Legendary comedian Joan Rivers passed away on September 4, 2014. Rivers was certainly no stranger to the WWE, playing a role at WrestleMania 2 in 1986 as the guest ring announcer for the main event from the Nassau Coliseum, the "Boxing Match" between Mr. T and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.

Joan Rivers kept in touch with the WWE (and WWF) through the years, having superstars such as Hulk Hogan (pictured) on her show and more recently having WWE talent such as The Bella Twins on her E! network hit, "Fashion Police."
