Wrestling Legend Pat Patterson Comes Out as Gay: VIDEO


Wrestling fans making their opinions known on social media and those in the business say they've known WWE legend Pat Patterson is gay for years, but he came out officially on an episode of the WWE reality show Legends' House that aired last night.

Said Patterson: "For once in my life I'm going to be me now. I survived all this being gay. I lived with that for 50 some years. I had a friend with me for 40 years and I lost him...it was tough guys. It was tough."

As Bleacher Report notes, the show was filmed in 2012 but the announcement didn't become public until last night.

  9. Well I think WWE is a place where families can gather and enjoy soft core gay porn- together. Nothing uncomfortable about it. (much)

  11. This was already known. In 1992 he was accused by several young men of harassing them.

  13. These acts of personal courage and self-revelation multipled by millions of ordinary gay people across America is what will ultimately eradicate homophobia in this country. And each person like Pat Paterson makes it easier for the next person.
