73-year-old wrestling icon Pat Patterson came out after being in the closet for more than 50 years!

Better late than never, right??

Last night, WWE legend Pat Patterson came out as gay on the finale of the WWE Network's reality series Legends' House!

The 73-year-old made the emotional reveal to his fellow wrestling icons at the dinner table, saying he had been in the closet for more than 50 years! He said:

"For once in my life I'm going to be me now."

How awesome!

Pat also revealed that he had a partner for more than 40 years, but he sadly passed away after having a heart attack.

Not only is it amazing to see an icon like Pat Patterson speaking publicly about his sexuality, but it's also great to see him get such amazing support from his fellow WWE peers! Congrats, Pat!

    This was done for publicity for the show since he has been openly gay for decades. A simple google search will show stories referencing it over 10 years old.
