WWE honored “Rowdy” Roddy Piper with a tribute on Monday Night Raw highlighting the late wrestler’s career and contributions to the sport and pop culture. The montage — scored with Greg Holden’s song “Hold On Tight” — included clips of Piper’s life in the ring, his affinity for trash talk, and even a scene from They Live, the John Carpenter cult classic.

“WWE is deeply saddened that Roderick Toombs, aka ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper — WWE Hall of Famer and Intercontinental Champion — passed away today at the age of 61,” WWE wrote in a statement on Friday. “WWE extends its sincerest condolences to Toombs’ family, friends and fans.”
