Worst kept secret in wrestling but still, it can't be easy to "officially" come out after that many years.

Wrestling seems like something that would attract more gays. Costumes, make-up, sweaty men rolling around on the canvas...

The funny thing is that guys like Doug Sommers and Adorable Adrian Adonis were straight as an arrow.

WWE superstar Darren Young told TMZ cameras he was gay and "very happy."

Seems a little redundant...

Did  wrestling come out too?

Pretty much everyone knew. I heard that Vince (either Sr or Jr) had to pay off a couple ringboys back in the 80s because of Pat.

I forget what telecast I heard it or where, but I remember hearing Gorilla Monsoon (or was it Bobby Heenan?), talking about Pat Patterson being the firts Intercontinental Champion, and winning the belt in a tournament on a "hot, steamy night in Rio de Janeiro".  Didn't get the joke at the time, mainly because I was a kid.  10 years later, however, I laughed.

"... This was a secret Brain?"

"To most people Monsoon."

"Were you surprised?"

"I was, back in 1980, at the Sportatorium, in the locker room, I don't remember much from that night."

Has anyone mentioned that just about everyone new this? Jerry Lawler  and Gorilla Monsoon used to even crack sexual innuendos about it.
 
2014-06-13 03:41:29 PM  
Hasn't he been, more or less, out since at least 2008?

Seems like this was done for the reality show more than anything else.

If he was in the closet, the closet had no door.

The potential scandal involved with Patterson even made it on Donahue.

Jim Ross did, too. "He's single, fellas!"

Well done, media. Hook, line, and sinker. Free press for the WWF Network? Sure!

Not to mention "Exotic" Adrian Street.

Or during the Rock/Gagne match at Backlash '01:  "Oh look at this. The parade must be over, Patterson's here...with Brisco.

/Lawler's response: "WHAT?!"
 
2014-06-13 06:05:22 PM  
Well, good that he's finally admitted it...any wrestling fan who knows who Patterson was knew he was gay.  Wasn't exactly a well-kept secret.

Never knew about the Donahue thing - good find.

Believe it or not I've actually had some involvement in the world of professional wrestling. From what I've heard there are a lot of wrestlers who are 1) extreme Christian fundamentalists, and 2) gay. The kicker is there's an awful lot of them that are both.

I would not doubt that one bit.

While I wouldn't say "an awful lot," I have met a little of both. The latter were infinitely more fun.

Huh?  I thought he came out long ago.

This,

It must have been a glass closet.

You'd think folks would have gotten the hint after that Evening Gown match with Brisco, but yeah, not much of a secret.
 
2014-06-14 04:56:06 PM  
I think it's great that Pat has the courage to be himself. I have always said it is better to be true to yourself and be happy with yourself, and have the bigots hate you, then lie and pretend to be someone you're not, in order to be accepted by the bigots

You want to talk about innuendo...

JR: Patterson's locker room is disguised as a closet!

JR: Patterson's part time job doing that rear end work at the body shop...

*After Patterson crams a banana into Brisco's throat*
JR: No telling where that banana has been...

JR:  That's how bad Brisco wants the title back, to Bronco Buster Patterson....

JR:  The good thing about it, Pat, they're gonna let you keep your wardrobe!

King:  You think they'll let Brisco keep his?

JR:  I don't think he'll want it.

Patterson: "I'll show you what kind of friend I am!  I'll lay down in the middle of this ring..."

JR and King:  Oh no...

Patterson: "... I'll let you get on top of me..."

JR and King:  NO!

Patterson: "... And let you pin me!"

JR and King:  ... oh...
