It had previously been reported that a Pat Patterson documentary was heading to the WWE Network, and now more details have been revealed.
WWE Network News have noted that the documentary will be called “My Way: The Life and Legacy of Pat Patterson” and that it will premiere on Sunday January 24th 2021. The documentary will take at look at Patterson’s rise to wrestling fame and how he became one of the most important creative forces in the WWE.
Pat Patterson and those who knew him best look back at his unlikely path to the top of sports-entertainment. From growing up a poor kid in Montreal, to finding fame in San Francisco and New York City and working side-by-side with Vince McMahon, Pat became the celebrated creative force behind some of the greatest moments and matches in WWE history.
Pat Patterson was born January 19th 1941 in Montreal, Canada and during an in-ring career spanning over 25 years won numerous tag-team championships as well as being crowned the first ever Intercontinental Champion. Later in his role behind the scenes as a producer, Patterson is credited with creating the format for the Royal Rumble match, and became known as one of the greatest creative wrestling minds in the business. He is also credited as being the first openly gay star in professional wrestling.
Patterson was perhaps best known to younger fans for his on-screen role as one of Vince McMahon’s stooges during the Attitude Era, alongside long-time friend Gerald Brisco. He appeared on the July 22nd 2019 edition Monday Night Raw, dubbed “Raw Reunion,” winning the WWE 24/7 Championship in the process. This made him the oldest person to hold a title in WWE, before losing the title to Brisco later the same night.
The WWE Hall Of Famer sadly passed away aged 79 on December 2nd 2020 after suffering liver failure.
