Roderick “Roddy” George Toombs 1954-2015
Farewell and RIP to Roderick George Toombs known to the professional wrestling and film worlds as “Rowdy Roddy Piper”. Piper was already a legend in professional wrestling as one of the 80s top heels with his battles against Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka and Hulk Hogan. He then made an equal splash in the B-movie world with roles in Hell Comes To FrogTown and John Carpenter’s cult classic They Live. “Hot Rod” passed away today from cardiac arrest and will be missed by wrestling and movie fans alike, all over the world.
