Pat Patterson - Wrestling Star Pat Patterson 'Comes Out' On Reality Tv Show

U.S wrestling legend Pat Patterson has revealed he's gay.

The 73 year old made the bombshell announcement during the finale of reality show Wwe Legends' House.

He told show regulars, "From where I come from, when I had nothing, no family, no money, and I ended up with Vince (MCMahon), working in the office, to me that was the biggest achievement of my life. But there's more to that, guys. There's more to that.

"Sitting here tonight I'm going to say something that I would never want to say publicly, but being here with you guys, for once in my life, I'm going to be me now. I survived all this being gay.

"I've lived with that for 50-some years. I survived the business, I did. I'm so proud of me."

Patterson was the first Wwe intercontinental champion, and was inducted into the Wwe Hall of Fame in 1996.
