Meanwhile

Hogan still lives,

He must feed on the souls of better wrestlers

RIP Hot Rod.

Seems really out of nowhere, but at the same time not entirely shocking in some ways, kinda getting used to seeing the old timers pass away before their time. :(

His podcast is worth a listen

Great wrestlers have great story's and he has a bunch

My favourite was the time he trolled Mexico by playing there "national anthem" la cucaracha on bag pipes

RIP Piper.

Funnily enough I remember seeing the very strange wife swap he did with Ric Flair. Quite humbling to see the guy totally shunning fame to have a normal family life while Flair was spending money all over the place trying to please shed loads of hanger on's wanting freebies.

Not only was he in They Live -

He was the leader of the "baddies" in that Hulk Hogan cartoon...

Rest in peace Hot Rod.
In Flair's book he writes that Piper was always the last to leave the party.

Not a wrestling fan but They Live is one of my favourite films... That chewing bubble gum line is one of the greatest in cinema history!
He always came across like a good guy whenever i've seen him elsewhere too.

Anyone made any jokes like "They Live... He doesn't?" or is it too soon?
