  1. UPDATE: Roddy Piper DOES NOT have terminal cancer

    I’m shocked. I just signed into twitter and saw a tweet from @wrestlingradio that said “WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has Terminal Cancer.” According to their article, Piper’s lymphoma has come back and it’s looking as if the WWE Hall of Famer hasn’t got much time left.

    I’m at a loss for words. I’m speechless. I can’t put what I’m feeling right now into words…

    Earlier today, I posted an article sourcing a wrestling-radio.com article stating that “Rowdy” Roddy Piper’s cancer had returned and that the legend hadn’t had much time left.  Pro Wrestling Insider has posted a story (here) stating that rumors of Piper’s impending demise have been greatly exaggerated. He is in need of assistance at home though, he needs assistance for caregivers for Parkinson’s disease.   It seems as though the wrestling-radio story had it’s origins on the same site – and likely from the very same person – that started the false rumor that Chris Benoit was dating Victoria weeks before his death.  PWI’s article does state that Piper is taking time off to deal with health issues, he is not dying.  We here at BoredWrestlingFan are breathing a huge sigh of relief, and I would like to personally apologize for adding to the number of sites reporting this awful rumor.
