The big Pat Patterson reveal on last night’s season finale of Legends’ House was that he announced he is gay.
That was probably wrestling’s worst kept secret as everybody in the business is aware that Patterson was gay although he might have not acknowledged it publicly.
Patterson “broke the news” during dinner to the rest of the cast mates. “I survived all this being gay,” Patterson revealed. He said that he has been in the closet for 50 years and it was time to say it publicly. He also said that he had a partner for 40 years but he has passed due to a heart attack.
The rest of the crew all shed a tear during an emotional speech from the 73 year old former Intercontinental champion.
