WWE honors 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper with moving tribute on Monday Night Raw

WWE aired their tribute to the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper on the August 3 episode of Monday Night RAW. In summation, it highlighted all of Piper’s great moments from his life and in the WWE and evoked all of the emotions that you wanted it to. Quite frankly, it was the catharsis that many fans have needed since Piper’s death.

Fans weren’t alone in that. The video tribute aired after the entire roster was gathered on stage for a 10-bell salute. The roster left the stage once the video came on, save for two individuals who stood side by side and watched the tribute on stage:

That would be the owner, Vince McMahon, and COO, Triple H, of the WWE standing on the stage watching the tribute to Piper. That brings on a whole other wave of emotions.

Piper’s influence and impact on the WWE and the wrestling business as a whole is massive. The respect that’s been shared by many of his fellow wrestlers and co-workers and even the respect shown by Vince and Triple H in that picture shows the type of man that wrestling and the world lost in Piper.
