WWE Legend Pat Patterson has just revealed that for the past 50 years he has hiding the fact he is gay, and has now finally decided to go public. The 73-year-old dropped the news on the finale of WWE Network’s “Legends House” saying, “For once in my life I’m going to be me now.”

The WWE executive explained he’s kept the secret out of the public eye for 5 decades… and he and had a long-term partner for 40 years, before he passed away from a heart attack.

The reaction from Patterson’s fellow legends was to tell him, “We love you Pat … we always love you.”

Patterson was the first-ever WWE Intercontinental Champion and has been Vince McMahon’s right-hand man for decades.

    I believe that was what he was saying, he doesn’t know but wants to know.

    You are the reason he publicly came out about being gay. So wrestling fans like you who only know what they are told on the dirt sheets gossip and spread more rumors. We’ve all heard that story but it’s just that a story. You don’t know whats true and what’s false so why judge the man based on a story you heard!?

  • The cow says moo.

    I’d rather have him set the record straight if all the stories about him molesting ring boys and sexually harrassing wrestlers is true or not. Because if all that stuff is true then I have no sympathy for him at all.

  • Joe

    Clever.

    lol…”lie”

  • RayEMTFF

    Some 25 years ago news came out that he was a Gay!

    *accept

    I agree, FizPop is gay, but who cares. That is his business. I think we should except FizPop and other gays just as much as a heterosexual man. It shouldn’t matter.

  • Smitty

    I can’t wait for the day that something like this is no longer news.

  • Dan

    I’m gonna lie and tell people I’m gay for attention.

  • Eddie

    The only thing about this that is news to me is that I thought that him and Steve Lombardi were in a relationship. I guess that’s probably not true if he was with someone for 40 of the past 50 years.

  • Matthew Farrell

    I believe this was done to “shock” casual fans who are not familiar with Patterson or his personal life.

  • Matthew Farrell

    The media obviously cares, because they always make a huge deal when a celebrity comes out. But I agree, who cares? It shouldn’t matter to anyone.

  • Sirecoke

    This is news? It has been known for years

  • D2K

    ……..nooooo…..really?

  • D2K

    Yes, it has been common knowledge for a very long time. Jim Ross uses to comment about it all the time. There were jobbers that brought lawsuits against Vince McMahon because of alleged sexual abuse from Pat Patterson back in 1992. And I’m pretty sure the boys in the back knew that as well throughout his career in the ring as well.

  • William

    Who cares if he is gay, it’s not that big of news, I read 5-6 years ago that he is gay.
