McMahon family leads wave of wrestlers sharing Pat Patterson memories

WWE on Fox’s Twitter

It would not be unreasonable to say that Pat Patterson was one of the most influential figures in modern pro wrestling. Even if we set his in-ring skill and innovative creative mind aside, for decades Patterson worked at the highest levels of the largest wrestling company the world has ever known. In that time he dealt with everyone from the company’s founding family to the newest developmental recruits.

They all have nothing but positive things to say about Pat Patterson, the human being.

Not surprising then that, within minutes of the news of his death hitting the web, social media has been awash in remembrances of a man who was a mentor, a cheerleader, and a friend to so many.

Like most wrestling fans, none of us here at Cageside Seats ever met Pat Patterson. But it was hard to watch WWE over the years and not feel like you knew him a little bit.

Thanks for the memories, Pat.

Rest in peace, and know that you were loved.
