Jimmy is still around. I don't know if he wrestles, but, he does appearances.

Mick Foley has a federation that has a lot of the old school guys show up on the East Coast, PWS, (Pro Wrestling Syndicate).

If you go here, you can check out their page, too, GooeyKablooie. Or not.

Re: 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper Dead At 61

How can that type of wrestling be classed as sport when the outcome is predetermined.

When Vince lost the WWF initials to the World Wildlife Foundation, he changed the initials to, WWE, for World Wrestling Entertainment.

I have no clue why it was changed from WWWF to WWF in the first place. Actually, I do. Worldwide is one word.

It's become a soap opera with crappy music, for the most part, and a lot of pyro.

I can see that it's a hard form of entertainment I won't try to take that away from them, but the theatrics and the forgone conclusion who the winner will be never appealed to me.

Re: 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper Dead At 61

This shit makes me sad. 61 is too young to go for one of the most memorable heels of my youth. I loved this guy back in the early 80's. So much personality. Fuckin shame.

I did not get my neck injured in the ring though. ;)

Ron had back surgery. He is very nice. He remembered me from years ago. I had never met him then, but, he always nodded his head or waved when he saw a friend and me.

The three of them played football, too. I guess the reputation could be true, but, I have never had any issue with him or most of the guys or females.

Anyone who got rude, got punched or slapped, but, when I was in my 20s, I didn't realize how dangerous that could have been.
I was a kid growing up in the 80's, and I loved wrestling..... All my friends did too, I can remember staying up to watch Saturday nights main events on TV.

Re: 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper Dead At 61

I'm surprised that they really didn't talk about it on the News

Just happened upon this, GooeyKablooie. It was the Boogie Woogie Man.

Damn! I wish I could edit these things! It's, "Girls, Girls, Girls!"
