Pro wrestler and actor (is there a difference?) "Rowdy" Roddy Piper died of a heart attack at age 61 yesterday in Hollywood, CA.
Part of his character in the wrestling ring was to wear as red plaid kilt.
His fisticuff scene in "They Live" is considered by many as the best done by non-stuntmen in film history. He had a famous improvised line in that film that many have copied: "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick [censored]. And I’m all out of bubble gum." He also appeared in the cult classic "Hell Comes to Frogtown".

One of the best promo/talkers in wrestling history & had one of the best talk shows ever in "Piper's Pit".


It's gonna be an emotional WWE RAW this week when they pay tribute him.
