Wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has died at the age of 61.

Piper, born Roderick George Toombs, died from cardiac arrest in his sleep at his home in Hollywood on Thursday night. He was discovered on Friday.

Piper was a wrestling icon, one of the biggest stars in the WWE back in the ’80s, and even wrestled in “Wrestlemania I” back in 1985, squaring off against Hulk Hogan and Mr. T.

Piper also starred in the Joh Carpenter cult classic “They Live”, he played a drifter who realizes, while looking through a pair of special sunglasses, that alien invaders are attempting to brainwash Earthlings. Desperately, the drifter tries to share his new knowledge, but everyone thinks he’s crazy.


Piper battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2006, but later said he had beaten the cancer.

In recent months, Piper was active in the charity Stand For The Silent, an organization aimed at honoring the victims of bullying and bringing awareness to the issue.

Piper is survived by wife Kitty and their four children.
