Now I'm sad.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

As someone who never followed wrestling and didn't see They Liveuntil recently, I didn't really know who this guy was until I played Saint's Row 4. But he was pretty funny, so I think I liked him.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Shocking loss, especially after losing Dusty Rhodes last month.  RIP Roddy.

Just when you think you have all the answers, he changes the question.

As tribute to him, Rowdy Ronda Rousey dedicated her match to him.

Ironbite-34 seconds later her opponent was wishing he was still alive.

I'm very late to the party but I wish both Roddy & Dusty well in that "Great Squared Circle In The Sky".

As a kid, I used to watch WWF wrestling a lot and lost interest just before that "Attitude Era" stuff started. I grew up with the mostly family-friendly high-flying live-action Saturday Morning Cartoon of Piper, Rhodes, The Hulkster, Andre, Macho Man, Junkyard Dog, Sgt. Slaughter, Nikolai Volkov, Brutus Beefcake, The Killer Bees, The British Bulldogs, Demolition, etc. I even enjoyed the early 90's stuff with earlier versions of The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Triple H back when he was a snooty fop heel Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

It was like a Saturday Morning Cartoon come to life. It was colorful and goofy. One could pretend for a brief moment to believe "Hey, that guy really has magic Voodoo powers/is undead/whatever". It was mindless fun for the whole family!

Those WWF Wrestler ice cream bars were DELICIOUS, too!....

....I loved those things! When the ice cream truck came along, I would order one.

Then, I lost interest, then, soon after, The Attitude Era began.

Nowadays, I think Pro-Wrestling is really dumb. However I have a big nostalgic soft-spot for the early days I look upon the 1980s-very early 1990s with fondness.
