Roddy Piper spent 45 years in the wrestling business before he passed away at the age of 61 in 2015. The WWE Hall of Famer influenced many Superstars who have appeared in WWE over the last decade, including CM Punk and Ronda Rousey.
“He had cold eyes,” Rougeau said. “He wasn’t afraid of anybody, but I never was there when he had an altercation or anything. Actually, to be honest with you, he was so kind to me. When he talked to me, came up to me, a lot like the great Ric Flair, he made me feel like a somebody when I talked to him.”
