WWE Legend has died at 79


WWE Legend and Hall of Fame wrestler Pat Patterson died of cancer at Miami hospital.  He was 79 years old.  Before the NXT Show on USA Network started, the WWE paid a tribute to Pat Patterson and his life in wrestling.

Pat Patterson was inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 1996. Throughout his career, he wrestled in 11 different promotions (1958-1984). While in WWE, he was the first Intercontinental Champion, Hardcore Champion, North American Heavyweight Champion, and the last title reign, the 24-7 Champion.

Here is Vince McMahon' statement: "Pat Patterson was more than the first Intercontinental Champion & father of the Royal Rumble Match. He helped lay the foundation for WWE as we know it. His mentorship shaped careers, his creativity sparked innovation and his friendship lifted spirits. Love you, Pat. We miss you."
