    This is a shame, he fought so hard to combar his first illness and now he's diagnose again. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

    To me he's one of the best heels of all time, he might be loved by the fans today, but back in the 80's everyone hated, which is a good thing because it means that he did his job well. He wasn't the best in the ring but he could handle himself. He excelled on the microphone though, he was one of the best in the business on the stick.

    I loved him as the bad guy, and the simplicity of some of his in ring antics, standing there and poking someone in the eye always made me laugh reminded me of the Three Stooges.

    Pipers Pit was always entertaining to watch too, but like you said he was hated by fans for some of the stuff he did, hitting Jimmy Snuka with a coconut if I remember rightly erned him a whole host of new people hating him.
    He always looked like he could handle himself in an all out brawl as well as wrestle, he will be missed when he passes.

    That's funny you know all this stuff Wolfheart, the reason being is because we never see you posting in the Wrestling section.

    But I agree with you Piper's Pit was great, that's when he was at his best in my opinion, the beating he gave Snuka was priceless and so entertaining. I'll always remember when he took that fire extinguisher and turned it on Morton Downey Jr because he kept blowing smoke in his face. That was priceless.

    He was by far the best heel to ever step foot in the squared circle.
