Pat Patterson WWE Legends

WWE legend and professional wrestling trailblazer Pat Patterson has passed away, as reported earlier this morning, and the outpouring of love and support from his friends, family and colleagues has been nothing short of tremendous.

WWE Legend Pat Patterson, Wrestling’s First Openly Gay Icon, Dead At 79

It was with great difficulty that we report the passing of Pat Patterson, a trailblazer in the industry and one of professional wrestling’s greatest legends. He was 79-years-old at the time of his death.

It would be an immense challenge to choose just one accolade that Patterson was best known for, boasting more than six decades of influence in the business.


He was the first ever Intercontinental Champion, credited with the creation of the Royal Rumble – one of WWE’s longest running and most beloved matches – and for many, many years was considered the right hand man of Vince McMahon himself.

Born Pierre Clermont, although he would later legally change his name to match his wrestling persona, Patterson was born in Montreal, Quebec and got his start wrestling in the late 1950s. He at first moved to Boston knowing little to no English, but expanded all over the United States throughout the 60s and 70s.

In 1979 he made his debut in McMahon’s World Wrestling Federation as a heel for the top babyface champions at the time, and spent the rest of his career working for the company in one capacity or another.

Patterson also considered himself to be the first openly gay professional wrestling superstar. His partner of more than 40 years, Louie Dondero, died of a heart attack in 1998.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and fans of the great Pat Patterson. Rest in peace.

For the second week in a row, WWE NXT will be headlined by a ladder match with major WarGames implications literally hanging in the balance.

Ahead of their four-on-four double cage match this Sunday at NXT Takeover: WarGames, team captain Shotzi Blackheart will face off against the opposition’s Raquel Gonzalez. The winner will earn their team the numbers advantage in the match.


This stipulation didn’t exactly come out of nowhere. Last Wednesday night’s show was also headlined by a ladder match – one that saw the “Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne defeat Kyle O’Reilly to earn Team McAfee the advantage in the men’s WarGames match at Takeover.

Shotzi Blackheart’s team so far consists of the recently returned Ember Moon and the Australian badass Rhea Ripley, as well as one more Superstar to be named later this week. They’ll step into the side-by-side double ring against Candice LeRae, her protege Indi Hartwell, Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez.

Join us for live coverage of WWE NXT every Wednesday night at 8:00 PM ET and make sure to join us this Sunday for exclusive live coverage of NXT Takeover: WarGames.
