Wrestling Legend Roddy Piper Dies

Wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who was once named one of the top villains in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment, died at age 61 on Thursday. The star was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006, but had been declared cancer free. His death was apparently of natural causes. John Carpenter, who directed Piper in the film They Live, wrote a tribute on Facebook saying, "He was a great wrestler, a masterful entertainer and a good friend."
