R.I.P. Roddy Piper 1954 ~ 2015

WWE Hall of Fame Superstar, Roddy Piper, has passed away at the age of 61. Born Roderick Toomes, a Canadian wrestler who used his Scottish family roots as a character trait and became one of the biggest heels of the 1980’s. Although, I’ll always remember him for his role in John Carpenter’s alien indoctrination cult classic “They Live” (1988)

They Live 1988

Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens.
