In a very interesting note, Vince McMahon was not at the funeral for Roddy Piper this week. The two of them have had a rocky relationship over the years, as both are alpha males and very outspoken. WWE recently terminated the legends contract that Piper was under before he passed away from a heart attack. Triple H and Michael Hayes represented the company at the funeral.

The relationship between Bret Hart and Roddy Piper might be a bit closer than what a lot of fans realize. Hart stated that Piper was his closest friend in the business, and he owes a lot of the success of his career to him. Hart also noted that Piper was the only wrestler that went to visit him when he suffered a stroke back in 2002. Piper died from a heart attack on Friday.
