Happy 59th Birthday, Rowdy Roddy Piper [PHOTOS, VIDEOS]

‚ By 


On this day in 1954 Roderick George Toombs was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan,Canada. He eventually became a household name in the WWF and WCW as the now infamous Rowdy Roddy Piper.

From his Intercontinental Championship run in 1992, to his historic boxing match with Mr. T at WrestleMania, his wrestling career was one for the ages. Throw in his impressive work in cinema and you’ve got yourselves a bona fide icon.

We wanted to celebrate Hot Rod’s birthday today but since he turned down our lunch offer, all we could do was pull some classic photos, videos and a few cool eBay items to commemorate his 59th birthday. Join us in Piper’s Pit as we take a trip down memory land with Roddy.

“Only in America! Where else can a skinny 15 year old kid come down and become champion?!”
