What about Canadian pro wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, just diagnosed with Lymphoma? Only 52, and certainly passes the "fame" test. Got to be worth considering.

Relevant article.

Not sure what to think about this one, not enough information yet. One to watch though for sure.

I think Piper's a good shout. I'd be tempted to continue Margaret Thatcher's inclusion too.

The quote said "just" diagnosed. I was under the impression this was a two or three year life expectancy. Anyway the guy is unknown and quote first comes from someone who self confesses to being "mad" in his own name! I'm going to be rotten here and say sorry "not DL material."

To be honest I didn't even know he had a chance of being on Deathlist. I would have entered Paverotti over him anyday.

Rowdy Roddy Piper, now there's a name I never thought I'd see on deathlist 2007. Speaking of pro-wrestlers, nothing amazes me more than knowing that Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are still alive. I honestly expected Kevin Nash to have been dead in 2005 when he suffered his heart attack.

I honestly can't see a Roddy Piper obit.

And that's not his real name. If he was realyl Scottish, yes, but he's Canadian.

The only wrestler who would get a UK obit is Hulk Hogan, surely?

Just think of it as a soap opera. That takes place inside a ring. In various arenas around the world. With sweaty, 300 lb. men. Sports meets soap operas.

Given the relatively short life spans of the likes of Andre the Giant and Owen Hart (plus loads more - this list is impressive/depressing http://prowrestling....lersdeaths.htm), I think "angels" was right all along.

Thanks everyone for all the comments on this year's DL. Lots of criticism for such an elderly list, then when we do pick someone relatively youthful we get accusations that he's not famous enough. Piper apparently hosted a celebrity wrestling show on UK TV in 2005 http://news.bbc.co.u...dio/4440957.stm, although I must confess I missed that one. Does anyone honestly think the likes of the Metro newspaper won't have a blurb about him if he dies?
