    He's starting treatment right away. Hope they found it in time and can get the tumour.

    There's a "They Live" joke to be made here, but I don't feel like going to Hell.

    Best of luck to Roddy. I always loved Piper's Pit.

    My favorite Roddy Rowdy Piper moment was when the Mountie tried to hurt him with the Shock Stick on Saturday Night Main Event, but Piper just stood there impervious. Then he kicked him, stole the shock stick, and gave the Mountie a little taste of his own medicine.

    Afterwards, he pulled off his shirt to reveal a "SHOCK PROOF" protector underneath.

    That's too bad. It would have been appropriate for your 6,616th post. :D

    He's not Scottish, just a Canuck?! This is like finding out there's no Santa Claus.

    Hey, the Shock Stick was one of the WWF's 36 or so legal weapons at one time. And best of luck to Mr. Toombs. A brilliant villain who turned face long enough to tear apart Morton Downey Jr.

    I remember when he went from bad guy to good guy many years ago. I suddenly was willing to buy those WWF ice cream bars of his, not the Hulk and Andre ones.

    Always liked Roddy. My favorite moment was when he helped get Ric Flair "committed" to a mental hospital.

    I wish it was just another wrestling angle. Roderick Toombs, get healthy soon.
