Never was a big fan of his but he was one of the all time greats.  Props to WWE

I liked the video the first time but with the library of stuff the WWE has on Piper (and on all these wrestlers), how about a montage / clip of some of their greatest matches?  Piper was one of the best over-the-top heels / characters and other than wearing his "Hot Rod" shirts, it'd have been cool to have seen RRP in action instead of some 4 way tag match.  *yawn*

The glaring issue I have with their "tribute" (and I guess I should cut the WWE a bit of slack) is the obvious omission of any of his Hogan matches.  I think we should view HH as a character only and let Terry Bolea hang out to dry and as such, show that legendary Piper's Pit where Hogan & Andre have their trophy comparisons and HH's chain gets snapped off his neck.  The "you're bleeding" line from Piper was so schleppy but so good. 

Still, it's sad to see all these old classic wrestlers pass on and it was nice for the WWE to recognize him.  Didn't hurt that Ronda Rousey dedicated her 34 second beatdown to the Rowdy One either.

I like the tributes but I think they could do better...to me with the passing of Dusty Rhodes and Piper so quickly...I think WWE should be bringing the legends back a little more often other than these "old school Raws"
