There was a bronze statue reveal for WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper during tonight’s WrestleMania 35 Axxess session in Brooklyn. Below is video from the reveal ceremony.

Included in the ceremony was Piper’s family, WWE Hall of Famers Sting, Brutus Beefcake and Ricky Steamboat, among others. There were also a fwe hundred lucky fans on site to see the reveal.

Piper is, of course, a legend in WWE and recently passed away. He will be remembered as one of the best heel characters of all time and he rivaled Hulk Hogan’s popularity in WWE in the 1980’s. He later went on to become an Intercontinental Title holder but never held the WWE Championship for the many decades he was in the business.

One of the first cross-over stars into movies, Piper was also a huge star known to stir up crowds wherever he went. He was easily one of the best talkers ever to hold a professional wrestling mic.

Wrestlers paid tribute to Piper after the ceremony, including soon-to-be-Hall of Fame recipient Brutus Beefcake.

WWE has now revealed bronze statues at Axxess events over the years for Flair, Piper, Bruno Sammartino, Dusty Rhodes and the Ultimate Warrior.
