Damn -- my wife and I just watched "They Live" two weeks ago. It was actually better than I remembered it, I'm not gonna say it's a classic, but it's worth a watch if you haven't seen it!

Loved Rowdy Roddy in the 80's, especially the Piper's Pit segments on Saturday night wrestling.

Piper was my favorite wrestler as well.

That fight scene in 'They Live' is an all-time classic.

RIP. Was one of my favorites. Sad that these guys all seem to go so soon. The drug abuse required to compete really takes its toll.

The painkillers I can understand to a certain extent, you are falling down onto a hard reverberating surface for 300+ nights a year with little time for recovery and rest.

The abuse of steroids to get a certain look though. That is beyond silly.
That is what gets most of the older generation of wrestlers. They pumped so much poison into their bodies that it catches up with them via heart problems, thyroid issues, bone density, back issues and shorter life spans over all.

It is a highly competitive field but my God, how much is your life worth?

Yep, you can tell they didn't have a lot of money to do it right but considering Pipper was a wrestler he did a decent enough acting job and the story was good. I like to watch this one when it is on.
