Roddy Piper has Cancer. [29 Nov 2006|12:20am]

From wwe.com...

Roddy Piper diagnosed with cancer
November 27, 2006

WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Also known as Hodgkin’s disease, Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a form of cancer found in the body’s lymphatic tissue. The lymphatic system helps filter out bacteria and is important in fighting diseases.

Piper was sent home early from WWE’s early-November tour of the United Kingdom and hospitalized for surgery, where doctors removed a mass at the spinal cord with an enlarged lymph node. The mass was completely removed, but the lymph node was positive for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Radiation therapy is used to treat Hodgkin’s lymphoma; it is an extremely successful procedure, so the prognosis is very good for Piper.

There's also a message on Piper's website from Roddy, but it's down at the moment.

Here's hoping for a speedy and full recovery!

Piper out of Survivor Series [18 Nov 2006|12:47pm]

From WWE.com

Roddy Piper hospitalized
November 17, 2006

WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been hospitalized in Oregon for surgery after being sent home from WWE’s tour of the United Kingdom. Piper’s original diagnosis was kidney stones, however, sources close to the situation say the former World Tag Team Champion’s surgery may be a result of disc problems.

Due to Piper's injury, he will not participate at Survivor Series and will be replaced by a legend to be named later. Ric Flair will now be the lone captain of the legends team and Kenny will captain the Spirit Squad.

Booo-urns! I think that Duggan or Lawler will replace him.

Two new tidbits of news:

1.) The release of the new Piper DVD. I'd say check WWE.com for more information on that.

2.) The making of the film, Sin-Jin Smyth- featuring both Piper and Jonathan Davis. A horror-esque film based on the idea that every Halloween the devil will appear.. Quoting the website, "Every Halloween at Midnight, the Devil simultaneously appears in two places. The High Plains in India and a quiet cemetery in Kansas..." Piper plays the character of U.S. Marshall Trent Polly in the film. For a continued preview of the movie, information, pictures, trailers, etc., visit the website at Sin-Jin Smyth.com. (If that link doesn't work properly, search for it in google and it will be the first site up there.)

This community needs some life, guys. So I bring you a question:

For those of you that have read his book, what is your favorite section/line/etc. from it?


For those who have not read it, what is your favorite Pit quote/topic/convo?

So there. Knock yourselves out.

The Book + The Fan. [05 Aug 2005|07:45am]

I was out and about with my mother yesterday and happened to strike up a conversation with this completely random lady that I've never seen before in my life (other than almost crashing into her in the bathroom minutes before). So we're talking and I'm guessing she was trying to make a cute little kinda "phrase-y" comment: "..that Rowdy Roddy Piper music-" and being my usual self my mouth just kinda dropped all the way to the floor and "OH my GOD YOU LIKE RODDY PIPER?! *squeal*" came out. It was actually kind of embarrassing when I look at it now (I try to refrain from fangirl-like behavior in public), but we had a pretty good conversation about wrestling and stuff afterwards. It was so weird just randomly meeting a fellow fan though.

I also got the In The Pit With Piper book last night. Bwahaa.

Maintainer numero uno, here. :)

Just to kick up some conversation like in the other wrestling-related community I run, I bring you guys a question/topic:

What is your favorite, or in your opinion the best, Roddy Piper moment/match?

And thanks for the appreciation-related comments. I'm glad these two comms are working out pretty well. Do you guys think there should be some pimping for either comm though? ..or was the wwe post good enough and people will just find their way here eventually?

P.S. And give a "hey" to your new co-mod, darkepidemic.

Just wondering... [17 Jul 2005|03:39pm]

[ mood | pleased ]

How many of the people here in this community have read Piper's autobiography? I have read it and I must say that I recommend it to anyone who is a fan. I thought it was really good. I was seriously rolling on the floor laughing because it was so funny at some parts. Other parts were a little depressing, but I must say, it made for some really good reading. So I urge anyone who is a fan of Piper's to pick this one up in hopes that you will enjoy it as much as I did. I think, if I'm not mistaken, I read it in about four days. That's how good it was. It's called "In The Pit With Piper: Roddy Gets Rowdy" for those of you who are interested. Check it out!

I am 28 years old and I have been a fan of wrestling since I was 8. And the first guy I loved was Rowdy Roddy Piper. His mic skills were amazing and he may not be the greatest in the ring but he puts on a good fight.
I cannot stand Hogan, even though I respect him but Hogan has never and never will have a rival like Piper. Piper is the greatest.
I am a fan of heels and even if Piper is a good guy or not he's a tough bastard. Just his presence alone last week on RAW made me hope that Piper would be making more appearances on the show.
Like Ric Flair, he has the crowd from the way he walks to the way he talks. Charisma, something that a lot of these stars are missing today.
The Great Scot, the Hot Rod is the true Immortal One.

It's about time! [15 Jul 2005|03:39pm]

[ mood | excited ]

I was waiting for a Piper community to come along!

Anyway, in short, my name is Jacky and I am 17 years old. I love Roddy Piper and was introduced to his stuff by my mother, who is also a huge fan. I was at the Raw at Continental this past Monday in Jersey, so you can imagine the shock I had when his music hit. I was about to pass out from hyperventilation, but I had to maintain composure for the sake of taking pictures. He is definitely one of my faves, he's just got the all around greatness. I hope to one day meet him, but I think I just might lose my head if I did.

By the way, I just watched his WM8 match with Bret Hart, and I thought it was really good. It's apparent to me that he was at his physical peak around that point in time. What I'm trying to say is, he looked really friggin hot! But that's just me...I have a really huge crush on him.

Well, enough of that. Hopefully things will go rather smoothly in this community. Thanks to the person who created it!
