even a good baby face. Will have to go watch "They live" again and I'm going to miss listening to his podcast
RIP Hot Rod
