Pat Patterson was one of the most legendary wrestling greats. Pat was the first Intercontinental Champion and had epic battles over the title. Younger fans know him for his comedy roles in the Attitude era, when he would appear to do Vince’s dirty work, always with a big smile on his face.
In 2019, he became the oldest competitor to win a belt when he briefly held the 24/7 championship. Pat was also the first openly gay superstar in the business and created the greatest gimmick match of all time, The Royal Rumble.
Godspeed, Pat, go BANANA!
