WWE pays tribute to Rowdy Roddy Piper with emotional video

Former wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper has been honoured by some of sport’s greats after his untimely death, but the latest tribute tops them all.

The Rock and Ronda Rousey have both shown their appreciation for the cult figure, and now the whole cast of WWE have come together to pay tribute to a popular individual.

Ahead of the latest episode of WWE Raw, dozens of wrestlers joined in a moment’s silence for the kilted Canadian, all donning t-shirts bearing his ‘Hot Rod’ logo as a bagpipe tribute played out.

Highlights of the career of the “original trash talker” followed, and by the end there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
