by 5 years ago


Earlier today, news broke that WWE star “Rowdy” Roddy Piper died at the age of 61.

The wrestling legend was the inspiration for UFC Champion Ronda Rousey’s nickname, “Rowdy.”

Rousey took to Instagram to thank Piper for the name and dedicated tomorrow’s fight to him.

“Thank you for the name…. And so much more…. Will do it justice and do you proud tomorrow…. This one’s for you Roddy….”

Just last week Roddy Piper talked about Ronda Rousey on the Rich Eisen show and told the story about the time Ronda asked to use the “Rowdy” name
