The Big Story: We’re all still mourning the death of WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

Between the Ropes has breaking news audio on Piper’s death of a heart attack at the age of 61.

It’s heartbreaking losing another great of the ring. WWE has shared a few of Piper’s biggest moments on YouTube. Rest in power, Roddy.

When Piper left the WWF for Hollywood in the 1980s, the WWF made this tribute video to Hot Rod set to “My Way.”

WWE did a 10 bell salute to Piper at last night’s live event in San Diego.
