We lost yet another May Star. I want to give a different view of Piper rather than WWF Era.
Roddy Piper during the Mid Seventies Wrestled in Luche Libra at the Olypic Auditorium.
In Chicago, Lucha Libra was on Channel 26 WCIU TV. The announcers would speak Spanish announcing matches with Stars like Black Gordman and Goliath, yet a young American Star was making noise and building a road to fame.
Piper was bizzare to some, a little "Off", yet fans could relate to him.
He stood up to so called tough guys and educated them on being streetwise.
Afterall, to wear a Kilt into the ring took someone a little off and tough!
Rather than Pipers Pit, I know I'll always remember Piper being introduced by The Great Jimmy Lennon Sr at The Olympic Auditorium.
Not many things come with a Guarantee but if you were a fan, you could be guaranteed that you never knew what to expect from him.
Piper always gave his best and the fans appreciated it.
We'll say goodbye to this ring veteran, but he will not be forgotten on CPW
