Piper’s marriage lasted till his death in 2015.
Toombs and Piper were married from 1982 until his death in 2015. Her spouse had survived cancer, electrocution, an aircraft disaster, and multiple vehicle crashes before passing away in his sleep in July at the age of 61 in his Hollywood, California summer home. According to the death certificate, he died as a result of a cardiac arrest induced by hypertension, with pulmonary embolism playing a role.
Her husband is regarded as one of the best heel wrestlers of all time.
Piper said in an interview in 2015 that it is gratifying to know that the industry has projected him as the greatest heel in the history of the profession. He went on to say that as a heel, if you perform your job well, you are the most despised, noting that you have to spend $20 to dine at Denny’s so that they don’t spit in your meal. Piper said that his job was to make people dislike him and that he was well-trained to do it.
Because traveling from his home to the airport or public area was dangerous, he would be transported through the hotel’s service elevator. “The public doesn’t understand how much it takes to be a professional wrestler,” he said, “to be stabbed three times, once an inch from the heart.” His wife and children’s love kept him alive; else, he would have perished a long time ago. They had their first kid nine years after their marriage. His children transformed the monster into a father, and all he wanted was to be a decent father.
Mother of four children
She has four children with Piper, three girls, Ariel Teal, Anastacia Shea, and Falon Danika, and one boy, Colton. Teal Piper, their daughter, is following in her father’s footsteps. She debuted in professional wrestling for All Elite Wrestling in 2019 and then joined Women of Wrestling (WOW). Teal and her brother, former MMA fighter Colt Baird Toombs, worked on a book titled “Rowdy: The Roddy Piper Story,” which their father wrote before his death in order to better understand himself.
The book chronicles his professional life. Teal and her brother wanted everything in the biography to be true and accurate. They want people to know who their father was outside of the ring because there were numerous incidents that may not have shown him in the greatest light, but it was part of who he was, and they wanted to come from a place of honesty, Teal stated. Teal also recounted the most important thing her father taught her.
“You must live and breathe it.” You must do it all of the time. You must continually improve your trade and be prepared.”
She said that as good as he was at improv, he put in a lot of effort behind the scenes.
When her spouse was a wrestler, he never had a storyline.
Piper said on The Howard Stern Show in 2002 that he had never had a plot other than one in the WCW when a referee handed him an order right before ringing the bell, and it was the only script he received but tossed back to the person. The only thing that was known was that they wanted a common finale, whatever that was, and how you got there was the wrestlers’ magic, he said.
He also said that when John Carpenter requested him to shoot the film “They Live” in 1998, Vince McMohan Jr. became enraged and told him that he would have another movie for him. He then sent him a communication via his lawyer indicating that Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon were the only two WWE efforts. The feud began when he was given a movie and refused to comply with what Vince McMohan Jr. suggested since he worked on the film with John Carpenter. Then he was asked to quit WWE.
Her net worth is still being calculated. Her spouse was worth $4 million at the time of his death.
