Wrestling icon Pat Patterson came out as gay Thursday, June 12, on the finale of WWE Network's reality show Legend's House. The 73-year-old WWE legend revealed on the episode that he had kept his sexual orientation a secret for decades, sharing his struggle with his fellow pro wrestling pals.
"Sitting here tonight, I'm gonna say something that I would never want to say, publicly," Patterson says in the clip provided by WWE. "For once in my life, I'm gonna be me now," he continues, tearing up. "I survived all this, being gay."
