Dee & I are back to run down our thoughts on last weekend’s Summer Slam festivities including my live experience at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn along with our thoughts on the Summer Slam show, and Danielle’s experience at Monday Night Raw the following night at the Barclays Center. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll probably read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!
Rowdy Roddy Piper.
Where do I even begin?
The world was saddened to hear on Friday that yet another professional wrestler has been taken from us at an age entirely too young. Roddy died of a heart attack in his sleep Thursday night at the age of 61. I didn’t get word of his passing until Friday afternoon when I was on my way home from work and TMZ had reported it. Immediately, my phone started blowing up…friends were posting the story to Facebook, I was getting Twitter notifications, and text messages informing me of this sad story. I continued to play the telephone game, relaying the message on to other wrestling fan friends who I hadn’t heard from and one by one, I kept receiving the same responses from them that I had. I was overcome with just an immense amount of sadness, knowing that yet another piece of my childhood has left us.
