The wrestling world reacts to the passing of Pat Patterson

Since the news broke of Pat Patterson passing away at the age of 79, the wrestling world has been reacting.

The impact of his involvement in the pro wrestling business and WWE is one to never be forgotten. He became the first-ever WWE Intercontinental Champion, but many fans will remember his contribution to WWE thanks to his work behind the scene and a close friend to Vince McMahon.

He came up with the original format for the Royal Rumble Match and was part of the “Stooges” with Gerald Brisco during the Attitude Era.

WWE has since issued a statement. You can see the reactions from various wrestlers and promotions here:
